Snapchat Users Are Not Loving the App Update

The new Snapchat app has been redesigned but this time the photo-sharing app could not grab the attention of the users.

But the real opportunity is for Snapchat to become the most unique and fun way to share from special occasions.

The update contains an nearly completely reconfigured system, removing and replacing some of the traditional designs the app has featured for over a decade. And to manage your own stories, you now have to tap the Snapchat logo to access the camera and to see your story views and deleted snaps.

Syrian opposition-held Eastern Ghouta suffers bloodiest week since 2015
The siege has created a dire humanitarian situation, in which access to food and vital medical supplies are very limited. Yesterday, February 7, an estimated 36 civilians were killed in air raids.

Snapchat's recent update has ruffled a few feathers, hasn't it? Here's how to turn off automatic Snapchat updates and ensure you retain your social media sanity.

"You can think of it as a more sophisticated Best Friends algorithm that makes it easier to find the friends you want to talk to, when you want to talk to them", Snapchat explained. This prevents any unnecessary updates such as the Snapchat one.

These have been moved to the new Friends page, where they sit alongside regular Snaps and messages. While Snapchat users cannot reverse the effects after getting the update, those who still have not upgraded can actually avoid it if they are careful. The Stories page that allows you to post pictures and videos has been removed.

What a true Trump parade would be
Army Grand Parade: President Trump wants to celebrate the troops with a big, attractive military parade through Washington, DC. He now commands Hollywood Post 43 of the American Legion, and he, too, thinks a military parade may not be such a bad idea.

While users are annoyed by the redesign, a Snapchat spokesperson told The Sun that it is a huge update and it would require "a little getting used to". Then they add a custom caption like "Happy Birthday, Josh!" using Snapchat's new fonts we scooped last week, including Brush, Italic, Glow, Gradient, Rainbow, Fancy and Old English.

If your app doesn't automatically update, head to either the App Store (for Apple devices) or Play Store (for Android devices), and install the update from there. The Create-Your-Own-Lens maker is now available in the US on the web and iOS app's settings menu, and will roll out globally and on Android soon. While doing so, the research company found that movies with ads on Snapchat saw a 23% increase in unaided awareness - a box office research metric that refers to consumers being aware of the opening of a movie without being prompted. This will install the older, backed up version to your iPhone, apparently.

In there, select Apps in the sidebar and look for Snapchat, select install and then sync your phone.

Modi addressees his first election rallies in Tripura
The remark belittled the office of the prime minister and was an insult to every woman in the country, Mahila Congress president Sushmita Dev said.

Or you could just embrace the change.
