snapchat rolls out redesign


This was the update that was announced back in November 2017 but is just now rolling out. Unfortunately, this update is not something in which the users are excited about. In fact, many want to go back to the old version of Snapchat. Once you see the new Snapchat on your phone, there is no way to go back.
This is something Snapchat has been explaining on their Snapchat Support Twitter account for months now.

Are you frustrated with the newest version of Snapchat? Do you want to go back to the older version of Snapchat in which there is a dedicated Stories screen?
Uninstalling on Android
Tech Advisor has provided these useful guidelines to Android users looking to downgrade to an older version. One way you can go back to a previous version of an app is to find the installation file for the previous update and install that version. Android uses something called APK (which means Android application package) files for apps. You can search the web for the app name, version number and APK. You should have a copy of the APK files for every version of an app you’ve updated.
If you have a previous version of the app on another device, then you should be able to extract the APK file from it. If your mobile device or tablet is rooted, you can simply obtain the APK file from the /data/app/folder. Once you have the file, you can uninstall the newer version of the app from your device, and then proceed to copy the older APK file you found to the phone or tablet using Windows Explorer (File Explorer). After, copy it to either a new folder, or the Download folder. Then, you’ll need to download or buy an Android File Explorer app to find the file on your Android device, at which point you can tap on it and install it. Android users could also try also download different older versions of Snap from here as an alternative.
Uninstalling on Apple iOS
Apple users could download to an older version via iTunes by following the following steps:
Important – do not update apps in iTunes yet. You’ll be using the old copy of the app that’s still stored in your iTunes library. Delete the app on your iPhone by pressing the app’s icon for several seconds. A small X will appear in the upper lefthand corner. Press the X of the app you want to delete. Press the home button after the app is gone from the screen to get out of delete mode. After, connect your iPhone to your computer. Open iTunes and select your device. However, do not sync at this time. Click the Applications tab. Select ‘Apps’ in the iTunes sidebar. Find the app you want reinstall in iTunes’ Apps list. Select the option to “Install” and sync your device. The version you have backed up in iTunes will copy back to your iPhone. Hopefully, it’ll be the older version.
