It seems like Snapchat has finally listened to its users and reverted back to its old format.
The photo and video chat app changed its layout earlier this year much to the dismay of the entire world.
The new update seems to have put direct snaps back on the left hand screen as you swipe across with 'stories' and celebrity feeds back on the right, albeit with a slightly different layout.
Since then Instagram stories has seen a sharp increase in users especially influencers who had before relied on snapchat to talk to their audiences.
Both moves led to dramatic drops in the platform's shares and according to techcrunch.com, the user count started to shrink in March.
In a statement, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel talked about the reversal of the redesign’s worst part:
"We learned that combining watching Stories and communicating with friends into the same place made it harder to optimize for both competing behaviors. "
He added: "We are currently rolling out an update to address this by sorting communication by recency and moving Stories from friends to the right side of the application, while maintaining the structural changes we have made around separating friends from creators and sorting friends’ Stories by relationships.
Whether it was the drop in shares or the decrease in users, we're glad Snapchat decided to change back.
