Today, Snapchat company Snap Inc announced the launch of its gaming integration for the social app, entitled Snap Games.
Snap Games is accessed from the Chat bar within Snapchat and allows users to play games with friends in the app without a separate installation. Chat sending and voice chat can both continue as normal while playing any of the titles available.
To start, Snap Games will include six games:
- Bitmoji Party
- Tiny Royale - Zynga
- Snake Squad - Game Closure
- C.A.T.S. Drift Race - ZeptoLab
- Zombie Rescue Squad - PikPok
- Alphabear Hustle - Spry Fox
Snap Games has been rumored for some time now, ever since Tencent acquired a 12% stake in Snap back in November of 2017. Snap then went on to acquire British VR startup PlayCanvas in March of 2018 as the company continued to look more closely into the mobile games space.
