The Snapchat that already has 2.75 millions of users in Argentina is now betting on the features of the new Android version released to attract more clients in Argentina.

3- Colombia

This is another country with great potential to be a fast-growing market for Snapchat in Latin America. For now, the app already has 2.85 million of active users in the country, and the company is also counting with Android’s new version to keep increasing audience in Colombia.

2- Brazil

Snapchat’s app had already experienced a significant recovery in Brazil with the release of new masks. On the week of May 12th, the app that lately had been struggling to stay in the top 20 most downloaded apps in the Google Play store, has now reached the first position. But the company still has a challenging route ahead to get their audience back. Although the app has 9.9 million users in the country, a lot of them still use Snapchat’s masks to create content and publish it on Instagram. It will be a challenging battle.

1- México
