According to Snapchat, the new Friends and Discover tabs will first be available to iOS users, but they will make it to Android as well in the coming weeks.

Och received an annual compensation of $918.9-million in fiscal year 2007 and $1.19-billion in 2008.

When Snap first announced the redesign previous year in November, it noted that they were short of knowing how the community would react as they started interacting with the newly redesigned app.

The new feature follows a number of new updates from Snapchat to make its app easier to navigate. Others also complained that the update made it hard finding friends and rewatching Stories. Alternatively, you can also search for GIFs using keywords like kisses, cats, foodie, doggo, and more.

Meanwhile, as the app takes criticism, Chief Executive Evan Spiegel may become one of the highest paid executives in the U.S. After the company's IPO last March, Spiegel got a $636.6 million stock grant that will be payable through 2020.

Of course, the primary issue with the Friends and Discover sections "adapting" to user habits is that, if users are dramatically reducing their use of Snapchat in the first place, the app has less to base its adaptation on. Additionally, users will be able to sort things like Stories, Group Chats and Subscriptions to better streamline their day-to-day use.

CEO Evan Spiegel is putting up a fearless front, saying the complaints "validate" the changes that were made and that he is "excited" about the response so far. With 187 million daily users, Snapchat remains much smaller than rivals like Instagram. The app also now promotes sponsored content. Thus, the redesign. Now we wait to see if Snapchat users, like Facebook users, are willing to get over the changes after making such a fuss. "They're not your friend". "How about you quit telling us what you think we'll like and change it back to the way you know we all like", wrote another.

The firm unveiled yesterday it is releasing a new feature to make it easier for users to watch the Stories they care about most.
