Snapchat Rolls Back Redesign on iOS App

May 15, 2018

Snapchat has rolled back the design on the Snapchat iOS app following a ton of criticism directed at the new redesign. This comes after the company announced that the financial growth of Snapchat in Q1 2018, was anything but great news. Since there was little financial growth going on, the company decided that it was best to roll back the design it had made to the iOS app.

The CEO, Evan Spiegel, said people would get used to the design changes released a while ago. It appears that the user base has complained long enough and hard enough for the CEO to understand that is not going to happen. We have all of the latest news about the design rollback on the iOS Snapchat app.

Snapchat iOS App Rolls Back New Redesign Changes

If you load up the Snapchat app on your iOS device, you will notice that the redesign has been rolled back. Many people had complained about the design changes that hit the iOS app, and negative reviews were flooding the App Store page. While the CEO thought people would get used to the changes, it appears the company was financially hit as a result of the bad changes. Since the financial growth was unimpressive for Q1 2018, Snap has decided to revert back to the old design.

This means that you will now see the right-hand part of the screen is where the conversations are located. That is where the location was before the horrible redesign, so they are back to the old location. You will also notice that your chats and your snaps are all in chronological order once again. They will be in order from this past week and onward, which is once again how things were before the redesign changes. This is definitely good news that things are going back to how they used to be on Snapchat, because the users hated the way things were after the redesign.

Snapchat Redesign Changes Reversed & New Features on iOS

As far as the redesign goes, the company said the revert back to the old will allow you to more easily and quickly see the Stories you want. Stores from your friends are now on the right side of the app, which is great news. The chats will be in chronological order, which means you can find the most recent conversations you had without hassle. The company finally figured out that combining these things made it too hard for people to quickly communicate with friends and family.

Beyond the redesign being reverted back on iOS, you will also find some new features on the Snapchat iOS app. There is a new subscriptions feed that you will see when you load up the app. This subscriptions feed allows you quickly follow creators, publishers, and can help you even follow shows you watch.

The new feature is definitely going to be useful because you will be able to follow the people or things you want without spending too long searching for it. When it comes to the structural changes that were previously made to Snapchat, those will still be present. Those changes included separating groups such as friends and creators that you would like to follow.
