Snap Inc. and Google Partner to Bring “Quick Tap to Snap” to Pixel 6
Snap Inc. today announced at the Pixel Fall Launch event a new feature on Google’s Pixel 6 called “Quick Tap to Snap,” launching later this year. This partnership with Google marks the first time Snap has created a camera-mode version of Snapchat accessible directly from a phone lock screen and will make the Pixel 6 the fastest phone to make a Snap.
By tapping the back of the phone, this speedy and simple gesture will help Snapchatters capture moments quickly before they disappear. Designed to launch into “Camera Only” mode on the lock screen, Snapchatters can create Snaps without having to unlock their device. Once Snap is ready to share, Snapchatters can authenticate on their device to unlock the full app experience. You can also make use of the ultrawide camera in Snapchat’s new ultrawide selfie feature on Pixel 6 Pro.
