Snapchat is launched by a group of former students at Standford University. The major idea of Snapchat is to connect people all around the world. Snapchat is the 1st messaging App that brought AR into a messenger. It is just like the Pokemon Go game in which you can place any AR picture and experience it in the real world. Rather than AR Snapchat also gives features like:
