Not to mention, one user even provided proof of what was going on with the app on her iPhone.

The outlet shares that this Snapchat glitch is only affecting iOS devices such as iPhone XS, XR, and others. So, Android users appear to be in the clear. 

Snapchat developers are diligently working to fix the issue.

After many Snapchat users shared their grievances about the app on social media, Snapchat Support quickly stepped in to share updates via Twitter.

“We're aware of an issue with the latest version of Snapchat available in the App Store,” Snapchat Support tweeted. “Hang tight, we are looking into it and working on a fix!”

The app is well-known for fixing bug issues rather quickly, so users are hoping that will be the case this time around. And since it seems that this issue is affecting a plethora of users, it’s safe to say that the app is acting fast to undo the problem.

As you can imagine, this has left many users to harshly criticize the app — especially since this is not the first time Snapchat has experienced glitches. Back in March 2021, Snapchat users were complaining of the app logging them out

So, hopefully, the app can keep glitches at bay in the future.
