Snapchat Stories comes to Tinder and Netflix


Snapchat users will now be able to share their stories directly to popular dating app Tinder and linked up to Netflix letting them share the latest shows they are watching with their friends.


The multimedia messaging service's new feature is expected to be integrated later this year as part of the newly launched App Stories, announced on Thursday at its Partner Summit in Los Angeles.

When users go to publish a photo or video taken on Snapchat, they can currently choose whether to share the "snap" as a story or send it to specific recipients.

Under the new plans, a My Tinder Story option will appear - giving users the ability to upload their posts directly to Tinder.

It is not clear how the stories will appear in Tinder as the project is still under development.
The launch is part of Snap Kit, which integrates more than 200 apps into Snapchat.

As part of the expansion, Snapchat's digital avatars, where users create a cartoon version of themselves, will be integrated into wearable devices for the first time.

Snapchat is hoping that the partnership with Tinder will help to draw more traffic to its app.
Tinder used to have a Moments service similar to Snapchat, but this was discontinued in November 2015.

Users could share photos that disappeared after a short time - and any of their matches could like or dislike these posts by swiping left or right, just as they would with profiles.
Other apps aside from Tinder will also be part of the App Stories service, including group video chat app Houseparty and travel app Adventure Aide.

Fitbit smartwatch users will be able to have their Bitmoji avatar appear on their watch face and see it react to their movements.

It was also announced that Snapchat users will be able to share details about the shows and movies they are watching directly from Netflix. Similar features are being unveiled for the crowdfunding platform GoFundMe and the photography app VSCO.
