Facebook sends you a notification to inform you of a friend’s birthday. Similar to that, there’s a setting on Snapchat by the name of Birthday Party which if turned on will help your friends on Snapchat to remember your birthday. Enabling it makes your zodiac sign emoji appear next to your username and it also adds cake emoji next to your name on your birthday. Not only this but you’ll also get a special Snapchat birthday filter to use in your snaps. And even your friends will have a filter allowing them to wish you in entertaining ways. 

So, if you want to celebrate your special day in the best possible way then here’s how to enable Snapchat Birthday Party on Android or iOS.
