Snapchat’s new logo update is forcing people to uninstall the app

Snapchat recently updated its logo in which they drew a thicker outline around the ghost. Though the platform did not make an announcement about it but soon after it was released, users have been criticizing the new change on social media.

The new logo was introduced in last week’s update, and users have been openly backlashing the company on Twitter. Many are comparing the thick outline with the Comic Sans font and finding it uncomfortable and aggressive.



People are calling Snapchat attention seeker for introducing weird updates now and then.

When the company was asked to comment on the new logo, it responded saying that the bold outline makes the logo more prominent and attention-grabbing.

The CEO of the platform, Evan Spiegel, designed the logo of Snapchat, also known as ‘Ghostface Chillah.’

Some of the users are so angry that they are threating to delete the app because of the disturbing logo. One of the users expressed an opinion on Twitter, calling it the ‘most hideous icon update ever.”

Many of the users are leaving negative remarks on the App Store for the Snapchat app as well. Data of Sensor Tower, a mobile analytics firm shows that since 8th August around 300 reviews on the US App Store have pointed out the logo or icon of Snapchat.

Reviews include all kind of ugly expressions describing the logo, while some users said that the logo looks like it was designed for Android device. One of the users said he has been using the app from last three years but never thought of leaving a review, but this time he was forced to say that it seems three years old drew the logo with a magic marker.


According to Sensor Tower’s data, around 70% of the ratings of the app are either one-star or two-star.

Since the release of a much-disliked Android version of Snapchat, it is the first time that app is facing severe criticism from users. However, the last time app launched an update for Android in April with changes like an improved camera.
