To @Android. Love, Snapchat. This has even become a meme on Twitter and the likes where people roast how bad the experience on Android is. The risk arising from disguised carrier assistance app is that, once it is installed, the software can copy the iPhone user's contacts, audio recordings, photos, videos and together with other device information such as real-time location data. The company's developers had finally made a decision to rebuild the Snapchat app entirely from the beginning, and that is supposedly the only way to address the underlying problems of the Android Snapchat app.

While the new Snapchat update is being rolled out, Snap Inc. did not provide a specific timeline about it.

Snapchat organized its first partner summit to discuss the company's new approach toward competition from apps such as Instagram.

This is the company's latest effort to stablise Snapchat's user base, which has in turn helped to secure Snap shares.

So this prompted them to do something dramatic.

While Apple yanked the offending app's enterprise certificate, which stopped it from running, this does highlight that the firm may need to better police how it divvies out such certificates to developers that might not be as keen on producing legit apps as they say they are. The biggest problem was to let Snapchat use the hardware to its fullest potential on every Android smartphone. But in 2018, Staffs of Snapchat discovered that their Android app always tries to run the code in the background making it a bit laggy.

Snapchat representatives have revealed to Android Authority that this is an entire from-the-ground-up rework of the application that has been tested on a plethora of Android devices.
