Snapchat rolls out update
February 8, 2018
Social media app Snapchat has begun a full-scale rollout of a redesigned version in the UK.
The update is intended to separate social interactions with friends from third-party content. Changes to the app’s Discover feature will make it easier for users to find content from publishers, according to Snap.
The update also adds a personalised news feed and an auto-advance feature that takes viewers from one story directly to the next, a Friends Page that brings Stories, Bitmojis and Chats together into one view.
A Snapchat spokesman 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.”
The app currently has 187 million daily users.
