How To Revert The Snapchat App Back To The Pre-Redesign Version

How To Revert The Snapchat App Back To The Pre-Redesign Version

As of now, Snapchat users are not feeling the redesign and that might push them into the arms of Instagram which isn't ideal but it's IG stories feature is gaining popularity. But, the latest update has removed the Stories feed-which features content posted by our friends, celebs, and publishers-entirely.

Thousands of users took to Twitter to vent their anger about the update with people calling it "vile, ugly, horrendous, disgusting and the worst thing Snapchat has ever done".

Tech Advisor has provided these useful guidelines to Android users looking to downgrade to an older version. The Friends page uses an algorithm to show you the list of people you like to chat with the most. What is is really drawing the ire from the app's young users is the redesigns is the confusion it brought resulting in them losing their streaks.

"It's very possible that once they get used to the new way the app is laid out, they will use it just as heavily as before".

And bang, like evil wizard magic, you'll have the "old one" back. If you want to hang onto those, go into the Settings menu of Snapchat followed by Memories and the Backup Progress to make sure you have everything. Following the update, the app physically separates instant videos, pictures, and messages sent by your friends from those delivered by media, brands, and celebrities. The app has ticked off its most loyal users with its latest redesignwhich merges your friends' snap messages with their Stories. The Stories pane, on the other hand, has been replaced with the already-unpopular Discover page, which is essentially used exclusively for displaying stories from promoted brands and friends who the user hasn't started a conversation with. While users are annoyed by the redesign, a Snapchat spokesperson told that it is a huge update and it would require "a little getting used to".

From the sounds of it, Snapchat has no intent to go back to its old ways. If you want, you can also turn off Auto-update for specific apps. Would you keep using the app then?
