Snapchat Services Disrupted on Monday Snap Confirms

Some locations also have stories integrated into their Context Cards to make it easy to dive in and watch more Snaps from the places that interest you.

To do this, Snap has partnered with a number of companies, including Foursquare and TripAdvisor, to surface information about the places where users create Snaps. The additional Context Cards may include: reviews from critics and customers; directions to the venue as well as hours of operation and phone numbers; rides from ride-sharing services; reservations at restaurants; websites for more information; and other Snaps from around the area. Context Cards also provide a way to take simple actions like calling for a ride with Uber or Lyft or reserving a table through OpenTable, Resy or Bookatable.

Snapchat is now trying to give those users a reason to stay on their app, introducing Tuesday a new feature called Context Cards that appear at the bottom of a snap.

And Ann Bordetsky, Head of Product Partnership, Uber, added: "Snap's innovative integration is another way that Uber connects you with friends and all the experiences your city has to offer".

Las Vegas gunman booked Chicago hotel overlooking Lollapalooza, report says
He has reportedly been stockpiling the weapons for decades but purchased 33 in the past year. Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017, two days before the festival's August 3 kickoff.

The first Context Card that appears contains basic information like the name of the place, category of venue - eg department store or restaurant - and partner's rating.

Reacting to the tweets of the anguished Snapchat users, the company posted an acknowledgement message on its Twitter page, adding that its team is working towards resolving the technical glitch.

For Snapchat users who are 25 years-old and younger this rises to 40 minutes a day.

Snapchat's latest update wants to make it harder for you to close the app once you've started Snapping.
