Snapchatters can now break the ice on Tinder with their Bitmojis, share an ETA on their order from Postmates with a sticker, watch Stories from their favorite fashion icons on Poshmark, and more.

  1. Creative Kit: Integrate your own stickers, Filters, links, and more right into Snapchat’s camera! Creative Kit lets Snapchatters bring highlights from your app — like high scores, workout stats, or new playlists — right into the Preview screen, so they can add their own touch and share it with friends.
  2. Login Kit: Snapchatters can link their Snapchat account to your app, and bring their Bitmoji avatar with them. You can integrate it in fun new ways — both in your app, and in ours! You can even use Login Kit to give your community a quick, secondary way to log in.
  3. Bitmoji Kit: Bitmoji Kit lets Snapchatters express themselves with Bitmoji stickers across your app — so they can chat with a real sense of personality.
  4. Story Kit: With Story Kit, you can embed Snapchat Stories on your own platform to showcase your community! You can also search Public Stories based on location, time, captions, and more — so you can see what your fanbase is up to.

We believe that privacy is essential to honest self-expression. It’s hard to be yourself if you don’t feel safe! That’s why Snap Kit was designed to share minimal data — safely, and only with Snapchatters’ explicit permission.

Snap Kit apps only need the basics — we’ll only be asking for a Display Name and a Bitmoji when someone logs in somewhere with Snapchat. Also, if a Snapchatter hasn’t used an app in over 90 days, it’ll automatically be disconnected from their account.

We’re excited to see what new creativity Snap Kit will help our community unleash — on Snapchat, and on other apps, too! If you’re a developer and interested in trying Snap Kit, head over to the portal to get learn more and get started.

Happy Snapping!

Love,

Team Snap Kit
