How to Hide Snapchat Discover section and Live events - Snapchat Updates

This post is specially created on How to Hide Snapchat Discover section to help our readers with the new updates. Snapchat one of the hottest social networking app on the planet at the moment is making users freaking out over a new updates. Snapchat is taking some drastic steps to make sure you know about Discover,  the special section where chosen media partners (and Snapchat itself) post content for the app's millions of users. Snapchat on July 13,2015 updated its app with a redesigned Discover and Live Stories screen that sandwiches a very prominent shortcut to Discover partners right on top of the stories page.

Snapchat is trying hard to justify the $19 billion value being slapped on the company by private investors. In order to promote the Discover section, and get more hits for its media partners, Snapchat has made this drastic change and moved Discover to the top of the Stories section. Previously, Snapchatters would have had to click on a separate page in order to access the Discover content.

Depending on how you feel about Discover, the change could be somewhat annoying. The old Discover section is still around, so it's now in two places — with no way for users to toggle off the new (smarter) placement. It very much feels like Snapchat is trying to force this on users.

Snapchat Updates Receives Negative Feedback

Since its update, the app has received nearly 67,000 one-star reviews in Apple's App Store, criticizing the decision to place Discover and live events above other people's individual snap stories. The feedback is so negative that Snapchat's average review rating in the App Store has dropped from two-in-a-half to one-in-a-half stars.  And the last couple of updates don't seem to be making things better for the Snapchat team.

Snapchat Updates has causes problems on the phone

According to reviews and complaints on the app's page and various forums the latest Snapchat update delivers more than just a new look, the app drains the battery life for many iPhone and Android phone users. There are also complaints about about data usage and and memory consumption.
