Last week, Snapchat released a huge update to users in the UK, which saw the layout of the app completely overhauled.
Many users have been unhappy with the update, in which the Friends, Discover and Stories sections were all given a makeover.
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.”
But despite this, a petition has been started on change.org, titled ‘Remove the new Snapchat update’ – and it’s already gained a lot of attention.
The petition, which was started by Nic Ramsey, has been signed by 947,783 people (at time of publishing).
Several people who signed the petition left comments with their reasoning.
Felicia Ene said: “Horrible update. Everything is messy and keeps moving around. NOT COOL!”
And Trinity Jordan wrote: “I can’t figure out where anything is so I never want to go on it anymore this is so stupid.”
Mirror Online has contacted Snapchat for comment.
If you’re really struggling to get your head round the new version, the good news is that there is a way to downgrade to the old version.
For iOS users, delete the app on your iPhone, then connect your iPhone to your computer.
Open iTunes and select your device. But instead of syncing, click the Applications tab.
Select ‘Apps’ in the iTunes sidebar, and find Snapchat in the list.
Select the option to “Install” and then sync your device.
The old version you have backed up in iTunes will copy back to your iPhone.
For Android users, Tech Advisor has provided guidelines on how to downgrade to an older version.
Firstly, find the installation file for the previous update, by searching the web for the app name, version number and APK.
Once you have the file, uninstall the newer version of Snapchat from your device, and then copy the older APK file to your phone using Windows Explorer.
Then, you’ll need to download an Android File Explorer app to find the file on your device, at which point you can install it.
