Those who have downloaded and installed the latest Snapchat update will notice a new timer or hourglass emojis next to the names of some of your friends. But what does the hourglass emoji in Snapchat mean? Snapchat’s official support page on Twitter has revealed that the new hourglass emoji indicates that your snapstreak is going to end.
This isn’t the first time when a Snapchat emoji has been released without its meaning. Last spring, the cryptic friend emoji was introduced and no one knew what it meant. Since them, a lot of such emojis have been added including heart, baby, or the gold star emoji. The guys at Snapchat are usually secretive about the meanings of new emojis, but they let the hourglass emoji be an exception.
