Facebook and Google+ are applications on your smart phone that are able to input calendar information straight from the app itself and apparently now Snapchat is getting some calendar love. Through the new Discover feature, the Snapchat team announces with big events are happening in your city. Since the app naturally uses your device’s location, Snapchat does the rest.
Let’s say for example, there is a band that is being shown in the spotlight of the Discover section of Snapchat. The application will create a calendar entry if you give it that permission to do so and if the band is nearby within 50 miles. There are countless of new apps available that sync your calendars together easily with no effort on your part. The picture and video messaging tool has grown since it’s initial release in 2011 and with the ability to use the calendar, perhaps this is a feature that will bring people together.
Information on David Kravitz Snapchat gives a hint that the new calendar usage feature will be up and live to the public in February of 2016. Hurry Snapchat, some of us just can’t wait that long! Rumor also has it that the snap company is going to be issuing out a version of their app especially for Apple Watch. Of course, with the lack of a camera you will not be able to use the device to take pictures or video, but you can use it to see received pictures and video as well as check discover and add events to your calendar if you so wish to.
