Jared Grusd, the Snap Chief Strategy Officer, claimed that the Indian branch will concentrate on developing different strategic partnerships. It will help to create an engaged community of users and creators along with service to local advertisers. According to Grusd, the company has seen skyrocketing growth in the country during a one-year period, from Q2 2018 to Q2 2019. As reported by Snap, there are approximately 203 million Snapchat users every day on average. Snapchat is the successful production of Snap. It allows people to share different content in images that only last for a day.

This year, it is said that Snapchat will get 5 more languages. Later this year, 4 Indian languages have already come to this photo-messaging app to support local Snapchatters. Furthermore, to engage with the local creator community, the app had hosted the very first ‘Creator Summit’ last month in Mumbai.

In India, the Snapchat creator has cooperated with several popular brands such as Cadbury, OnePlus, Pepsi, etc. Thanks to the launch of Snapkit with support from Gaana.com and JioSaavn, users can post and share music content more easily.

According to Grusd, Snap is different from other social media platforms while tending to provide a medium for interaction among close friends.
