Snapchat's rebuilt Android app has better performance and improves your favorite features

The new app is 25pc smaller, opens 20pc faster on average, and is modularised for more efficient, ongoing innovation by the company. This updated number is still 1 million people short of Snapchat's peak user base since it went public in 2017, but this is still good news for Snap.

Snap said on Tuesday that the number of daily active Snapchat users rose to 190 million in the first quarter from 186 million in the prior period, but remained below the 191 million it had a year earlier. "This month we announced several new products that we believe will drive further engagement and monetization".

The improvement in Android performance most crucially relates to India, a nation of 1.37 billion consumers, and now Instagram's second-biggest market.

Snapchat started rolling out its rebuilt app for Android-and many of us were quite impressed.

Snapchat founder, Evan Spiegel, remarked that their Snap app has more reach to 13 to 34 year-olds in the United States of America than Instagram. The app's youth reach is largely unmatched, and remains a key selling point for Spiegel and Co. - even with the increased competition from Instagram, Snap has been able to maintain its allure with younger audiences, a big tick in its favor.

For the second quarter, Snap said it expects revenue of $335 million to $360 million.

European ARPU declined, which is a concern, though again, Snap would be hoping that its improved Android app will help, especially in the "Rest of the World" category.

Revenue also slowed down on the previous record quarter, standing at 320 million dollars (£247 million), compared with 390 million dollars (£301 million) in the final three months of 2018. For our Android community, that means improvements across the app - including updates to Lenses, Stories, taking Snaps, and more! It now offers more than 450 premium content channels worldwide.

A renewed focus on original content with 50 new shows launched throughout the quarter provided Snap with a much-needed boost to keep it riding high, after a similar upbeat surprise for analysts in February. "In Q1, almost half of our daily Discover viewers watched Discover every day of the week", Spiegel said.
