Home » Snapchat will not be released for Windows Phone

Snapchat was released back in September 2011 and is currently available for Android and iOS. With it, you are able to send ephemeral messages, videos and photos to your friends, adding filters, stickers and whatever else you like to add to spice things up. Unfortunately, the application has not been released for Windows Phone and most likely won’t be ported over to Windows 10 mobile.

At one point, the Snapchat app was actually working in Windows 10 Mobile thanks to an unofficial application that allowed users to log into their accounts. This application was developed by Rudy Huyn,  one of the most known developers of Windows Phone applications.

Huyn said that we should never trust support as they never know for sure if an application is coming to an operating system. He added that he’s been working on some top applications for Microsoft and support is always the last to know about such information.

The developer is most likely right as Microsoft Support doesn’t have this type of information. In addition, Dona Sarkar, the head of the Windows Insider program, said a few days ago that she didn’t know about a Snapchat application being developed for Windows smartphones.

Are you using Snapchat on your Android or iOS device? Do you hope that Snapchat will be finally released for Windows smartphones?
