Clear feed MIA in Snapchat

By Posted 4 May 2014, 17:28

If you want to be able to clear your feed in the Snapchat app, then it looks like you will not happy to find out the feature has disappeared from the new update on Android and iPhone. This is according to teenagers using the app, and they state that the button has gone after installing the new software.

One of our readers explained, “I can’t find how to delete my snaps on the new snapchat update, it was easy before the new update and I wonder if it’s completed removed now?”. Another Product Reviews reader added, “I’m having the same problem as many others on Twitter, the new Snapchat app on my iPhone 5S won’t let me clear the feed. It looks like they’ve completely taken down the feature”.

Nearly every couple of minutes on Twitter you will see someone ask the question: How can you clear feed on the new Snapchat update!? This is a massive issue for thousands of users, and one that needs fixing as soon as possible, unless there is a very good reason not to allow it.

Can you clear your Snapchat feed after installing the latest update? If so, what version are you running and on what phone hardware?

We installed the new Snapchat update on our iPhone 5, and can confirm that the option to clear your feed was under account actions before and since the latest update it’s gone.

Users now hope that the developers put back this feature with a future update, so leave a comment below if you want the ability to clear your Snapchat feed returned? You never know, if enough noise is made on Twitter and blogs, then we could see the clear feed feature return to Snapchat very soon.

    Bring back the clear feed button because it’s just plain annoying having everybody you snapchatted on your page. Plus some of my snaps won’t send. So they we will say sending 24/7 and I can’t get it off. But if I could clear my feed I wouldn’t see that.

    My snapchat feels hella cluttered, I hate in! Bring the “clear feed” option back . It’s better. πŸ˜•
    Also, the developers should have know that of people don’t want others to see the pictures they sent, then why would we want to make the people who we talk to visible as well?
    I think you should just put the “clear feed” option back.
