Snapchat has introduced a new feature called Dynamic Stories for its users. This feature will allow publishers to create posts based on stories published on a website. As per the company, “This new Discover format uses a partner’s RSS Feed to automatically create Stories from the content a Publisher is already creating on the web.” The feature is now being tested in the US, the UK, France and India.
