Snapchat users will now be able to send musical GIFs through chats, or as part of stories through TuneMoji. The music GIF network is integrating into Snap allowing the app’s millions of users to add TuneMojis in chats and stories.
However, you will need to have both TuneMoji and Snapchat downloaded in order to send musical GIFs.
Since launching in 2014, TuneMoji has been steadily growing, with around 20 million users already. The app allows people to create and share the GIFs, which all feature licensed music, to enhance their chat.
TuneMoji is backed by recording artists such as DJ David Guetta, Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am, as well as Napster co-founder Sean Parker.
“Adding music to GIFs is the next logical step in the evolution of visual communication,” TuneMoji’s founder and CEO, James Fabricant was quoted as saying.
The partnership with TuneMoji is among many that Snapchat is adding onto its Snap Kit. Other early launches include Tinder, creator fundraising site Patreon, and logistics service Postmates.
