The popular social app Snapchat inaugurates a new section called Featured where the most interesting and fun short Snap videos of the community will be posted. A move that represents the ultimate challenge to the platform TikTok after the Reels of Instagram and the startup Triller.

In order to post your best Snap videos, you will need to comply with the guidelines provided by the app and pass a careful moderation system, which also includes disabling the public comments below the posts. At the moment Featured it will be introduced in 11 countries and later it will also arrive.
