What Are Snapchat Friend Emojis?
Snapchat keeps a record of how often you message and interact with your friends. The app assigns emojis to these friends based on how often you interact with them. And these emojis depict the current status of your friendship level with other Snapchatters.
The emojis will change as you keep interacting with your friends. And if you don’t interact with a person for a while, the emoji(s) will likely disappear entirely. Only you can see your Friend emojis; they’re not public.

Snapchat Friend Emoji Meanings 2023
Snapchat has many friend emojis and each of them has its meaning. We have explained the meanings of all the Snapchat emojis below. Take a look at them.
1. Smile 😊
The smile emoji stands for ‘best friends’. You’ll see it next to your friend’s name if the person is one of your friends.
However, it does not mean you are best friends with each other. So if you often send snaps to some Snapchat users, you’ll see this emoji beside their names.
2. Yellow heart (Besties) 💛
You are #1 best friends (besties) with each other. It means you send the most snaps to this person, and they send you the most snaps too.
3. Red heart (BFF) ❤️
This emoji means you’ve been BFFs for two consecutive weeks. Therefore, if you’ve been interacting with some friends for two consecutive weeks, Snapchat will show the red heart next to their names.
4. Two Pink Hearts (Super BFF) 💕
When you see the two pink hearts next to a friend’s username, it means that this person has been your ‘Super BFF’ for 2 months in a row or your #1 best friend on Snapchat.
5. Grimacing Face 😬
A smiley grimacing his teeth next to your friend’s name means that you share a best friend. That is, your number one best friend is their number one best friend.
6. Smirking Face 😏
A smirking face smiley next to your Snapchat friend’s name means that you’re that person’s best friend, but they are not your best friend.
7. Sunglasses Face 😎
When you see this emoji next to a username, it means you share a mutual best friend with them.
8. Sparkles ✨
Snapchat will show a sparkle emoji when you’re snapping with a group of multiple friends. This will help you to recognize all the friends you’re adding in group chats.
9. Baby 👶
Baby emoji appears when you have a new friend on Snapchat. If you don’t add each other to your friends list, your messages will remain pending.
10. Birthday Cake 🎂
When you see a cake emoji beside your friend’s name on Snapchat, it means it’s their birthday. It’s an easy way to help you keep track of your friends’ birthdays.
11. Fire 🔥
You’ll see a fire emoji beside a username when you begin a snapstreak. Snapstreak starts when you exchange snaps with someone regularly for 3 consecutive days.
12. Gold Star 🌟
When you see a gold star, it means that in the past 24 hours, someone else has replayed your friend’s snap.
13. 100 💯
