Snapchat is experimenting with an events feature of its own

From The Verge: Snapchat is working on integrating support for events into its service in an apparent attempt to compete with similar functionality offered by Facebook. The unannounced feature was spotted in Snapchat’s code by Jane Manchun Wong, an app researcher with a solid track record for uncovering new social media features before they’re officially announced.

It’s currently unclear exactly how Snapchat’s event feature would work — if it’s ever released — but a screenshot posted by Wong shows how its interface looks. When you create an event, you can assign it a time and a place. Swiping up on an invite allows recipients to join a group chat for the event. There’s no word on whether the feature can be used to make public events or if it will only support private events between you and your immediate Snapchat friends.
