Snap Games is the name of the all-new gaming platform of Snapchat. The chat feature of Snapchat has received some cosmetic changes to include the game’s icon now. The “rocket” button at the bottom of the screen in the Chat window represents Snap Games.
Upon hitting the game’s icon, it launches a new game that can be played with your friends in real-time. The games are coded in HTML5.
The games have already been rolled out but not to all worldwide users at the moment. This is because Snap is rolling them out to the users steadily to prevent server crash downs. Several users have received messages from Team Snapchat if Snap Games has been rolled out to them.
It is to be noted here that certain devices may not support Snap Games. If such a scenario arises, then you can try using Snapchat on a different device or you can also launch a different game on the same device and see if that is working.
If you wish to quit playing a game, tap on the cross icon at the bottom of the screen. You will further receive a prompt confirming whether you really wish to leave the game; so, you can tap on “Leave” to completely exit from the game.
How to Gain Rewards From Videos
If you are in dire need of points, then you can watch videos to earn rewards like coins or items. These in-game rewards can only be collected by watching a video ad entirely.
Control Game Activity Notifications
If you wish to turn off game activity notifications from your friends or groups, then you can use the below steps:
Go to the Chat screen.
Tap on friend or Group Bitmoji icon to open that particular profile.
Tap on the three-dotted icon located at the top.
Tap the game notifications setting and make the needed changes.
What could be more interesting than playing games on Snapchat? Snapchat was already preferred by people for its chat service, fantastically funny filters, stickers, and the Bitmojis.
The “My Story” feature was first introduced by Snapchat but soon became more popular on other platforms like Instagram and Facebook.
It is therefore, being presumed that Snapchat is introducing gaming to increase its popularity and user base as it is still not outperforming other social media platforms despite featuring interesting functions. With the arrival of games, Snapchat will assuredly attract more users.
Thus, keep your gaming spirit high as you now know how to play Snapchat games with your friends.
