Snapchat users are not happy about the new update

12 February 2018

Through another update, Snapchat believes "separating social from media has allowed us to build the best way to communicate with friends and the best way to watch great content - while addressing numerous problems that plague the Internet today". Snapchat is a quite popular app for youth nowadays, and somehow "Streak" is the feature that they used mostly but now it's becoming hard for a user to maintain streaks with friends. If you force quit the app then you're going to be thrown back to the redesigned version the next time you launch it, and Snapchat is working on a fix, so if you don't revert back before they do then you'll have no other choice but to suffer through the redesign (part of the reason behind turning off auto updates). A petition (Change.org petition) is being signed on Twitter has nearly got half a million of signatures from users to "Remove the new Snapchat update".

When people swipe right they can access the "Friends" screen where you watch their stories, see their pictures, chats and group conversations.

But there's now an official website that lets you check out Snap Maps completely app-free.

Interestingly, Snapchat sees this not just as a means of exploring cities but also as a news source.

If you head onto the website, you'll be able to see videos from all around the world, all of which were shared using Snapchat. If you've subscribed to publishers on Snapchat, their Stories will remain on top.

Keep in mind if you try this that deleting Snapchat deletes all of your Memories.

Snapchat says that the Discover section will become "uniquely personalized for you". However, they would still undergo the scrutinisation of Snapchat curators. Once you do, log in and you'll be back to rocking the previous version.

Until now, it's only been possible to view this using the Snapchat app.
