Deeper Data Insights through Braze’s Expanded Partnership with Snowflake and New Retention Reports
Through this expanded partnership, brands using Braze and Snowflake across additional geographies can better understand the behaviors that drive customer engagement and campaign effectiveness. Augmenting Braze with integrated cloud data platform Snowflake enables brands to have in-the-moment access to granular user and engagement data faster and easier than ever before. Additional joint customers of the two companies can now extend Braze data into Snowflake without hassle or maintenance, ultimately creating a more unified view of the customer.
With Retention Reports, marketers can also now understand user behavior over time for each and every campaign natively within the Braze dashboard. This feature allows marketers to visualize campaigns’ impact on retention with two simple steps—no data team needed.

Seamless Cross-Channel Orchestration with Updates to Canvas and Content Cards
Braze is offering customers more opportunities than ever to extend reach beyond traditional targeting means. Using the Audience Sync to Facebook feature, brands can use their first-party data to inform advertising strategies in real-time. Using this automated Canvas step, marketers can now elect to sync their own users’ data from Braze directly to Facebook via Custom Audiences.
Marketers can also extend outreach to customers not yet subscribed to email or opted into push notifications by weaving Content Cards, persistent content delivered within an app or web experience, into their customer journeys. What’s more, marketers have the ability to prove the impact of specific Content Cards using A/B testing against a control group.This fosters experimentation by enabling marketers to measure the effectiveness of each Content Card campaign against a set of users who don’t receive a message.
New MMS Support and Partnership with Movable Ink to Enhance Personalized Visuals
To boost engagement and enable brands to send dynamic mobile messages, Braze now offers multimedia messaging service (MMS) support, helping brands communicate with attention-grabbing messages enriched with pictures, GIFs, and more.
In addition, Braze’s partnership with leading visual experience platform Movable Ink makes it possible to dynamically incorporate vivid and creative content in real-time across additional channels like email, push, or in-app messages.
