Snapchat is reportedly about to redesign a huge part of its app
Snapchat is expected to introduce a redesigned section of its app as soon as next week, according to reports.
The media outlets that Snapchat has chosen to appear in Discover can currently only advertise their channels with small icons that show their logos.
With the new version of Discover, the likes of Vice and Cosmopolitan will have larger, magazine-like tiles “that could give them more ways to show off their content” in the app, according to Digiday. Snapchat will also introduce new Discover partners alongside the redesign, the site notes.
VentureBeat reported that the redesign may be released as soon as Tuesday, June 7. Snapchat declined to comment on the reported changes to Discover.
Discover currently occupies prime real estate in Snapchat’s app above Live Stories and Stories created by friends. Snapchat doesn’t break down exactly how many people use Discover every day vs. its messaging and Story features. The company told Tech Insider in May that 60 million people use Discover every month.
TechCrunch recently reported that Snapchat had “110 million daily active users as of December 2015.” The company has publicly touted over 100 million daily users since last year.
