You can also request an Uber or Lyft ride, or reserve a table through OpenTable, Resy, or Bookatable right from Context Cards.

You can now learn more about what you see on Snapchat without asking your friedns (Picture: Snapchat)What information will be available on Context Cards?

These include Snaps tagged with the white, venue-specific, geofilters or that have been submitted to the firm's public "our story" collections, which appear in snap map or search.

Context Cards will bring additional information to Snapchat with a single swipe and it's already working with several partners, also including Foursquare, Michelin and Goop.




In a new post to the Snapchat blog, the company outlines just what it is that these Context Cards do.

The Context Cards displayed vary depending on the type of venue and the details available about the location.

Not all of the services and information will display at once for every location, but Snap says the idea is to create a personalized feed that's relevant to what each user might need at the time. Context Cards won't be limited to single Snaps either, as Snapchat is integrating them into Stories as well. Launching today is a new feature called "Context Cards", which will offer extra information on the Snaps that you look at. For a peek at how Context Cards work, check out the video below. Context Cards seem to go hand-in-hand with Snapchat Maps, and indeed, those who use Maps will probably get a lot of use out of Context Cards as well.

The Snapchat Support page on Twitter has admitted that its users had complained of having issues with the app, and that they were looking into the problem.
