Snapchat, Inc. Key Developments
STATS LLC and Snapchat Partner to Enhance App Experience for Sports Fans
Oct 27 15
STATS LLC entered into a partnership with Snapchat that leverages the mobile app’s “Geofilter” product – location-based art overlays Snapchatters add to their photo and video Snaps. Powered by STATS and available at select major sporting events and stadiums today, these “dynamic Geofilters” allow Snapchatters to add real-time score updates to their photo and video Snaps to better express the excitement of the game with their Snapchat community. These live-score dynamic Geofilters, which were first introduced earlier this month in venues for professional leagues from the NBA to MLB, make their championship debut during The World Series. Snapchatters attending these games with location services enabled in the app will automatically see the option to add a dynamic Geofilter to their photo and video Snaps. The live-score dynamic Geofilters powered by STATS are an extension of Snapchat’s core Geofilter product which use geofencing technology to overlay custom graphics around a specific place – like a stadium – that are then available to the Snapchat community.

Snapchat has decided to shut-down its in-house original content provider Snap Channel less than a year after it started producing its own videos, stories and shows. Earlier this month, Snapchat removed the channel that housed programs such as Literally Can't Even and Vergaraland with the promise that it would eventually return. Now as Deadline reports, after careful examination the company cancelled any future plans with the channel and subsequently laid-off the staff responsible for running it.
