Snapchat’s new update frustrates you? Why would Snapchat go ahead and try to fix something that is not broken or just change the layout of a perfectly good application to something that you’ll hate without giving you the possibility to keep the old version? In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to get old Snapchat back on your device.
Updated Snapchat Layout
So, why Snapchat made this update is because they are focusing more on their brand influencers. Basically, on the old layout usually when you want to watch your friend’s story there would be promoted ads from Snapchat all around the page but no one would really click on it because you are only on that page to watch your friend’s story but in this new update Snapchat dedicated that whole page for those ads so that Snapchat can make more revenue out of it.
I don’t blame Snapchat but I’m complaining that they didn’t correctly implement this and had completely screwed up the layout of the app.
How to get old Snapchat on Android
- First of all, Uninstall the current Snapchat app from your android smartphone.
- One way you can go back to a previous version of the Snapchat app is to install the older version of the application.
Download old Snapchat apk from here:
- Scroll down on that page and find the version you want, download install and voila, you got old Snapchat back.
How to get old Snapchat on iPhone
- First, uninstall the Snapchat application from your iPhone.
- Then, download the app valley on your device.
You can go ahead and download the free version by clicking on it.
- Then, click on the install button when you get prompted from the notification. Once you click the install button simply, go back to the home screen and wait for installing the application.
- Launch the application but few users will get an untrusted developer notification.
To solve this is by Go to Settings > General > Profiles > App Valley
then, simply click Trust the profile.
Now, go back to the application app valley.
- You are at homepage, now search snapchat++ on the search bar and install the application.
This app will install as similarly as you guys install an app from the iOs app store.
(This is tweaked version of Snapchat and there is no other way to really get older Snapchat back. There was also VPN method but Snapchat has patched that method)
- Now, go back to the home screen and you will notice that Snapchat application is installing on your device.
- Once it is downloaded and installed, simply launch the Snapchat application up and sign in with your account details.
- Enjoy! Now you can see that your Snapchat layout is looking the same as earlier.
