4. Has SNAP found it reason?
Millennials are watching news, albeit in smaller bits and bites than their predecessors. That’s good news for “Stay Tuned,” NBC News’ Snapchat show, which was a bit of a gamble when it launched in mid-July.
Since then, the show has attracted more than 30 million viewers -- over 40% of whom watch it at least three days a week, according to fresh internal figures. More than 60% of the show’s audience is under 25, according to a company spokeswoman.
But the news unit isn’t taking its early success on Snapchat for granted. “The team is learning from its first month of shows and updating the look and format,” the spokeswoman said.
“Stay Tuned” streams twice every weekday on Snapchat’s Discover service, and once a day on weekends.
Each episode is roughly two to three minutes in length, with four to five segments per show, covering national and international news, politics and pop culture.
To access “Stay Tuned” on Snapchat, users have to swipe left on the Stories or Discover page, and then tap the show’s tile to begin viewing the latest episode. “Stay Tuned” is powered by a 30-person team, led by executive producer Andrew Springer.
Of course, Snapchat isn’t entirely new territory for NBC. Last August, it launched “The Voice” on Snapchat, followed by E!’s “The Rundown,” “World of Dance” and “Saturday Night Live.”
Snap, of course, could use all the publisher support it can get.

5. Galaxy Note 8 is coming soooon
