Snapchat daily users drop again

Snapchat has lost two million daily active users over the last quarter.

For the second time in a row, the photo sharing app has seen its figures fall from the previous quarter, as the most recent clocked 186 million users logging in compared to 188 million in the previous.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegal told analysts during a conference call that the drop has come from Android users.

Although it appears the company has put a focus on the iOS version of the app, the Android edition is said to be getting an update - although there's no firm date for its release.

As reported by CNET, Spiegal said: "The Android community represents a global growth opportunity for us and we are making good progress testing the application in select markets. We look forward to rolling it out when it's ready."

The first decline in daily active users was reported in August, and Spiegal put the blame on an unpopular resign.

However, it should also be noted that the app is facing competition from Instagran, which has a similar feature that lets users post their videos and photos before they vanish after 24 hours.

The company is expecting the numbers to continue its decline in the fourth quarter.
