The new Snapchat update has redefined the meaning of Snapchat. Many of Snapchat’s users are asking for an ‘un-update’ because the new update is just not cutting it.

“Ok, so the new Snapchat update is really bad. It makes me want to not watch stories and it is very confusing to navigate,” says Lisa Ponti, 8th grader.

The new snapchat update has separated the social from the media. This means that the stories from your friends appear on the left side along with your chats and the stories from publishers, creators, and the community are on the right. This has caused some confusion with what time people’s stories had been sent and if it is a private snap or their story.

There was also news for Bitmoji Deluxe- “a new style that includes hundreds of new ways to customize your Bitmoji” is what the Snapchat Team is calling it. This, on the other hand, has had more of a positive response.

The ‘Bitmoji Deluxe’ includes additional skin tones, hairstyles, hair colors, facial features, accessories and much more. There is also a new feature where you can take a quick selfie snap of your face and Bitmoji does the best it can to replicate your features!

“The new bitmojis are lit and look like me more than they used to and it has more emo hairstyles,” said Myles Ratliff, 8th grader.
