Snapchat users are not happy about the new update

The new redesign merges the friend messages with their stories.

Through another update, Snapchat believes "separating social from media has allowed us to build the best way to communicate with friends and the best way to watch great content - while addressing numerous problems that plague the Internet today". They involve deleting the app, turning off automatic updates for it and then downloading it once again. Because of the update, it has lost many of its loyal users. The new changes haven't arrived for Android users as yet. You'll see "Complete" on this page when you're good to go.

Snap Maps lets you find Snap Stories from around the world, using a virtual map.

As you're probably already aware, Snapchat recently released a massive 2018 update - and it hasn't gone down well.

Log-in and you are back with the old version but not for a long time. This section was previously exclusive to chats on Snapchats.


That means anyone in the world can now access Snap Maps, even if they don't have a Snapchat account.

Also to post your own Story, the user will need to tap the Snapchat logo in the top-left corner of the main screen, you now need to swipe left on the main screen.

You'll also be able to see coloured "heat" spots, showcasing places where lots of Snapchatters are sharing content from.

However, in the case of the Snapchat redesign, Mashable discovered there's a tiny bit of a workaround if you have an iPhone... at least for now. Based on the algorithm of your Snapchat usage, it will show you related Stories.

Until now, it's only been possible to view this using the Snapchat app. Here's what to try if you want to get rid of the new Snapchat and revert to the old version. A petition (Change.org petition) is being signed on Twitter has nearly got half a million of signatures from users to "Remove the new Snapchat update". However, doing so will delete all your Memories saved on Snapchat.
