Snap[1] is a software deployment and package management for Linux available at least since 2015 [2] with support for channels[3] and parallel installs [4].

Snaps are basically an application compiled together with its dependencies and libraries – providing a sandboxed environment for the application to run. These are easier and faster to install, can receive latest updates and is confined from the OS and other apps.
