Well, Snapchat has done it again. The timer has been removed from Snapchat stories and many users are not happy. In one of the first iterations of Snapchat stories, the timer actually showed the amount of time left on a story. That was removed and there was a circle that counted down with each story. Now, in May 2017, the timer is gone altogether.
When watching Snapchat stories, users now have no clue as to how long the story is going to last or if there is another video or picture coming. In our opinion, this is a very bad move by Snapchat. Users are unable to tell just how long a story is going to last or if they need to continue watching. This is a terrible user experience.
So, is there any way to get it back? Will the old Snapchat timer show back up? We will have to wait and see.
How do you feel about this change? Is it driving you nuts now that Snapchat doesn’t have a timer? Do you want the older timer back?
