Snapchat Beta for Android Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

Now you can finally become an Alpha tester for the Snapchat app for Android even if you don't have a rooted device or if you were not lucky to get a server-side feature rollout.

How to enable Snapchat Aplpha:

  1. Pinch to zoom and open Snapmap
  2. Search for "Bermuda"
  3. See a walking ghost on top of the Bermuda island
  4. Tap on the ghost to see an option to enable Snapchat Alpha.

Previously, it was possible to enable Snapchat Alpha via the "root method" and in the same place, you can also find some info about the Alpha UI changes. Later after release, Snapchat Alpha switch was shown to some users directly in the settings menu.

This Snapmap easter egg way is very Snapchattish. Did you manage to catch this ghost?
