Snapchat launches Bitmoji widget chat shortcuts for your homescreen
Snapchat is doubling down on private messaging as Instagram and Facebook Messenger clone and steal usage from its Stories feature.
Now you can instantly start chatting with your best friends on Snapchat. Instead of digging a chat thread out of Snapchat, users can select their favorite friends, create Bitmoji Widgets for them with their personalized avatars, and click them from their iOS Today screen or Android homescreen to launch straight into a chat with that friend. A Snap spokesperson confirmed the feature launch to TechCrunch.
