For people far too addicted to Snapchat
Are you unnaturally addicted to Snapchat? Me neither, but apparently some people are literally so addicted to Snapchat that they feel the need to literally wear it. That’s what Snapchat is hoping anyways, as the company has just announced Snapchat Micro, a launch application for Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
The premise, as you can see above, is simple – take a picture with your Galaxy Gear’s camera, pick the length of time you want it to show before its gone forever, pick a friend and send it on its way. Essentially this is the full Snapchat experience replicated on a smartwatch, which lets be honest here, isn’t all together too difficult to imagine working.
Teenagers everywhere go wild
Snapchat has taken the world by form like nothing I’ve seen sin formspring back years ago now – it’s been an overnight hit and an instant sensation, allowing users everywhere to take a photo, scribble on it, add some text, and message it to a friend for an extraordinarily limited viewing time. While I don’t get the compulsion to constantly Snapchat my friends, that doesn’t mean thousands of other people don’t have the urge, and to appease those people Snapchat addicts can now send not only photos to their friends, but also short videos.
Each clip can be up to 10 seconds long, the same time limit that photos have. This will surely add on nicely to the 50 million photos people send via Snapchat every single day, a statistic the company reported just recently.
The Snapchat update with video recording is now available for all iOS users in the App Store.
