Snaps allow you to add features and functionality to your MetaMask wallet. Individual Snaps are unique applications created by third-party developers, which you can install into MetaMask, allowing you to connect to blockchain networks beyond Ethereum, adding support for transaction insights, as well as introducing notifications.
MetaMask Snaps lets you personalize your MetaMask experience according to how you see fit. Let’s dive in!
Note: Currently, MetaMask Snaps is only available for the MetaMask browser extension v11.0 and up.
Seek out your Snap
The first step is to find the ideal Snap for your needs. There are two ways to install a Snap; through third-party dapps, or the MetaMask Snaps Directory.
Dapps can directly prompt you to install their accompanying Snap. For example, you might visit your favorite DeFi protocol’s dashboard, which prompts you to install their Snap, allowing them to send relevant notifications directly to your MetaMask instance about an order being filled.
Eager to know which dapps have already created a Snap? Luckily, the MetaMask Snaps Directory is here to help you explore further.
Via the MetaMask Snaps Directory
The easiest way to find new Snaps is by going to the MetaMask Snaps Directory, your one-stop shop for exploring new Snaps.
