Did Snapchat remove games?

Yes, Snapchat has removed the games feature on the app. In reply to a tweet on February 7, the company confirmed: “Games and Minis are no longer available. We’ll be bringing more focus to other Snapchat products and features that will be beneficial to creators and content viewers.”

Going to the ‘Games on Snapchat’ page on their website now leads to a message that reads, “Important: Games are no longer available.”
