Let’s first understand what is Google Featured Snippets in Search Result Page (SERP)
Featured Snippet is a search result by Google which answers user’s
which kind of questions. Snippet includes
best answers from blog Post,
Post link and
Post Title in addition to
featured image from post.
Idea of featured snippet is to provide best answer to users without leaving the search result page itself. To be honest I like that idea and totally in for it.

very detailed. Should include lots of images and details. I would say, try to follow this rule:
Your article should be easily readable and understandable by novice user. If your article helps others, it will help Google too 🙂 More and more users will come to your site and page ranking will go up.

Once you publish your article, wait for couple of days. If article has best value and interest for users, it will automatically be featured.
For your reference, take a look at other below Crunchify’s articles and
heading/URL which are already featured in Google Search Result Page (SERP).
Over the time, result may get changed and there is no guarantee article will feature all the time.
As a conclusion:
Try to be

optimizeyour content for users, break down contents into
