How to Avoid Snapchat's New Update Thats Irking Snap Users

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said the redesign would make "our application simpler and easier to use". It has already gained more than 110,000 signatures, all the while, Snapchat's rating in the iTunes app store has plummeted from a almost 4.0 to a 2.7 as disgruntled users give it a single-star rating. But users are not happy with the redesign.

One SnapChat fan tweeted: "Just randomly updated even though I didn't want the update, sorry but it's really annoying please bring back the old Snapchat!"

Snapchat also features users' own Story under their profile page, instead of on top of friends' Stories. It's also now arranged in light of what Snapchat thinks will be the most relevant content for you, based on what you click on.

"We've all had the frustrating experience of scrolling endlessly through our Chats to find the right person - now your friends will be listed in the order that you want to talk to them".

These have been moved to the new Friends page, where they sit alongside regular Snaps and messages. The company hopes people will enjoy this once they get used to it.

"Many "new features" are useless or defeats the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years". You might be one of them.

But if you haven't got it then you can prevent the update by turning off automatic app updates on your phone.

Download a file explorer app on your Android device, locate the Snapchat APK in your Download folder within the app - and then tap it to launch the file and install the app. You can disable all auto updates by heading to the Play Store, firing up the main menu, and then hitting Settings.

Siri-us business: Everything you need to know about Apple's new HomePod
Perhaps the biggest issue stems from Siri's inability to recognize your voice apart from others. At times , not only did HomePod respond, but so did Siri on my nearby iPhone.

However, once the update has settled, things are expected to return to normal as users settle into the new way of things. Once you do that, uninstall the newer version of the app.

In theory, if you never force quit the app, you'll have the old app forever. You can also allow installation of apps from unknown sources by going to Settings Security and then toggle on Unknown sources.

Android smartphone users can revert to the previous design by installing an older APK of Snapchat.

After you have watched one friend's Story you will automatically see a preview of another friend's, you have the option to view it, or you can choose to skip it by swiping down.

Another added: "For the love of god remove the new update". Copy the older Snapchat APK file that you retrieved from another device into the Download folder. You can grab Snapchat's APK file from the /data/app/folder.

If you own an iPhone or iPad, you can download the older version of Snapchat via iTunes. Then, connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. Don't sync your iPhone yet.

Do not sync your iPhone just yet - but find Apps in the dropdown menu in iTunes.
