Snapchat stories in open platform

Photo sharing app Snapchat is expanding the potential reach of its Stories by allowing users to post them to third-party apps like Tinder and allowing for deeper integration with other apps like JioSaavn, Netflix and VSCO.

The Tinder feature will be possible with a new App Stories addition to its Snap Kit, which can be used by third-party app developers to integrate some of Snapchat’s popular features to their apps.

For Snapchat, Stories were a hit feature, driving most of the engagement on the app, until Instagram copied this and launched it on its own platform in August 2016. Since then, Facebook, WhatsApp have all launched their own versions of Stories, following Snapchat.

Other apps which will support the App Stories feature in the future include HouseParty  and Adventure Aide.
