Snapchat has updated the design of their app, to create a bigger emphasis on your friends and the content that you love.
When you go to the left of the camera, you’ll see a new dynamic “Friends” page. Here is where you’ll see the friends you talk to most along with their Stories, their Bitmojis and Chats and your friendship with them.
To the right of the camera, the Discover page has been redesigned, where you can view Stories from publishers, creators and the community (such as Snap Map, Search and Our Stories). The new Discover page is full-screen and scrolls vertically, compared to a horizontal scroll before.
In 2018, Snapchat will provide creators on Snapchat with a more “rewarding experience that includes better distribution and monetization opportunities.”
The new update will be viewable by a small percentage of users this week, with a wider rollout in the coming weeks.
