It had six games to begin with, but the platform has been growing, and now, it includes something called "Minis" along with an ever-expanding catalogue of multiplayer games.
Snapchat's gaming platform is called Snap Games. Pitched as a "way to hang out with your friends on Snapchat", just about all the games and apps within Snap Games are multiplayer-based. Snap redeed the chat feature on Snapchat to include a "rocket" button that you tap to jump into a game and play with friends. Snap is likely hoping that its gaming platform will help keep users on the Snapchat platform, as recent reporting shows its users may not be using the app as much as they once did.
Many services, including Instagram, have copied Snapchat's key features, like Stories. So, the onus is on Snapchat to continue to innovate and keep its users coming back. Bitmoji Party reminds us of Mario Party, but with Bitmoji characters in place of the famous plumber and his friends.
It features smaller game experiences that can be played with up to eight friends at a time, including a zombie game where players infect one another. There are five games in total in Bitmoji Party. Aside from Bitmoji Party, Snap Games has steadily grown and now includes over 20 gaming titles. Here are some of the standouts:. For a detailed description of all the games, check out Snapchat's FAQ hub. Instead of being fun games, though, Snap refers to Minis as " bite-sized utilities " to help friends.
Once you click on the rocket ship icon in a chat, you'll be taken to a menu with both Games and Minis, so its worth knowing the difference. So far, there are only seven Minis, but some of them can be pretty useful. Snap Games and Snap Minis are accessible through a new rocket-shaped icon in the chat menu. By clicking the rocket icon, your friends in the chat will get a notification and will be allowed to . For games, the person who starts the session is the game master. As we said, when you launch a game, everyone in the chat will get a notification.
