After a beta test of self-destructing videos for the Android version of Snapchat, the app has rolled out the feature to everyone. The newly updated app is now available from the Google Play Store and includes the ability to send videos that will self-destruct after viewing, a feature the iOS version has had since December.

Making Snapchat video for Android has been exciting, but has also had its fair share of challenges. The Android phones that many of us use were never designed with Snapchat in mind, and that can be tough when developing a hardware-based application. The video feeds and playback behavior can differ greatly - often with no guarantees or warnings.

We would like to remind users that there are bugs present in both Snapchat and Poke that allow users to save the video without any warning to the sender. These applications are designed for fun and for people with good intentions and should not be used for anything that you can not afford to have possibly get out.
