Snapchat releases a Rebuild app for Android users

EnlargeLookout

Snapchat has long been known to be problematic on Android, while the iOS version of the app has always enjoyed better functionality.

Social media platform, Snapchat, recently announced that it commenced the rollout of the rebuilt version of its Android application, and the company promises that the latest version of its Android app is much faster compared to earlier iterations of the software.

Though this is definitely a smart move, it's not a guaranteed effort that will bring back the ex-users of Snapchat, especially since both Android and iOS users have been leaving for the past year or so.

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.

The revamped version of Snapchat is now available on Google Playstore.

The new app has been under development for over a year, because attempts to modify the old app code to improve performance were unsuccessful. It's very easy for us to build an Android app that will work well on flagship devices like the Pixel 3.

Launched 5 years ago, Snapchat is a popular AR Effects and messaging service used by Millions of people to make amusing photos and more. The Android version of the app had gained root access to the phones of hundreds of victims - so developers could read Wi-Fi passwords and users' emails as well as data from apps like Facebook, Gmail, WhatsApp, Viber, and WeChat.

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