What does the 🔥 emoji mean?
If you see the 🔥 next to your friend's name on the Chat screen, that means you and your friends are on a Snapstreak - you and your friend have Snapped each other (not chatted) within a 24-hour window for more than three consecutive days.
What does the number next to the 🔥 emoji mean?
The number next to the 🔥 tells you how many days you've been on a Snapstreak. For example, if you have an '8' next to the 🔥 it means you have Snapped (not Chatted) back and forth with this friend for 8 days.
To keep a Snapstreak going, both Snapchatters must send a Snap (not Chat) back and forth to each other within a 24-hour window.
What does the ⌛️ emoji mean?
You’ll see a ⌛️ next to a friend’s name if your Snapstreak with them is about to expire.
Please Note: Snaps sent to a group don't count for Snapstreaks you have with individual Snapchatters 😏
