Snapchat overhauls Discover and now lets you subscribe to channels

Snapchat has received a bit of a facelift in its latest update — at least for the app's Discovery page. After updating, you'll notice that the Discover section no longer simply lists each publisher on a grid of nondescript circles. Rather, the Discovery section now shows headlines and images related to the stories, giving users some context for what to expect before jumping in.

In another big change, you can also now subscribe to individual Discover channels, allowing you to more easily keep up with the channels you care about. Of course, there's more in this update to look forward to as well; here's the full official rundown:

  • Stories and Discover have a new look. See what's inside before you tap!
  • When you finish an edition in Discover, swipe up to Subscribe so you never miss an update! Subscriptions appear below your friends' Stories.
  • Tap the navigation buttons at the bottom to jump between screens.

Once updated, you'll also notice some slight design tweaks, new icons and color changes around the app which overall make the app look a little tidier. If you'd like to check out all that's new, be sure to give Snapchat a download from Google Play (opens in new tab) now!
