Is Snapchat a Chinese app is a question all of us having these days. Before moving on to the answer I would like to ask does it matter if it is an App from china?
Well, you have been using Snapchat for years now. So why you are searching for this suddenly?
Let me answer this question very short. Snapchat is not originated from China. It is an American App.
History of Snapchat
Snapchat was created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University. For many months, they worked closely together and on 8 July 2011 released Snapchat on the iOS operating system as “Picaboo.” The organization fired Reggie Brown months after it was introduced.
In September 2011 they relaunched Picabook as “Snapchat”. Now it is under a company called Snap Inc. This is an American company founded by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown.

No, It is 100% American Company but…..
