Snapchat has finally brought on board a full-scale version of it revised app for its UK-based users.
Because of this update, many Snapchat users were outraged and disappointed.
On Twitter, an Arabic hashtag of Snapchat's update went viral in Saudi Arabia after the update was launched this month.
Unfortunately, if you've already had the new Snapchat update installed on your phone, there's not much we can do to help. 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. Most of this new activity is being driven by USA users, though the largest petition against the Snapchat redesign was started on January 10 by a user in Australia, a Change.org spokesman told PCMag.
Hollywood loves Snapchat, for a reason: Users of the service account for 50 percent of all movie ticket sales in the U.S. What's more, movies that are being advertised on Snapchat see a raise in awareness of as much as a 39%, according to data Snapchat's corporate parent Snap Inc. shared with Variety this week.
Snapchat braced users for the big update, and a spokesperson said: "Updates as big as this one can take a little getting used to, but we hope the community will enjoy it once they settle in". Click the Applications tab, then select Apps in the iTunes sidebar, and find Snapchat (or the app you want reinstall in iTunes' Apps list). They can download to an older version of Snapchat via iTunes.
You can also turn off auto-update just for Snapchat, specifically. Many started sharing links and tips to restore the old version. Although you can remove them from the feed by clicking on the "See less like this" option, users complained that it gets certain people more coverage to gain more followers they don't necessarily deserve. Now you have to download a File Explorer app on your Android device to locate the Snapchat APK in the Download folder.
Saudis are ranked one of the world's most beloved fans of Snapchat and consider it an essential platform to gain information and share stories. But first, delete the new version on your iPhone (by pressing the app's icon for several seconds and then tapping the X in the corner). Hit the Install button and sync your device.
