FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Snapchat, Inc. Releases Version of the App for Android Phones

 

Pacific Palisades, Calif. (October 29, 2012) – The popular Snapchat app is now available in for Android phones. The creators of Snapchat have created a unique app that is completely different from the version used by on the iPhone, and are proud and excited for Android owners to join their millions of friends who are already on Snapchat.

“With all of the different devices, each with different camera hardware, it’s tough to develop an app that works really well for every user, but we’ve done it,” said Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel. “We started by rebuilding the camera layer from the ground up, then we developed a new, ultra-fast way to send images and load them in the feed, and combined that with a buttery smooth custom interface. We couldn’t be more excited to bring you a truly first-class Android app.”

The app, like the version for the iPhone, is available for free download in the Google Play store.
