Snapchat announced Tuesday that users would soon be able to video chat with up to 15 of their friends in the app at any given time.

These new features should reach all Snapchat users over the next few weeks, the company said.

"Today, we're making Chat even more fun". The updated feature allows up to 32 people to join a voice-only call. Once you hit the video camera icon, all of your friends in the chat thread will be invited to join the call. Tagged friends will receive a notification that they have been mentioned, prompting them to view a specific story.

The social media platform said the new feature would roll out to users globally this week. As usual, all of the same face filters will be available to users while they're in a group video chat. Then, tap on the video or phone icon to initiate the video or audio chat respectively.

Snapchat added the option to video and voice chat to the app in 2016 but is expanding it with the latest update.

Instagram has introduced a flurry of Snapchat-like features over the last two years to great success, with more people now using Instagram Stories every day than use Snapchat in total.

Mentions in Snapchat work just like they do in other applications.

Snapchat also announced the launch of a tagging feature on Snap Stories. When they enter the video chat, you'll get an alert above your keyboard to let you know they've joined. It will also match a feature in Facebook's Messenger app.

Do you have some big news to share with your friends? Simply start typing a user's @ name and you should see a suggestion pop up, allowing you to easily tag that person in your Story. This should make it a (ahem) snap to tag the right person.
