More than a million users have signed a petition since the latest Snapchat update to get the social company to revert the changes.
The new Snapchat update, tested for several months and launched officially in February 2018, has sparked quite a controversy among users, to the point that “annoyed” Snapchatters created a petition on Change.org. It has now exceeded one million signatures.
With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more difficult.
The initiator of the Petition has stated on his page that a lot of users have complained that the new update has made the App more complicated.
There is a general level of annoyance among users and many have decided to use a VPN app, or are using other risky apps or steps, to go back to the old Snapchat as that’s how annoying this new update has become.
The tips are popping up to help users find the old version by downloading it from alternative app stores for Android devices, Or using a VPN to connect from a region that has not yet been targeted by the update.
But what are the main issues after the Snapchat update?
First, the conversations are no longer sorted chronologically, but rather contacts you speak to more frequently will be displayed at the top. However he main complaint is the combination of messages and stories into a single page which left many Snapchatters very confused.
The other issue is the Discover’s section, which now mixes stories of your friends with that of famous personalities, and they are visible even if you did not choose to follow them.
