Snapchat update adds GIF stickers and some design changes

Some users even tweeted at the Snapchat Support account to ask how to use the feature in the redesigned app because they couldn't find it. It has received more than 1.2 million signatures. Users can get this in the Sticker Picker tab.

"We hear you, and appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you feel", it reads. "We completely understand the new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many", the company wrote on Change.org, in response to the petition.

In the coming week, Snapchat is rolling out new tabs on the Friends and Discover pages. Additional details about how the update will work are unclear.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel recently reiterated the company's commitment to stick with the new design in an appearance at a Goldman Sachs investor event, where he told critics that they were proving the company right. The new layout was meant to simplify things for users, bringing stories, group chats, and subscriptions all into one place, unfortunately, they missed the mark.

The app previously featured content from friends, publishers and celebrities on one page. However, this feature is also now available to iOS users only Android Users have to wait a little more to avail this feature.

A couple of weeks ago, Snapchat woke up to a flood of netizens criticizing the platform for a design change it had introduced. "These adjustments to our products will continue over the next few quarters as we continue to optimize the application", Spiegel said on a recent earnings call.

Following the redesign's U.S. debut, more than 30 Change.org petitions were launched in a single day protesting it. Users are complaining that the Snapchat is "too over complicated" now, that it's harder to find their friends in the app, and that some contacts aren't even showing up. "Exactly. They're not your friend".

Now Snapchat has responded, making clear that it recognises the anger but won't change. In 2008, Facebook dramatically redesigned its site, sparking backlash. "How about you quit telling us what you think we'll like and change it back to the way you know we all like", wrote another.
