In the official blog, the company posted "Today marks a pretty big change for Snapchat - you no longer have to press and hold the screen to view a Snap or Story - instead, simply Tap to View! This means no more tired thumbs while watching a several-hundred-second Story... and a little getting used to for anyone who has been Snapchatting for a while. We think you're going to love it!"
