Snapchat is moving quickly to bring its incredibly popular messaging app to Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Before consumers even get their hands on the device, the company is today releasing Snapchat Micro, which can stealthily capture stills using the 1.4-megapixel camera on Samsung's wearable device. As always, you'll choose a time limit before sending your photos off to friends, and Snapchat is also incorporating support for the Galaxy Note and Samsung's other recent devices if you want to add a drawing or caption. Speaking to TechCrunch, founder Evan Spiegel said, “Our team is constantly looking at ways to reduce the time between our experience of a moment and our ability to share it." Snapchat is "really excited" about its new "experiment" on Samsung's Galaxy Gear.
