Imgur’s Snapchat-style GIF collections come to Android

by John_A

Imgur’s bid to bring Snapchat-like Stories to the GIF world is no loner confined to iOS. It’s releasing an updated Android app that brings Snacks and the Feed to a wider array of devices. Snacks, as before, lives under the search tab and gives you a curated Story-style gallery of GIFs you can sit back and watch when you’re looking to be entertained. The Feed, meanwhile, sits in your home section and lets you follow both Imgur users and tags to keep up with the latest GIF trends.

The addition will feel a little late given how long iOS users have had Snacks, but it’s an important part of Imgur’s strategy. Along with social features like chat, Imgur is giving you reasons to keep coming back to its app besides those occasional times you’re hoping to find the latest dank meme. It’s clearly not trying to become a full-fledged social network, but it’s betting that having enough similar features will make you feel more at home.
