You may have noticed more adults are using Snapchat.

The app may have first gotten popular with young users but a new survey says an increasing number of adults are now using it.

38 percent of mobile users between the ages of 25 and 34 used Snapchat at least once in May. There is also 5 percent more users over the age of 35 than two years ago.

Experts say the increase in adult users hasn't made the app less popular with its core user base.
