Yesterday, Snapchat automatically updated millions of accounts across the globe. Without warning, users woke up to a different-looking version of the app, that is apparently messier and more confusing. This update has caused many longtime Snapchat fans to not only publicly complain, but also abandon the app for good.

Within hours, several videos have surfaced which explain both how to remove the update and how to cope with it. Watch them here:
