Snapchat Gets Much Faster With New Android Update

Chief among the improvements is the speeds and interaction time between the app and user.

In comparison to its Apple iOS counterpart, Snapchat for Android has often presented many issues from its sluggish performance to a range of app-breaking bugs.

CEO Evan Spiegel has been promising a complete rebuild of the much-maligned Snapchat Android app for what seems like an eternity - or since 2017, to be precise.

With Snapchat's expansion into short film and video game territories, Android users would be forgiven for feeling as though the company had forgotten about them in recent months.

One difference between the Android and iOS cases was that while hackers were able to put their Android apps straight into the Google Play Store, they needed to use the Apple Developer Enterprise Programme to bypass Apple's tightly controlled App Store.

Snapchat's experience on Android has always been subpar compared to its iOS sibling. In terms of iOS platform, Apple only covers some iPhone models but in terms of Android, it is supported to a variety of phones having a different processor, RAM and other specifications making it harder for developers to accommodate the eco-system on every device. Android Authority interviewed some senior Snapchat officials who said that it's "an entire rewrite from the ground up" that is tested on a more varied selection of Android devices than before.

"[Android devices] don't all behave the exact same way, right?"

Apart from tweaks in the performance, there are no changes done in the UI of the app. Also, if you like our efforts, consider sharing this story with your friends, this will encourage us to bring more exciting updates for you.
