The VR technology and gadgets like goggles can be integrated with the Snapchat services to come up with the unmatched ideas. Snapchat also will be able to put some money in its R&D department to provide an innovative AR equipped assistance to the Google.

In Spite of the offer that is double the market cap value of the company and interests from the leading tech giant the CEO, Evan Spiegel won't change his mind. The CEO is known for taking a risk and not listening to the others. Both the founders of the company have configured the voting right to give them full authority of the Snapchat's fate and direction. In case other board members think that $30 billion is a better choice right now yet there is nothing in their hand.
