    The update is trash. I used to follow several people just for their stories but now they have disappeared. Stop forcing me to subscribe to random users on the discover page.

    Literally do not care about anyone on snap chat except my real friends so why should the explore page even be there. It was the worst addition to snap chat and every one of my friends agrees!
    Feels like an update just to make snap chat more money through sponsored advertised accounts. Understand they need to make money but this definitely doesn’t please the majority.
    Me and many friends + co workers have deleted the app and probably wont use it going forward unless they make another update to fix it.

    Completely hate the new snapchat update
    The old update was perfectly fine
    It was organized and not confusing
    This new update doesn’t really allow people to enjoy Snapchat as much and when it comes to the stories everything is mixed up
    They show people’s stories that I’m not even subscribed too
    I mean if I wanted to see they’re stories I would add them
    Please bring back the old snapchat and just leave it as it is
    Snapchats layout does not need to be changed
    No one will enjoy snapchat if u don’t take this update down soon

    It’s only temporary, but if you download and activate x-vpn and then go and take a photo and send it to anyone. Then turn the VPN off and close all tabs it goes back to the old format

    I’ve lost all my streaks because of this stupid update. I’m so mad and annoyed that you have done this snapchat! You’ve gone from my favourite app to the worst and hardest to use. Bring back the old Snapchat before you screw up big time.

    Hate the new update on snapchat im not even interested to view the stories or even use snapchat at all. Make it go back tk normal

    Download a free app called X-VPN and press connect. One connected go to Snapchat and send a random photo to anyone then double click the home button and swipe it away. When you go back into Snapchat it should have reverted back to the previous version. Note: this is for iPhone users only and it doesn’t work on anything past the iPhone 7plus..

    does anybody reckon that snapchat will change it back they have gotten this much bad response cause i hate the update so much and want the old one back

    I just got the new update…it is total bullshit! They have totally homogenised the product. I loved it for being a real space to connect and have fun with my actual real life friends…I don’t care about following fake pretenders or people I don’t personally know…otherwise I would do Instagram….now you are exactly the same!!! 🤬 I want to scream because something I really enjoyed using in today’s saturated market of social media has now been totally destroyed. Who thought this was a great idea? At least let us users have the option to choose if we want to keep using it or not. Here’s to hoping they see sense and reverse it before I reverse my decision to use Snapchat.

    this update is utter trash, like i get that they’re trying and i respect that but the fact of the mater is that the old snapchat was way better, and they tried a little too hard on this one, the update before this was was great in my opinion so i don’t get why this one was necessary, if its not broken dont fix it

  14. Annemarie

    Hey everyone so what I did was give a 1 star review on the App Store and I’m not the only one Bc the rates are dropping I can’t figure out how to delete it off iPhone but it made me feel better plus I’m complaining on every site I see. eventually If the reviews go low enough they’ll have to do something Bc they will look bad. Please participate

    Why? I dont even need to swipe right anymore, and i gotta scroll through an endless list to find a previous story? How is this practical..whoever introduced this UI, needs to sit and have a chat with his conciousness..also one more thing can you not put the fucking purple notification on my “story page” (should honestly be called discovery page) it’s distracting snd im never gonna swipe right anyways..probably you should reconsider this update since the majority hate it including everyone i know
