Snapchat gets group video calls and Mentions feature for tagging friends

Snapchat introduces group video chat feature: Here's how you can use it

Group video chat will be for up for 16 Snapchatters and you'll be able to use face lenses during the calls.

Users can either open a group chat they already have in Snapchat or they can start a new one and then select the small video icon in the chat.

In addition to Group Video Chat, Snapchat today also announced support for Mentions. Up to 16 friends can video chat together at the same time.

Starting the chat is pretty easy, as you will simply tap the video icon when in a group chat.

If you're not looking your best at that moment, no sweat: you can join the chat with just voice, as well as toggle between video and voice.

Snapchat is a free download on the App Store.
