What to know about Snapchat’s Spotlight feature
The Spotlight feature on Snapchat is a dedicated tab in the Snapchat app (the last tab on the right) for promoting short viral videos from the Snapchat community, much like TikTok.
But unlike TikTok, your Spotlight video won’t have a comments section, and other users won’t be able to see your display name unless you are 18 and older and have a public profile.
