Snapchat, fresh off a redesign that managed to piss off just about the entirety of its user base, is reportedly getting ready to introduce a new feature that no one (except its stockholders) has been asking for: unskippable advertisements.

iPhone X owners who still use Snapchat are in for a pleasant surprise today. The camera company, famously annihilated by Rihanna after it approved an ad mocking domestic violence victims, is finally releasing its previously-announced lenses designed for the iPhone X. The feature was teased nearly seven months ago, so it's about time.
Social-media monarch Kylie Jenner - a longtime Snapchat power user and arguably one of the most important trendsetters on there - suggested this week she may be done with the app, which is bad news for a company that has already seen numerous users get mad online (but more importantly maybe reduce their engagement) over a recent redesign.
People love to complain about app updates before eventually accepting the change and forgetting what the previous iteration was like altogether. But so far that is not the case with the latest Snapchat update. Some users are furious over the app's "disruptive" redesign - and rightfully so, it's a goddamn mess - and the amount of signatures on a Change.org petition signals just how many people are tepidly losing their crap over it. The online petition, as of today, has surpassed one million signatures and counting.
