Snapchat just grew for the first time in a year

Is it too soon to call this a turnaround? Maybe, but things are starting to look up for Snap.

The company just reported its results for the first quarter of 2019 and delivered investors some long overdue good news: Snapchat added new users for the first time in a year.

The app now counts 190 million daily active users (DAUs), up from 186 million last quarter. Overall, DAUs are still down from its previous peak of 191 million, but the new growth suggests the company has been able to reverse the momentum caused by an unpopular redesign last year.

$Snap results are in and Snapchat just had its first quarter of growth in a year (though DAUs are still slightly down from Q1 '18)
