As spotted by Matt Rappaport and reported by TechCrunch, Snapchat is now testing the ability for users to tag other users within Snaps by including their username in a text field.
Snapchat is taking inspiration from Instagram for its latest feature.
In statements to TechCrunch, Snapchat says that it removed the GIF and temporarily halted its integration with Giphy "while we wait for Giphy's team to take a look at it", while Instagram say that it's done the same.
For now, tagging seems to be appearing on the app for some users. The tag is not static though - tapping on it will open a menu where you'll be able to send a friend request or message to the tagged user.
The feature also allows you to include the tagged person's Bitmoji and a QR code button that lets other users follow them.
If you tag someone in a post, you will get a notification saying that someone has 'mentioned you in their Story'. However, this has not stopped the popular social media application from labouring over new and exciting updates for the widely used photo and video sharing platform.
Earlier this year, both Instagram and Snapchat added Giphy integration to their stories, allowing their users to add GIFs from a library right to their stories.
Tapping on the username prompts a pop-up that will take them to that profile.
