Snapchat Released All-New Android App

Snapchat finally rolls out its completely rebuilt Android app 2019/04/09 6:17am PDT 13

This rebuild app will be faster and less buggy than the original app which was launched back in 2012. The company first tried to simply patch its way out of the issues with the old app, but eventually realised that it would have to rewrite the Android version from scratch to achieve the results the company wanted.

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. The app was similar to one that was previously detected on and infecting some Android devices, named Exodus (and composed of two stages termed Exodus One and Exodus Two).

The new update doesn't add a whole tonne of new features to the app but it has enough substance to consider it an update to the app. Version 1.5.0 brings "Various performance and usability improvements implemented, including changing the button display position".

As Android Authority relates in an interview with members of Snapchat's development team, the rewrite has been in the works for a while.


San Francisco: Immediately after spyware-maker Connexxa's infamous app "Assistenza SIM" was caught abusing the iOS enterprise certificate to bypass Apples App Store guidelines, the iPhone-maker revoked its enterprise certificate, making it un-installable on iOS devices. The Snapchat has become more than just a photo or message sharing app over the past few years.

Android users finally have a new, improved version of the snapchat app available to download.

According to the good people at XDA, the layout and UI of the redesigned version Snapchat looks identical and seems to remain unchanged.
