But the real opportunity is for Snapchat to become the most unique and fun way to share from special occasions. After that, you'll see an option to disable automatic app updates. Also, swiping right from the camera now reveals a redesigned "Discover" page, where you'll see Stories from publishers, creators, and the community. Most of this new activity is being driven by USA users, though the largest petition against the Snapchat redesign was started on January 10 by a user in Australia, a Change.org spokesman told PCMag.
