Users 'Extremely' Disappointed on Latest Snapchat Update

Reuters  Dado Ruvic Snapchat users were outraged after an update caused the Snapchat template to be

Snapchat's interface update has rolled up to more users overnight and the majority appear to be unsure over the social app's new direction.

Reuters/Dado RuvicSnapchat users were outraged after an update caused the Snapchat template to be "extremely difficult" to navigate and use.

As part of the redesign, Snapchat has added a few other changes. Amid fierce competition from Instagram, the company has also fixed tons of bugs in its app to enhance the user experience. Some users jokingly asked who were the ones in charge of the Snapchat update and who were responsible for the design.

It mixed up the flow of accounts you follow by dividing up your friends from "public figures" on opposite sides. The Friends page uses an algorithm to show you the list of people you like to chat with the most. Also, swiping right from the camera now reveals a redesigned "Discover" page, where you'll see Stories from publishers, creators, and the community.

And finally, the Snap Map will now appear on the Discover page in Search.

Why Tesla, Inc. Stock Fell Thursday

While users are annoyed by the redesign, a Snapchat spokesperson told The Sun that it is a huge update and it would require "a little getting used to".

Now, plug your device into a PC, then - using Windows Explorer (File Explorer) - drop the older APK file into a new folder or the Download folder.

Feedback from Snapchat users on Twitter has been overwhelmingly negative. You can't really "undo" app updates - unless you're an Android whiz, managed to keep the APK of the old version on a secondary device, and then are able to manually extract it and flash it back to your primary device.

Unlike Android users, you can't disable auto-update for individual apps. Most of the features were shuffled around, causing confusion among most of the app users.

In response, Snapchat has branched into hardware for the first time with its video-enabled Spectacles, though so far those devices have failed to sell as hoped. If you want, you can also turn off Auto-update for specific apps. This prevents any unnecessary updates such as the Snapchat one. Then go to this link and download an older version of the app. Google may warn you that you are installing an app from an unknown source, allow the installation anyway. Now tap on the X in the top-left corner to delete the app.
