Snapchat is partnering with restaurant review website The Infatuation to allow users to search for food by location on Snapmap, the company announced. The social media app is adding a new map layer from The Infatuation to give users access to restaurant recommendations for places near them.
Users in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Seattle, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, DC and London can find a new level in the top right corner of the map and click Infusion to start the search. Huh. You can choose the nearest restaurant. Once you’ve found your favorite restaurant, you can share it with your friends via chat or add it to your favorites to save for later and come back to it when you’re planning one can return.
As part of the new partnership, users will now automatically see infusion reviews into location profiles in more than 50 cities around the world.
Snapchat says that more than 250 million users use Snap Maps every month to see what their friends are up to. The company launched Layers in SnapMap last year to give users a new way to work with their friends. The company’s Layers feature allows users to selectively add data directly from Snap’s developer partners to their maps so they can see the world in a unique way.
Earlier this year, Snapchat partnered with Ticketmaster to give users a new way to find live entertainment events in Snap Map. The app now features a suggested next show based on your preferences through which you can swipe left and right to browse through. The company sees it as a better dating app. Users are able to browse through new layers on Snap Map for upcoming applications in nearby locations.
