These were the most used Snapchat filters this year

Note to the masses, you don't look cute with a dog's nose and ears...

Snapchat are still reeling from lower than expected user growth in 2017 with Q3 earnings for the year showing 4.5 million new users, much less than Snapchat had envisaged.


The figures prompted a big redesign which is currently being tested among a small number of users and will be rolled out to users in the new year.

You can take a look at all the new features in the redesign here.

But despite slow user growth, Snapchat remains an incredibly popular app in Ireland, especially among 16-34 year olds. It's also hugely popular in the US and was the second most downloaded iOS app after Bitmoji.

Over 178 million people use Snapchat every day including over 25% of all smartphone owners in the UK, US and France.
