People are not happy with Snapchat's update, and it's clear the app won't be reversing back to the app we knew and loved anytime soon. Snapchat's CEO Evan Spiegel says they are “excited about what we are seeing so far” with the redesign and first reactions from users.
As Variety reports, the CEO said that although people are asking (and begging) the app to reverse to its old ways, he explains that “their philosophy” is being supported.
For example, some people are complaining that they can't see stories from celebrities they were following alongside the same stories as their friends. But, that's because “they're not your friends.”
Their goal was to make things easier and simpler to use in an effort to “reinvigorate” Snapchat's user growth.
“We’ve been thinking about the redesign for a really long time,” Spiegel said, Variety reports.
And although their “philosophy” might be enforced, that won't change people's anger towards the update. It's about “user experience,” right?
And while there's a way to get rid of that terrible Snapchat update, the app itself has no plans for a permanent reversal.
