Why Did My Snapchat Automatically Change in December 2017?

In mid December 2017, iPhone (iOS) users are finally starting to report they are seeing the “New Snapchat”. This update is automatic in that it is not updated through the App Store or Google Play Store. If you have updated your smartphone to the latest version of Snapchat, the “New Snapchat” is already on your phone, Snapchat simply needs to release it to you. This means there is nothing you can do to stop it.

The first reports of iPhone users getting the “New Snapchat” were on December 13th and December 14th. Most stated they saw the “New Snapchat” and it went away shortly after. This has been happening with Android users for about a week now.

Snapchat is making this release a complete disaster. They announced the “New Snapchat” on November 29th, 2017 and have very slowly rolled it out. Those that do have it hate it and those that haven’t been able to try it are completely confused as to what is going on.

Have you seen the “New Snapchat”? What phone and operating system are you currently using?
