Snapchat's redesign was meant to simplify the app for new users, and was first launched in select markets in late 2017.
GIF stickers can be added by tapping the Sticker icon and using the search bar. "With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more hard", the petition read.
Now, when you are searching for stickers, you'll be able to access the "endless" library of GIFs from GIPHY and unique animated stickers made by Snapchat team. After you take a snap, go to the Stickers button in the toolbar. Instead, it told critics to keep using the app for personalization features to kick in.
As with Instagram, the stickers can also be pinned to a part of the snap to have them move, rotate or scale along with what they're attached to.
The redesign is aimed to make the popular app "easier to use", as CEO Evan Spiegel put it, by creating a starker separation between content from friends and publishers in its Discover tab. This is a notable reversal of the typical pattern we've seen of Instagram cloning Snapchat features, but it's a good one for users since GIF stickers for Stories are basically the greatest thing ever invented on social media.
It has now been signed by more than 1.2 million people, and is still growing quickly.
Snap Inc. has responded to a widely-signed petition demanding it roll-back an unpopular redesign of its Snapchat mobile apps for iPhone and Android. Along with the new design changes, the update will also include a new way to filter friends with active Stories, Group Chats, and Subscriptions. After the recent objection of Snapchat redesign, the company has made a decision to bring some changes in design.
