The time had to come eventually, right?
Even though Snapchat had moved from mobile app to actual hardware developer, it was still missing any kind of desktop functionality – but when you really think about it… why is it necessary in the first place?
Snap Inc. doesn’t care about that question, and has announced that its Snapchat app is expanding, and will make its desktop debut on Google’s new laptop-tablet hybrid, the Pixelbook.
Matt Vokoun, Hardware Executive at Google, states of the expansion:
“We’re thrilled to announce that the Snap team is working with us to bring an amazing Snapchat experience to the larger screen on Pixelbook.”
The Pixelbook has no rear camera, only a front-facing camera for selfies, so it’s unclear at this time how Snapchat would function on the device.
When queried on the matter by Business Insider, the company states “it is excited about the partnership [with Google] and would share more information closer to the PixelBook’s launch.”
