Snapchat Users Furious Over Latest Automatic Update

The app's major redesign has finally reached the U.S., and some people hate it. Petition website Change.org said more than 30 petitions have been launched in the last day protesting the new Snapchat update and asking developer Snap to change the app back to the way it was before.

Another Twitter user said: "I'm contemplating deleting Snapchat because of the update that I didn't even want".

When you install the update, Snapchat will be split in two.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said the redesign would make "our application simpler and easier to use".

Custom Snapchat Lenses and Filters are only available on iOS devices in the U.S. right now, but Snap said that it'll be available globally and on Android soon. But users are not happy with the redesign. You can't really "undo" app updates - unless you're an Android whiz, managed to keep the APK of the old version on a secondary device, and then are able to manually extract it and flash it back to your primary device.

The application still opens to the camera like earlier. The Stories page that allows you to post pictures and videos has been removed. For instance, swiping left reveals a Friends page that lets you see your chats with friends, but also all of their Snapchat 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. It means you'll no longer have to scroll through the Chats to find the right person. The company hopes people will enjoy this once they get used to it. Here's a breakdown of all the changes, and how to use the new version of Snapchat. You might be one of them.

"An update as big as this one can take a little getting used to, but we hope you'll enjoy it once you settle in", a spokesperson said, the words often repeated in numerous replies Snapchat Support has tweeted. You can disable all auto updates by heading to the Play Store, firing up the main menu, and then hitting Settings.

Actress Amber Frank wrote: "The new Snapchat update is more complicated than trying to turn on your friend's shower".

You can also turn off auto-update just for Snapchat, specifically.

You can make custom Lenses and Filters on either on a computer (via Snapchat's website) or phone (via the app).

On an iPhone, open the Settings app, swipe up until you find iTunes & App Store, and then toggle the Updates icon to offer in the Automatic Downloads section.
