Snapchat just became more fun — the photo and video sharing app has now introduced new features. There's a group video call feature where you can add up to 16 people in a video chat and Mentions, through which you can tag users in snaps that you upload on stories.

And if it's an audio chat, you can connect to as many as 32 people. 

In a blog post, the company said, "We designed Chat to feel less like texting and more like hanging out. That’s why when people open Chat, their Bitmoji pops up to say “I’m here!”. Today, we’re making Chat even more fun. Now, you can video chat with up to 16 of your friends at one time. Just tap the video camera icon in a Group Chat to get your friends together. Friends in the Group Chat will receive a notification, which will be an invite for them to join. How you express yourself is up to you. You can use Lenses, join only with your voice, or simply send messages that others can read while they talk. Every conversation is unique. Group Video Chat will begin rolling out to Snapchatters globally this week."

According to Business Insider, Snapchat has 158 million on a daily basis. And, according to Snap Inc's initial public offering prospectus, people open the app 18 times a day. So, according to a calculation, Snapchat users are spending 25 to 30 minutes (on an average) everyday.

Happy Snapchatting!
