Snapchat stories are the main attraction of the app as the filters are the most unique. Snapchat announced that it will now allow third-party apps to share Snapchat stories in their services. This is a big step in the way to get more users attracted from other apps. Last year at the Partner Summit event, this feature was first previewed.
The feature works with the additional app called App Stories. With its help, you can share your Snapchat stories on other apps. This update will let the users make the Snapchat Stories more useful as more app users can view them.

How Do Snapchat Stories sharing work?
Snapchat Stories will be shared with the other apps by the users who are using App Stories. This will be working once they connect their Snapchat account to it. After that, users can directly share the Snapchat stories to the other third-party apps. App Stories is a part of the Snapchat developer Story kit. This might make the Snapchat Story appear for more than 24 hours on the other apps. Create stories using the incredible Snapchat filters and share it with your friends and followers on the different apps.
Which apps support these features currently?
Presently four apps, namely – Triller, Hily, Octi and Squad support this feature from Snapchat.
The Triller app, which is a music video app, will show the shared Snapchat Stories to all the accounts following the users. Squad, which is a video app, will let the users view the shared Snapchat stories in the group calls. While Hily, which is a dating app, will integrate the shared Snapchat stories with their own stories feature. Octi is a dating app and will show the shared Snapchat stories on the user’s profile.
We might soon see the feature working along with Houseparty and Tinder as this was first shown as a teaser on both of these apps in the last year Partner Summit. However, it is not confirmed, but soon more apps will connect and use this feature from Snapchat.
With the innovative style of advertising, Snapchat has made its cool move of expanding business. We hope this will prove to be in the company’s benefit of growing the number of users.
