Snapchat’s new update is here and we are confused, to say the least


Snapchat’s January update (see here) did away with the ‘Best Friends’ feature making a lot of people happy and now it’s back. The good news is that only you get to see who sends you the most snaps and who you don’t reply to as often. And all this with the help of our beloved EMOJIS, YES! Here’s the scoop on everything new.

Snapchat’s recent update has a new way of intimating its users about their relationship with their snap-buddies. With the help of various emojis (each one having its own meaning); Snapchat users can now find out which one of their friends they message the most and the ones that ‘need love’.

If you see a ‘gold heart’ next to a person’s name on your Snapchat friends list, it means you message this person the most.

If you see a smiling face with it’s teeth out (Grimace) then it means this person and you have a mutual best friend – both of you send snaps to a common person almost all the time.


If you see the smirk face emoji next to a friend’s name it means that they send you a lot of snaps but you are not generous enough in replying back.

If you see the cool emoji (face with sunglasses) next to someone’s face it means that one of your best friends (a person you send a lot of snaps too) is one of their best friends.

If you a see a smiley face next to a friends name, they are one of your best friends.

The fire emoji means you’ve begun a ‘snapstreak’ with this friend and you’ve been snapping back and forth for consecutive days.


A ‘need love’ section has also been included in your list of friends to remind you of friends you don’t send snaps to. Apart from the above, there’s a low-light camera feature that improves picture quality for snaps clicked in the dark or poor lighting.
