Snapchat unveils crowd surf feature
Ever one step ahead, Snapchat has unveiled its latest feature—no, not another series of silly filters, but a “crowd surf” addition that will offer a seamless snap of a live musical event.
The crowd surf feature will essentially bind the series of snaps coming from the same musical performance and align them into one complete video that will maintain the given song played by the artist from start to finish without interruption or disjunction. The video will also navigate the venue, showing the whole scope of the area. The feature will work best with “public event in the future including concerts and speeches, but will require tons of people shooting and submitting Snaps from the same moment,” according to Tech Crunch.
