Other Snapchat Emoji Meanings Explained

Zodiac emoji is the latest. But Snapchat has always been popular for its emojis. There are a lot of emojis and very few people know what exactly each of these signify. We’ve compiled the list of emojis and their meanings for the newbies –

Smirking Face — You are one of their best friends. But they are not a best friend of yours. This also means you don’t send them many snaps, but they send you a lot.

Grimacing Face — Your best friend is also their best friend. This means you send the most snaps to the same person that they do. Feeling awkward? Never mind!

Smiling Face — Best friend of yours. You send this person a lot of snaps. May not be your “the best friend”  but they are in the list of favorites!

Hourglass / Timer – Caution! Snapstreak is about to end with this person!

Gold Star – This is when someone has replayed this person’s snaps in the past 24 hours. Maybe they have something interesting to show? Check it out!

Baby — You just became friends with this person.

Yellow Heart — You are best friends. You send the most snaps to this person, and they also reciprocate by sending the most snaps to you.

Red Heart – Best friends with each other for two weeks straight! An accomplishment? Maybe!

Pink Hearts — Heights of Dedication? You have been best friends with each other for two months straight

Face With Sunglasses — One of your best friends is one of their best friends. Distant Relationship??

Fire — You are on a Snapstreak! You have snapped this person every single day, and you received a snap from that person too.

Hundred — 100 Day Snapstreak. The 100 emoji appears next to the fire when you snap back and forth with someone for one hundred days in a row. Now that’s what we call dedication!!
