Snapchat is replacing snapcode with bitmoji
The use of profile photos, also known as Snapchat Snapcode, went quietly unaltered. The company, which forced users with Bitmoji avatars to use their avatars on Snapcode, has stopped showing photos embedded in the phantom frame.
The change made at first glance does not seem too big. Snapchat has also given users the ability to show their Bitmoji avatars in their profiles. However, with the new changes made, Snapchat changes old images without asking their users. Users who do not create bitmoji are not affected by this change. These users can continue to use their old profile photos.
A small search on Twitter shows that their users are not very happy with this change. While it appears that many users are uncomfortable with Bitmoji’s Snapcode, the presence of different discomfort reasons strikes. While some users are uncomfortable with losing their profile photos, some users complain that similar images of Bitmoji are confusing. The connection between Bitmoji and Snapchat account is removed but can not be restored to the old profile picture.
The company paid over $ 100 million a year to buy Bitmoji. So we should not be surprised that the company has put Bitmoji on the forefront. Making Bitmoji more prominent in practice seems to be the safest way to get your investment back for Snapchat.
Still, it seems likely that the company is taking a step back on Snapcode pictures due to user feedback. For Snapchat, who is having trouble increasing the number of users, it is also important not to offend the existing users.
