Photo sharing app Snapchat has unveiled its latest major redesign, offering users two separate pages for social media and news content.
Previously, the app's Discover page - which displays news taken from popular media outlets such as Buzzfeed and The Sun - has been displayed along the user's contact list.
However, many people said this made the app look cluttered, and Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel responded by promising to make the app easier to use.
As CNBC reports, earlier this month, the tech billionaire pledged to develop a new version of the app that uses a news feed similar to Facebook and Twitter.
To access chats, stories and messages from contacts, users now have to swipe left. And to to view content from publishers, they swipe left instead.
As opposed to scrolling horizontally to go through news articles, users are now able to do so vertically. This is very much like Facebook's and Twitter's news feeds.
"The new Discover page to the right of the camera includes Stories from publishers, creators, and the community. Your subscriptions live at the top, followed by other Stories you might be interested in watching," the firm explained.
"Over time, Discover will become uniquely personalized for you. While the Stories on Discover are personalized algorithmically, our curators review and approve everything that gets promoted on the page.
"We believe that this balance of human review and machine personalization provides the best content experience on mobile.
Snapchat has also made some changes to the Snap Map, which was unveiled in the summer to mixed response. Now, users can access it through the search function.
Many users have branded the app complicated to use, and this update is aimed at improving customer satisfaction. Snap, which owns the app, said it'll make the update available to a "small percentage" of users at first.
"While blurring the lines between professional content creators and your friends has been an interesting Internet experiment, it has also produced some strange side-effects (like fake news) and made us feel like we have to perform for our friends rather than just express ourselves," the firm said.
"We've all had the frustrating experience of scrolling endlessly through our Chats to find the right person — now your Friends will be listed in the order that you want to talk to them," Snap said."
