Snapchat now has more users on Android than iOS

Snap has finally benefited from the creation of an Android version that is completely functional. In its quarterly report, the company revealed today that its user base uses Android rather than iOS. This cumulative user base is also growing. Snapchat achieved a total of 280 million daily active users during the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 22 percent over the year.

CEO Evan Spiegel today, in his remarks on the long-term importance of the investment we made with a view to updating our Android app, named the moment when android users overtook iOS users a critical milestone. In order to remember the introduction of Snapchat only on iOS, the first Android app was introduced in 2012. The team spent more than a year restoring the app to match its iOS equivalent. Snapchat was bled by Android users as the Android app languished. The final update of the app was launched in 2019 to make it more workable and open to global users.

According to the company, its growth has also stimulated investment in foreign material. In addition to his efforts to boost language support and localization, Spiegel highlighted the company's Snap original launch in India in March.

Interestingly, new social apps, particularly Clubhouse, continue to run on iOS in the first place and sacrifice the possible Android market locally and internationally. If something is to be taken off the income of Snap this year, Android users won't be able to sleep there.
