Snapchat introduces group video chat feature: Here's how you can use it

The big sell of the video chat feature is that it supports Snapchat filters so you can use all the hilarious filters that spice up your snaps while on a live call.

Snapchat is rolling out group video chats - the same kind of group video chats that apps like Houseparty and Facebook Messenger offer.

If you don't want to get in on the video chat fun, but still want to chat, there's a way to do so.

To join a video call, select an existing group chat you have in your messages or create a new one. Tagged friends will receive a notification that they have been mentioned, prompting them to view a specific story.

When a friend joins a group video chat, their name will light up and appear above the keyboard to confirm that they've joined the call.

Both Group Video Chats and Mentions have just launched, but Snapchat says they'll take a few weeks to roll out to everyone. As usual, all of the same face lenses will be available to users while they're in a group video chat.

To start a video chat, tap the video icon in a group chat in the app.

The new group chat option is being heralded on the Snap Inc. However, users will be able to have group voice chats with up to 32 people. Going forward, Snapchat users can tag their friends on the stories. People that see tagged snaps will be able to swipe up and add the person as a friend, according to The Verge.

Mentioning other users is a rather trivial feature for regular consumers but is extremely valuable to celebrities and high-profile users that have large audiences.

The new feature could help users stay engaged and spend even more time in the app. The feature could let brands call out individual employees or followers in Stories, or promote influencers' content.
