The app is the closest thing to hanging out together IRL. It's the best group video chat and screen sharing app. By turning screen sharing on you can see the same thing at the same time, just like if you were sitting next to each other in real life.
Together you can watch Stories, respond to DMs/messages, look at or edit photos, watch videos, listen to music, play games or shop. With Squad you can screen share any app -- opening up a whole new way to hang out with friends.
- Toggle between video chat and screen sharing.
- Group video chat with up to 9 people at once.
- Add / invite friends to join your squad.
- One tap to join video hangouts with friends.
- Share you're free to hang out with custom stickers that you can share to your Snapchat Stories.

Ratings and Reviews
Very good app
Very good app as the 4 and 5 star reviews already said. Good video quality and very little lagging, maybe 1-2 seconds. I was on the same wifi network. Thank you for the great app. For those 1 star reviews, which complained about being forced to share contacts, as the developer said, you can opt out by following these steps: tab "Enable Contacts" button--notice that there is no option to skip here. Tab "Don't Allow" at the next popup, it should then take you back to the previous Enable Contacts screen. Now, you should see "Skip" below the blue "Enable Contacts" button. I found it worked for version 1.2.11.
Very good with minor problems
I a agree with the previous rater that Squad has great potential beyond social media. In addition to academia, it can be used by real estate agents to show details of listings without their clients going to the agent’s office. Repair people may find it useful.
The phone and split-screen functions work quickly and well. The phone function appears to work quicker than FaceTime. Setting up a view of the caller’s screen is easy.
I have a problem moving between views on my side of the app. But that’s minor.
Great App, With Drawbacks
This app is amazing! I love the ability to share my screen through video call. On the other hand, It is very slow when you do. It makes the shared screen pixelated and laggy. It’s also heated up my phone a bit and drains the battery like crazy. I’m sure that this will improve as new versions come out, so I’ll keep using it for now! Anything the developers can do to make the video call and screen sharing a simpler process for the phone would launch this app’s quality forward a lot.
Developer Response ,
We are constantly working to make it better, so thanks for sticking around! Live group video is a hard problem but we think it's worth the work to have friends & family be able to connect all over the world. <3 Thanks for being with us on this journey!
