Snapchat passes the 500 million downloads milestone on Android

Shortly after Snap went public at a valuation of $24 billion, the Android version of Snapchat crossed the 500 million downloads mark on Google Play.

In spite of the latest achievement, however, everybody's favorite image messaging app remains more popular on iOS devices. Still, the company promises that more efforts will be put toward improving the Android version of Snapchat, as it still lags behind its iOS counterpart on multiple counts.

On a semi-related note, riding the wave of recent successes, Snap last month made its camera-equipped spectacles available for purchase online. Up until then, the gimmicky/fashionable shades were only available in Snap's pop-up store in New York. Learn more about them here.
