Here’s when Snapchat’s massive redesign is going to land

Snap Inc. CEO Evan Spiegel revealed on Tuesday that the firm’s working on a redesigned, easier-to-use version of its Snapchat application – and now we know when it will arrive.

According to information obtained by Business Insider, the biggest redesign in Snapchat’s history will land on Monday, December 4. But that’s not all. The publication also received details about the overhaul itself.

If you were to open the Snapchat application now, you’d find all of your message threads located to the left of the camera and your contact’s Stories to the right, alongside crowdsourced videos and content from publishing partners.

The update, however, will move all of your contact’s Stories to the left, leaving the right free for an “endless” feed of algorithmically-generated content lifted from celebrities, publishing partners and the firm’s Our Stories feature.

Introduced back in 2015, Our Stories was designed to provide Snapchat users with a way to view content from people nearby. It was first available at major events, before launching at popular locations – like shopping centres – in 2016.

If the aforementioned release date is, in fact, correct, we can expect to see the rebuilt Android application Spiegel announced the firm is working on hit the Play Store by the end of the month. Nothing’s set in stone, though.
