To keep in touch with your loved ones during this period of confinement, many applications, and in particular certain social networks, offer a group video call feature.
We are thinking in particular of WhatsApp, FaceTime or Instagram. More surprisingly, Snapchat also offers the option of multiple video calling, with a limit of 16 users at a time.
To take advantage of this option, follow this tutorial which brings together the 5 steps to follow to start a group video chat.

It is very easy to set up a Snapchat group chat, for this:
- Launch Snapchat.
- Touch theicon of Cat, at the bottom left.
- Open a new chat by pressing thebubble icon with pencil, top right.
