Google Reportedly Building Its Own Snapchat Competitor

Everything old, or not really that old, is new again in Silicon Valley. According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, Google is working on its answer to Snapchat. It’s called Stamp — a portmanteau of “stories” and “AMP,” the acronym for Accelerated Mobile Pages, Google’s quick-loading web articles — and you could be seeing it as early as next week, sources with intel on the project told WSJ. The new platform would be similar to Snapchat’s Discover feature, where publishers create and share made-for-Snapchat (or repurposed-for-Snapchat) content.
