Most of us thought Snapchat would update their app to the “New Snapchat” in December 2017. While some Android users and a few iPhone users were updated, most were not. In fact, a large majority of Snapchat users don’t even know what the “New Snapchat” is. That will change quickly when the update rolls out in January 2018. Basically, there is no longer a stories screen and the Discover Section has added celebrity stories.
There are a few other changes, but the main updates are the “Friends Screen” and the “Discover Screen”. We have had many people ask how to find stories now that the latest Snapchat update has been made. The only way you can watch stories is on the Friends Screen which is very frustrating. You have to click individual users in the way that you once chatted with them.
As soon as the update rolls out to all iPhone and iOS users, we will have plenty of resources discussing if you can go back to the old Snapchat and how to find specific features you are used to. How do you feel about the new January 2018 Snapchat Update? Do you want to go back to the old Snapchat where there was a specific screen for your friends’ stories?
