The web platform will be available exclusively for Snapchat Plus subscribers in the US, the UK and Canada, and Snapchatters across Australia, and New Zealand.

The Snapchat platform has nearly 332 million users.

Snapchat for Web will be compatible with Google’s Chrome browser and not Apple’s Safari at the launch.

“With more than 100 million Snapchatters using our voice and video calling each month on average, we’re excited to offer a new way for our community to keep conversations going on their computers,” said Snap, the parent company of Snapchat.

Snapchat for Web includes top messaging features like Chat Reactions and Chat Reply, along with Lenses which will roll out soon.

Snapchat last month announced that its Snapchat Plus, a collection of experimental, and pre-release features, is available for $3.99 per month.

It is available in the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. Snapchat will expand the Plus feature to more countries over time.
