Speaking to Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg at Code Conference this evening, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel said that the company may eventually do away with the requirement to hold a finger down on the display to view snaps. Additionally, when pressed about an Apple Watch app, Spiegel says that the company has waited to approach the platform with a unique experience.

As reported by Re/Code, Spiegel says that the need to hold a finger to the display to view snaps was initially to prevent people from taking screenshots. However, that may change in the future:

"I think, for us, it's holding us back from longer videos being watched on our service," Spiegel said onstage. So will that change? Yes, Spiegel said — more or less. "We try not to ruin surprises, but that may be in the cards."

When pressed about a possible Snapchat experience on the Apple Watch, Spiegel says that the company has approached the possibility with caution in order to come up with a unique experience. It's unclear if the company has something in the works at this very moment, but it seems that you may be waiting a while for the Snapchat experience to make its way to your Apple Watch.
