Snap inc, the parent company of Snapchat announced Context Cards on Tuesday. Snapchat team up with outside companies like TripAdvisor, Foursquare, Michelin, Goop, OpenTable, Resy, Bookatable, Uber and Lyft to include their services inside the Snapchat app.
On certain Snapchat posts like photo of a building or place uploaded to Our Stories, other Snapchat users will be able to find out more related information about the place in the picture including maps, reviews, booking options, even book Uber rides to get there. For example, if a coffee shop is tagged in a snap. The app will give you reviews how good is their coffee and give you the option to make a reservation there through OpenTable, or book a ride to it through either Uber or Lyft.
Context Cards will not be available on every Snapchat posts. So you do not have to worry if every photo that you upload to Snapchat will be transformed into a marketing tool. Context Cards will only be available on the location that has been tagged with the company’s venue-specific Geofilters, or with any Snap that has been submitted to the public ‘Our Story’ feed and appears in Snap Map or Search.
Context Card is available on a post if you find the word “More” which appears at the bottom of the snap. You just need to swipe up the snap to get more information on the physical location. The function will work on both snaps from friends and on Snap Maps.
Snapchat Context Card will be available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and New Zealand on iOS and Android at launch, with additional countries to be announced at a later date.
So that’s how to book uber or make a restaurant reservation using Snapchat Context Cards, a big feature that could completely transform the way people use the Snapchat app.
