Bloke's Petition To Reverse Snapchat Update Goes Viral

Bloke's Petition To Reverse Snapchat Update Goes Viral

As Snapchat isn't the first (and won't be the last) app to force an unwanted, irreversible update on its users, this is the option we recommend.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said the redesign would make "our application simpler and easier to use".

Also, as far as we can tell, this method is only working for iOS. But users are not happy with the redesign.

The Snapchat Support Twitter account has been busy replying to complaints from users, some of whom are threatening to delete the app unless they can get the old version of Snapchat back.

Snapchat still opens to the camera like before, but most of the other features have been shuffled around. The Stories page that allows you to post pictures and videos has been removed.

To view your friend's Stories you will need to go to the newly created Friends page, which you can access when you swipe right after opening up the app. Click on the "Learn More" button under the Lenses or Filters feature, depending on which one you want.source Snapchat Clicking on that button will bring you to a page that looks like this.

"We've all had the frustrating experience of scrolling endlessly through our Chats to find the right person - now your friends will be listed in the order that you want to talk to them", Snapchat added. The company hopes people will enjoy this once they get used to it. The free Lens Studio launched in December for more technically savvy creators to build 3D visuals like Snapchat's popular dancing hot dog; today, the studio will let users choose from at least 150 templates for custom Lenses, which you can personalize with text and emoji fairly quickly. You might be one of them.

If you haven't received the new update and want to avoid the million steps it takes to downgrade Snapchat once the update does arrive on your device, do yourself a favour and turn off automatic updates now (or, you could suck it up and embrace the new design).

"This petition aims to help convince Snap change the app back to the basics, before this new 2018 update".

SnapChat is pushing on with its controversial new update.

Alternatively, you can navigate to Snapchat's page in the Play Store, hit the menu icon (which consists of three vertical dots), and then deactivate automatic updates for Snapchat specifically.

Uninstall the new update on your phone, plug it into a PC and drop the Snapchat APK you've just retrieved from your old device into the Download folder.

How to downgrade Snapchat on Android? If you (or someone you know) have an older version of Snapchat running on another device, you can extract the APK (Android application package) file from the /data/app/ folder.
