Photo messaging app Snapchat has been spotted by testing the new redesign on Android that the company plans to introduce shortly.
An engineer Jane Manchun Wong discovered that the Android app of Snapchat hides a rugged alpha version of the innovation with an experience more similar to the iOS version, reported Engadget Sunday and also quoted XDA developers.
"The new faster Android user interface (UI) from Snapchat is underway, it is generally smoother than the old one." Emoji brush also comes for Android to the new user interface! " Wong tweeted.
Since the new version is reportedly in the alpha test phase, it is still very rough at the edges with missing controls and errors to be resolved. However, the camera app still captures screenshots instead of direct photos.
A look into the future improvements of Snapchat suggests a clean interface and smooth app operation.
Snapchat was severely criticized for the redesign of the app launched last year, making the interface relatively complicated and drastically reducing the user base of the app for sending photos.
The company then rolled back the redesign and went to the older one.
