Snap has a new message for all the Snapchat redesign haters

Snap has a new message for all the Snapchat redesign haters”

A petition on, urging Snapchat to remove the update, pulled in 1.2 million signs forcing Snapchat to release an official statement basically telling all users to suck it up because the update will become "easier" to use.

However, some Snapchat users were exhausted of seeing stories and Snaps with the temperature on them. After the recent objection of Snapchat redesign, the company has made a decision to bring some changes in design. The company tries to reassure users that the new Snapchat will adapt to them over time, and it also teased a new feature coming soon for iOS and Android that will make it easier to customize your own personal Snapchat with tabs for the Friends and Discover sections of the app. The new feature, introduced in partnership with Giphy, is similar to the one recently added to Instagram Stories last month.

Snap responded to the petition on Wednesday, saying, "We hear you, and appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you feel".

The company then goes on to explain why the redesign is actually a good thing - if only Snapchatters will give themselves the chance to get used to the changes.

Animated GIFs are now available in the latest Snapchat update on iOS and Android. However, CEO Evan Spiegel announced that the redesign of the social media app would not be rolled back. "The complaints we're seeing reinforce the philosophy. We completely understand the new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many", the company wrote on, in response to the petition. Although many users joined groups on the platform opposing the new layout, Facebook did not change it back. Moreover, the new updates bring two new tabs: Friends and Discover. This same personalisation is also true of the new Discover, which will adapt to you the more that you use it.

Users will be able to sort Stories, group chats, and subscriptions, to enable "further customization of the app".
