Yes, you read the headline correctly, Snap the parent company Snapchat is reportedly looking into offering its own drone. Everyone from the New York Times to Mashable has jumped on this story, but it looks like it’s not possible to confirm at this point and even if Snap is working on a drone, it doesn’t mean they will actually end up bringing one to market themselves.
But given the fact that Snap has already extended its brand with its Spectacles wearable tech it is a good possibility they are trying to do something. A Snapchat drone would provide a new way for users to interact with each other. But if Snap does go the drone route, they better make the drone small enough to fit in your pocket. Snapchat is all about sharing experiences at a moments notice. Even a medium-sized drones that weight a few pounds (like the Phantom) will not be conducive to this kind of usage.
