Snapchat has announced a new Dynamic Stories feature within its Discover feed to highlight news and information for users. This feed option will allow users to view the world’s latest happenings on the platform as it breaks. The social media platform will create Stories from the content created by the verified media publishers and content creators on the Web. Dynamic Stories is being tested in India, France, the US and the UK for now, and will come to more countries in the future. In India, Snapchat will use the media partners’ RSS feeds to automatically create stories for the Snapchat community in English, Hindi, and Marathi languages.
Snapchat on Tuesday, April 12, announced the launch of Dynamic Stories via a press release. Starting today, Snapchat members will see Stories update in real-time in the Discover feed of their Snapchat accounts. Dynamic Stories will use RSS Feeds to create Stories from the content a publisher has already generated on the Web. As mentioned, in India, Dynamic Stories will display content in different languages including English, Hindi, and Marathi. The company is planning to onboard various partners across other languages as well.
In India, Snapchat will feature content from publishers like GQ India, MissMalini, Pinkvilla, Sportskeeda, The Quint, Times Now, and Vogue India initially.
