Snapchat’s Redesign Gets Slammed by Users

Jan 19

Snapchat, the popular video and photo-sharing app, has been having a slew of bad luck recently. In the first quarter of 2017, Snapchat suffered a loss of $2.2 billion in revenue, and just this past September watched millions of users abandon its platform. In an effort to rebound, Snapchat rolled out a redesign aimed at making the site easier to use, encouraging more engagement.  On Thursday, it went live in a few countries including the U.K., Australia, and Canada. However, it still has yet to roll out to its largest market, the U.S.

Unfortunately, Snapchat’s redesign was met with a firestorm of complaints mainly over the merger of the original ‘Stories’ screen with the page that shows individual messages and snaps.  At the moment, app store reviews have been overwhelmingly negative, with around 83 percent of users giving it a score of one or two stars.
