Snap Inc has announced a milestone of over 200 million monthly active Snapchatters in India.
The company said it continues to invest in India through a localised platform experience, local content initiatives and partnerships, and a dedicated focus on regional creators via Spotlight and Stories, which helped Snap reach this milestone.
As per the company, ensuring relevance to local users has remained critical for Snapchat in India, with now more than 120 million Indian Snapchatters watching content across Stories and Spotlight.
Spotlight, Snapchat's user-generated entertainment platform, continues significant growth with time spent in India on Spotlight more than tripling, as per it.
Ajit Mohan, President, APAC, Snap Inc, said, “I am thrilled to have joined Snap at a time where the momentum among our Indian community has never been stronger. We see incredible potential for partners, creators, and brands to build communities and businesses on Snapchat, and we couldn’t be more excited about our future. Young India has particularly valued the healthy and private environment that has been at the heart of our experiences and this will continue to be our focus going forward.”
Now Snapchatters in India will have access to My AI - a new, experimental AI-powered chatbot customised for Snapchat. My AI can recommend birthday gift ideas, plan a trip for a long weekend or even suggest a recipe for dinner. Snapchatters can also customise My AI with their own unique name and select a Wallpaper for their Chats.
In India, Snapchatters play with Augmented Reality (AR) Lenses over 50 billion times every month, and over 85% of Snapchatters use Lenses to visually express themselves during festive months in India, the company said.
