Snap CEO: New Android OS promising, will 'take time to impact metrics'
Snap CEO Evan Spiegel says: "As of the end of Q1, our new Android application is available to everyone. Compared to the prior version, it is 25% smaller, opens 20% faster on average, and is modularized to allow for efficient ongoing innovation. On some of the lowest-performing devices, this resulted in a 6 percent increase in the number of people sending Snaps within the first week of upgrading to the new Android build. While these early results are promising, improvements in performance and new user retention will take time to compound and meaningfully impact our top-line metrics. There are billions of Android devices in the world that now have access to an improved Snapchat experience, and we look forward to being able to grow our Snapchat community in new markets.Reference Link
