If you are like many social media users in the United States, you have likely seen Twitter and Facebook posts about the new Snapchat Update. Most people hate it while others are just interested to see what it looks like. So, is there any way to get the latest Snapchat Update on February 6th, 2018? Is there a way to trigger it so your iPhone or Android will update?
At this point, we know that you cannot download the latest version of Snapchat to cause the update. If you have the latest version of Snapchat from the App Store or Google Play, the latest update is already on your phone, but Snapchat has to “release” it.
We have learned that a small portion of iPhone and Android users in the United States are seeing the “New Snapchat” on February 6th, 2018. This update rolled out in Australia first, then the United Kingdom and Canada. Now, Americans are starting to see the new Snapchat.
The biggest change is the fact that there is no longer a Stories screen. To find the stories of your friends, you have to use the Friends screen where you used to send private chats, texts and pictures. This is a huge inconvenience and has users very mad.
At this point, you are going to have to wait it out and hope that you are in the next batch of users that Snapchat updates for the latest interface. If you take the advice and knowledge of others, there is a good chance you do not want it.
