Some of the Android users also reported that on the crashing of the app, they were getting alerts on their phone, “Snapchat keeps stopping." The alert was followed by the option to close the app or send feedback.

On last Tuesday, Snapchat announced some new ways that will help the users to find and apply more lenses in the app that the company has created over the previous six months. The update was named as  "Lens Explorer" and was initially available for the iOS users only.
