Facing an overwhelmingly negative response, Snapchat recently announced it will be reworking its interface following the rollout of its latest redesign.

It has been no secret how users feel about the current look of the app, as a drop in users and plummeting stock is plaguing the company. The social media platform will begin testing an update that once again places celebrity stories alongside stories from users’ friends. Snapchat released a statement which seems to reference users like Kylie Jenner who have publicly stopped using the app.

“We are always listening to our community and will continue to test updates that we hope will give Snapchatters the best possible experience on our platform.”
