12 Emojis That Mean Something Totally Different In Snapchat

You might be best friends, but are you #1 Best Friends?

Posted on

So, Snapchat has a feature called Friend Emojis, and you’ve probably seen most, if not all, of them next to your friends’ usernames. If you're out of the loop like me and don't know what they mean, here's a quick explainer:

2. Yellow Heart 💛

Snapchat / BuzzFeed

Think of this person as your BEST best friend. You snap them the most, and they snap you the most. This makes you #1 Best Friends with each other.


5. Star 🌟

Snapchat / BuzzFeed

You or another Snapchatter has replayed that person’s snaps in the past 24 hours. Snapchat is just letting you know that whatever it is that person is snapping, it's replay-worthy.


8. Sunglasses 😎

Snapchat / BuzzFeed

One of your best friends is also one of their best friends. Note: There is a difference between having the same best friends and the same #1 Best Friend.

10. Fire 🔥

Snapchat / BuzzFeed

You are on a “Snapstreak” with this person. The number next to the fire emoji indicates how many days you and that person have Snapchatted each other. You and your friend have to both send each other a snap within 24 hours to keep the streak going.

12. Hourglass ⌛️


The hourglass shows up when your Snapstreak with that person is coming to an end. Make sure to both snap each other soon if you want to keep it alive.
