Snap Kit Brings Bitmoji, Snapchat Stories to Third-Party Apps

Snapchat is branching out. Snap on Thursday introduced a new developer kit, which lets third-party app makers integrate some of its “best features”–such as Bitmoji and publicly shared stories–into their own apps. Snap Kit has four main tools: Login Kit, Bitmoji Kit, Story Kit, and Creative Kit.

Thanks to Login Kit, you should start seeing “Log In with Snapchat” buttons inside other apps offering a quick and easy way to log in without having to create another account, similar to how you can already log into many apps with your Facebook account. Meanwhile, with Bitmoji Kit, developers can bring Snap’s personalized stickers into their own apps while Story Kit lets them embed publicly shared Snapchat Stories into their own platforms, a feature that was rumored last year. Finally, Creative Kit helps developers “integrate their own stickers, Filters, links, and other highlights — like high scores and workout stats — right into the Snapchat camera,” Snap explained in a Thursday blog post.

“Snap Kit brings the experiences you love on Snapchat into some of your favorite apps, without compromising your private account data,” the company said.

Snap promised to review “every single app” that uses the developer kit. Apps connected with Snap Kit get access to just your display name and Bitmoji. They will not require access to your email, phone number, location tracking data, or friend graph.

“You don’t share any of your friends’ data when logging in with Snap Kit,” the company wrote, taking a thinly-veiled shot at Facebook’s recent privacy scandal.

Plus, after 90 days of inactivity, apps are automatically disconnected.

“Your privacy and security come first,” the company wrote in a YouTube video about the new developer kit.

Apps like Tinder, Poshmark, Pandora, Giphy, Patreon, Postmates, Quip, Eventbrite and more have already agreed to utilize Snap Kit.
