Snapchat Context Cards offer up more information about the Snaps you see

Twitter

Context Cards will aim to teach Snapchat users more about the world and enable them to get more information about whatever catches their eye.

But if anyone watching those snaps was interested in visiting those places, they'd likely have to tap a separate app, such as Google or Yelp, for more information.

Snap is launching a new way to wring dollars from Snapchat's fleeting posts with Context Cards: a feature to let users access more info or launch third-party services based on the location of the Snaps they're viewing.

Snap will also let users link to other apps - like Uber or Lyft to book a ride, or OpenTable to make a reservation - though there won't be any way to make purchases directly inside Snapchat.

And Ann Bordetsky, Head of Product Partnership, Uber, added: "Snap's innovative integration is another way that Uber connects you with friends and all the experiences your city has to offer". For example, someone may send you a picture of a plate of food they're now devouring, and add a geofilter to the image detailing where exactly they are.

If a Snap says "more" that means there is more information available and to find out more swipe up on the Snap.

These include Snaps tagged with the white, venue-specific, geofilters or that have been submitted to the firm's public "our story" collections, which appear in snap map or search.

'Billions of Snaps created each day on Snapchat power products like stories, search, snap map and now, context cards.

The first Context Card that appears contains basic information like the name of the place, category of venue - eg department store or restaurant - and partner's rating.

Its launch marks an enormous shift for Snapchat, which is becoming much more like a full-blown social network that's plugged into lots of different services, rather than the camera app it regularly claims to be.
