How to use the new Snapchat update

Snapchat App Geofilers

The Friends panel is also now ordered based on an algorithm that works out who you like to chat with the most.

Chats and Stories from your friends can be viewed by swiping left, while Stories from "publishers, creators and the community" can be viewed on Discover by swiping to the right.

Here's to hoping Snapchat hears the internet's cries! Unfortunately, there is no easy way to downgrade the app once it's been upgraded on your device, though there is a workaround, which we'll explain in a bit. If you'd like to learn more about that, keep reading. Before looking at ways to go back to the old Snapchat design, let's first see what the update brings.

How to downgrade Snapchat on Android?

The Metro has similar steps for Android - start by finding the installation file for the previous update online using the name, version number and APK. You can grab Snapchat's APK file from the /data/app/folder. The simplest way is to uninstall the latest version of Snapchat from your device.

You'll then need to download an Android File Explorer app to find the file on your phone, which you can then install. Yet, in addition, the Snapchat Stories will also be available there.

Yeah. We told you it wasn't easy.

If you own an iPhone or iPad, you can download the older version of Snapchat via iTunes.

The Children's Health Insurance Program got a four-year extension, and community health centers will see funding increases.

Or you could just embrace the change.

Now connect your iPhone to your Windows or Mac computer, open iTunes and select your device.

Find Snapchat in iTunes' Apps list then hit Install and sync your device. The version you have stored in iTunes will copy over to your iPhone. The app has updated automatically for most, but if you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't have automatic updates and are curious to see what the hype is all about you'll have to install the update yourself.

From the main menu, tap Settings. The best way to prevent this update is to simply turn off the automatic app updates in the smartphone's settings. Go to Snapchat's page on the Play Store, tap the menu button, and disable Auto-update for Snapchat.

Snapchat users are not impressed with the new update to the Snapchat application. After that, you'll see an option to disable automatic app updates. But you can for all apps. There, under the "Automatic Downloads" header, you'll see a series of toggles.
