Snapseed, the photo-editing app owned by Google has received its first update since 2018. The update doesn’t bring anything new in terms of features or any significant features, though you get dark theme support now. For almost two years, the app received no new updates which made us believe that Google has forgotten its app. No new capabilities or features were made available to the app in these two years that could enhance the quality of the app in any way.
Now, apart from the dark theme mode, the app has gained some bug fixes, though it’s currently unknown what kind of bugs the update has fixed.
Google has gradually updated its suite of apps and adding the same support to its almost forgotten app isn’t surprising. The dark theme is now supported by almost every app and how can Google’s own app be left out. But seeing Google’s so many apps getting killed, it was feared that Snapseed may meet the same fate. Fortunately, it appears out of danger for now.
According to AndroidPolice and as pointed by a user via Twitter, the update version is 2.19.1 and it is actually the first Snapseed release to come as a 64-bit APK.
Back in late 2017, it was noted that Snapseed had crossed 50M mark and now in 2020, the app has over 100M installs. And this should only grow from here since the app has also positive reviews on Play Store.
Download the app from Play Store if you haven’t yet.
