Snapchat and Square have partnered to unveil 'Snapcash', an easy way to send money to friends from Snapchat.

Here's the official announcement...

Today is a big day for us - we are launching our first product created in partnership with another company. We’re huge fans of the folks at Square and have been big admirers of Square Cash since it launched – just type a dollar amount into the subject line of an email and send cash to friends. Genius!

We loved it so much that we wanted to create something with them that felt Snapchat-y. So we built a Snapcash prototype and shared it with the team at Square. Luckily for us, they were just as excited as we were and wanted to build it together.

The product you’re seeing today is fast, fun, and incredibly simple. After you enter your debit card, it’s securely stored by Square, who will swiftly process your payment and send cash directly to your friend’s bank account. Just swipe into chat, type the dollar sign, an amount (e.g. $11.25), and hit the green button.

Snapcash will be available to Snapchatters in the United States who have a debit card and are 18 or older. The Snapchat app should be updated with the new feature shortly.

You can download Snapchat from the App Store for free. Take a look at the video below for more details...

Didn't they get Snap"hacked" a few months ago? No one can be that dumb as to give their credit card info to them, regardless of any hacks, cause it's simply insecure.

Apple would screw them. As we all know apple doesn't like competition. So if anything to do with money / cash would fcuked since they have apple pay. And yes, wait for a law suit. Coming years apple would say all the banks in the world are invented by them apply patent for the same. lol
