4 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

Today, Snap Inc. introduced a new API called Snap Kit, which will allow 3rd parties to integrate Snapchat features into their apps. Snap Kit consists of four sub-Kits: Creative, Login, Bitmoji, and Story.
Now that Snap is allowing 3rd parties to access user data, privacy is of the utmost concern. Snap is addressing privacy by deactivating apps that are inactive for 90 days, as well as only providing the basic data: your username and Bitmoji.

Starting today, developers will be able to put a little Snap in their apps.

Today Snapchat finally gets a true developer platform, confirming TechCrunch's scoop from last month about Snap Kit. This set of APIs lets other apps piggyback on Snap's login for signup, build Bitmoji avatars into their keyboards, display public Our Stories and Snap Map content, and generate branded stickers with referral links users can share back inside Snapchat.
