Popular photo-sharing platform Snapchat reached 280 million daily active users (DAUs) in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 51 million or 22 percent year over year, and it now has more users on Android than iOS.

CEO Evan Spiegel called the moment Android users overtook iOS users a “critical milestone that reflects the long-term value of the investment we made to rebuild our Android application,” in his prepared remarks today.

“The number of Snapchatters engaging daily with our augmented reality Lenses grew more than 40 per cent year-over-year in Q1 2021. Over 260 million Snapchatters engaged with Valentine’s Day Lenses over a two-week period. Lunar New Year Lenses reached over 125 million users,” the company informed.
