7. Get a peace of mind with Snapchat’s brand new in-app meditation experience

Snapchat Mini Headspace Meditation Launch

The popular social media app just launched a collaboration with Headspace as one of the first apps in Snapchat Minis, an in-app community offering unique bite-sized experiences to users. Through their survey during the Movement Control Movement, their data found that 72 per cent of Malaysian Snapchatters’ top concern is the health of their loved ones. As over half of them have been using Snapchat to stay connected with friends and family, the platform decided to take one step further in the aid of mental health.

The new Headspace Mini experience will provide Snapchatters with expert resources related to emotional and physical well-being, daily meditation practices, mindfulness exercises and new tools to send positive messages to give their loved ones a pick-me-up.
