Snapchat desktop version, Instagram direct payments, and Amazon Prime video new look
Snapchat is launching a desktop version of its mobile app. Snapchat for web will allow users to send messages and make video calls from their computers. The desktop version will start off with limited features, and it’s only available to subscribers who pay for Snapchat plus.
Instagram users can now pay for items directly in their dms. That means customers won’t have to request invoices via other apps. Users will also be able to ask questions about a product and track orders all in the same message thread.
Amazon Prime Video has a new look, which is meant to be "less busy and overwhelming", according to the company. The main navigation is now in a column of six main areas, on the left side of the screen. There’s also a "top 10" list on the home screen, so you can see what’s popular.
