Snapchat's new redesign fixes everything you hated about the 2018 update

Consumer sentiment toward Snapchat drops following redesign

Snapchat user growth slows as it reports financial results

Snapchat has caved in to demands to reinstate the old Snapchat look.

In the new design, snaps and chats are aligned chronologically and "Stories" from friends have been moved back to the right-hand side of the camera screen.

Snapchat has caved to its users and put stories back where they used to be, on the right hand window.

After the service announced and then began introducing a large-scale redesign of its app late a year ago, more than a million people signed a petition calling for the app to switch back.

Snap has announced that it has begun rolling out a redesign to its Snapchat app to the "majority" of iOS users.

"We learned that combining watching Stories and communicating with friends into the same place made it harder to optimize for both competing behaviors", said Spiegel during the call.

The update also made users swipe right to see chums" snaps and stories on a new "Friends' page, rather than swiping left. Although very popular among its predominantly young user base, it has stalled in its growth.

The latest changes actually go a long way toward restoring peace and tranquility for subscribers of the messaging app.

Satisfaction levels for the app among current users aged 18-34 has followed a similar trajectory.

More than a million people signed a petition calling for the 2018 Snapchat update to be reversed, and it appears that the company has finally made a decision to act. In response to the petition, Snap assured users that, "We hear you, and appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you feel". We completely understand the new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many'.

But even this latest compromise does not appear to have appeased all the app's users, with many taking to social media to vent at yet another change.
