That's a departure from past approaches where Snap worked to distance the key product from rival offerings.
Stories are usually just photos and videos taken over the course of 24 hours, but shared Stories will be available to those without the app on a new media player hosted on the Snapchat website for up to 30 days.
We have already told you that Instagram is testing a new word-focused tool called "Text" that can be used in the app's stories feature.

In a move that makes Snapchat look a bit more like Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube, the social platform will now let users share Stories outside of the app.
It not only goes some way to address Snapchat's biggest issue - increasing reach beyond its 178-million users - but it creates a possible replacement for much missed app, Vine.

For now, Snapchat will not include ads within the Stories that people view outside of its app, according to the Snap spokesperson.
In what seems to be its efforts to fight the sedated growth of the platform, Snapchat is apparently working to bring its flagship Stories feature to the web. A wider rollout will then follow as more regions receive the update.
You can also share Our Stories, which are a collection of snaps curated by Snapchat around major events, like Glastonbury, Pancake Day, or the Winter Olympics. Permitting story sharing on the web beyond just the app's platform indicates the growing future of the Snap further than just mobile limitations.
