Restore back the old Snapchat UI design (APK Download)

Snapchat users around the world have not warmly welcomed Snapchat’s new design of its app. More than 180+ million Snapchat users are upset about the new design changes that the developers have brought and users even took it to a public petition site, which immediately received more than a million signs, to revert to the good old Snapchat UI, which is what everyone preferred.

The new design was beta tested back in November to early December 2017, and now the final stable version is rolling out for the users first from the UK, US, and Ireland. But after a pale response from the audience, the developer definitely needs to figure out what to do next. Till then if you’re annoyed with this design overhaul, which many Snapchatters complain being too much cluttered and one can miss a story easily in this mess.What you can do is restore back to the previous version which had the right old design, until Snapchat figures out something. And in this post, we take a look at how to get the old Snapchat design.
