Snapchat Teams Up With Google For Quick Pixel 6 Access
Snapchat has teamed up with Google to allow two-tap access to its app for the new Pixel 6 phone.
Dubbed “Quick Tap to Snap,” the feature allows users to tap the back of the phone twice to open Snapchat directly, regardless of whether the phone is locked.
Snap Chief Executive Officer Evan Spiegel introduced the feature during Google’s presentation.
“For Snapchatters, speed matters,” he said. “Billions of Snaps are created every day, and our community wants to be ready to Snap everyday moments, as they happen.”
For Snapchat and Google, this seems to be a mutually-beneficial situation. Those with the Pixel 6 will no doubt default to Snapchat for quick-shot moments, while those who are already into Snapchat will want the Pixel 6 to enhance their use of it.
It’s the latest smart move from Snap, who have recently teamed with Disney to allow tourists at Walt Disney World to incorporate Snap AR into their photos and videos while at the park.
