The move is created to boost Snapchat's profile beyond the mobile app as Facebook and Instagram provide fierce competition to the social media app. According to the company, "Each Snapchatter's own 2017 Story will include snaps that are automatically categorized and strung together to tell a fun, year-end narrative that's personal to you".
Snapchat, which was not immediately available for comment, has struggled to grow beyond its core base of young users.
The "Stories Everywhere" feature, which Snapchat hope will provide for more user growth, is reportedly being developed with the aim of being released next year.
It probably pains Snapchat to hear how many people enjoy Snapchat features on apps created by one of its biggest rivals, but that's exactly what's happening these days. To lead the effort, Snap Inc has apparently hired former News Corp executive Rahul Chopra. The war to outdo each other these social media platforms keep rolling out new features to the Stories.
Instagram has a lot more than 200 million daily users - the number is north of 600 million - but it looks like Facebook wanted to highlight only the Stories-related number in its announcement.
In addition, Snap has also been dabbling with the idea of allowing other apps to access its feeds of user-generated videos. But unlike say a Twitter or a Facebook post, you can not embed Snap stories elsewhere. The feature will walk you through your moments on Snapchat throughout 2017. That is, it has 4.5 million over the last quarter.
What do you do when the competition is beating you in terms of monthly active users? Snap has committed to continuously invest in developing new processes to ensure that Android users get a high-quality application. Snap is a public company.
