Emojis are a great way to express yourself virtually. But Snapchat has taken emojis to a whole new level. Snapchat analyses and keeps track of your in-app activity and your interactions with other users on the app.
If you saw an emoji being displayed next to the name of a Snapchat user and wondered what it means, this article is for you. In this guide, we’ll be covering all the different emojis Snapchat offers and will also be deciphering the meaning of every emoji for you.
Meaning of Snapchat Friend emojis
1. Baby Face 👶
This emoji appears beside a Snapchat username when you have recently added a user to your friend list. It is essential to add a user to your friend list if you want to interact with them; else, the send message would remain under “pending.” The emoji may take 1-2 weeks to disappear, possibly even longer.
2. Smiling Face 😊
This emoji appears when the user is on the top of your friends’ list. To maintain this emoji, you must frequently be sharing snaps with the user. But this doesn’t mean that you are also on the top of their friends’ list. You both are good friends but still have to interact more to reach the BFF territory.
3. Yellow Heart 💛
This emoji shows that both of you are very close friends. It appears when both users are on the top of each other’s friends list. The emoji denotes that the user is your bestie. Keep maintaining such friendships to attain even higher friendship emojis.
4. Red Heart ❤️
This icon appears when both users have maintained an excellent friendship, i.e., been besties for two consecutive weeks. They have been on top of each other’s friends list for straight two weeks.
5. Two Pink Hearts 💕
This emoji is the zenith of all friendship emojis. The icon is unlocked when both users are on top of each other’s friends list for two consecutive months.
6. Grimace Face 😬
You’ll see this emoji when a user is a part of a dynamic friend circle. The icon appears when your top best friend is their best friend as well.
7. Sunglasses Face 😎
When you and the other user share a mutual best friend, this icon displays beside the person’s username. Like the Grimace face, this emoji is standard among people who are a part of a friend circle with solid and unbreakable friendships.
8. Golden Star 🌟
This icon appears next to those who replayed your friend’s snap in the past 24 hours, apart from you.
9. Birthday cake 🎂
As the emoji suggests, this appears beside your friend’s username on their birthday. Don’t forget to look out for this icon and make your friend’s day special.
10. Fire 🔥
This emoji appears beside your friend’s username when a Snapstreak initiates. A Snapstreak starts when you send and receive snaps from a friend for three consecutive days, and you can continue it for as long as you stay committed. Maintain long Snapstreaks to improve your Snapscore.
11. 100 emoji 💯
This emoji appears when you have maintained a Snapstreak for an astonishing 100 days. Now, this is what is called commitment.
12. Smirk Face 😏
This emoji used to appear when you are one of their top friends on their list, but they are not one of yours. To your surprise, Snapchat has removed this emoji as they believed that the emoji might be a symbol of broken friendships or relationships.
13. Hourglass ⌛
This emoji acts more like an alert representing that your Snapstreak is about to end. This icon appears when you have spent 20 hours without sending a single snap but still have 4 hours to save your Snapstreak. However, the hourglass emoji will disappear if you fail to do so.
