Editors’ Choice

From its humble origin as a fun way to send self-erasing photo messages, Snapchat has grown into one of our favorite social media apps. And not just for the hilarious face filters and cool geographical photo tags. It’s become one of the best ways to share memories, maintain friendships, and stay up to date on news and views from our go-to websites.

Love it but it’s just getting worse

I’ve had Snapchat for so long now and all these new updates are getting out of hand. For one I know I’m not the only one that says this the new bitmojis and all the changes to make them look more realistic is honestly gross looking. Everyone I know and I always hear others talk abt how awful it looks because quite frankly it makes EVERYONE look awful, less realistic to their actual selves, and overall dumb. Also the new ai feature that NO BODY can get rid of unless you get snap+ isn’t fair. Not every person wants to have an ai bot spying on them. Personally I think Snapchat needs to have a feature to choose what bitmoji look you want to have like the hyper realistic one can be for the ones who want it. I also think that you should be able to not have ai. Now I’m not saying some people don’t like the ai but not everyone does so everyone should have the option not to have it. Let’s not forget that the games we had but got rid of because of the bitmoji. Me personally I want them back I loved playing them with my friends. Although I can say I wish there also was more hair options since there’s never one that looks like me. Thank you for listening and I hope you will take the opportunity to give us back our old bitmojis and not the weird looking ones.

New avatars are horrific

I generally like snapchat, the features it has is great, but the recent change of the avatars/bitmojis whatever they’re called now … Not Good 😀

It makes the faces look distorted and horrific, I didn’t mind the change to 3D that we got last time but the actual models were fine.. now they aren’t. I’ve genuinely considered taking mine down because I can’t get it to look right at all and using different poses doesn’t even help because it just distorts the face and makes the mouths especially really small. Plus the noses look so off and strange on the faces now, it’s ridiculous. It’s just really off putting ?? I feel like y’all could’ve still made improvements to customization while still keeping the previous 3D models.. But the changes made recently are terrible and definitely effects the quality of it overall.

I’m more generous than others with the 2 stars I see because a lot of people aren’t happy with the new avatar changes. Like I said, the app itself is fine but this is a major change to the bitmojis that I personally really don’t enjoy and I hope there’s enough feedback that the devs can change it back. I’m all for better customization options, but not if it badly affects the quality of how the avatar actually looks. It’s giving me the same vibes as the Facebook/Instagram avatars which just look… tragic.. and I’d hate to see that change in snapchat, but unfortunately the avatars do look pretty tragic right now.
