Snapchat introduced its disastrous new update at the starting of 2018. It made a lot of people angry and there was even a petition complaining about the redesign. After receiving huge criticism for the update, Snapchat started rolling back to the old design. Like after the rollback update, we could see the dedicated section for Friends chat and stories. And after a while, Snapchat also gave back the straight-forward option to see the friends list on both Android and iOS.

But we don’t know for sure that Snapchat will not take away or make changes to this option in the future, leaving us frustrated and confused again. That is why it is important that you should know different methods to view all your friends on Snapchat. So that if one of those methods goes away, you at least have another method to your rescue.

So here we are with this article to show you not one, but four methods to view your complete friends list on Snapchat.

If you are obsessed with having a high snap score then here are some tips you can try to increase it. As the number of followers or friends is not shown on your profile, the snapscore is the only thing that you can show off to your profile visitors. So, you better get going.

The user interface of the app is almost similar to both Android and iOS, so you follow the explained methods in any of the platforms.

Method 1

The first method is quite simple and straightforward. It’s just that with this method, the friends you’ll see on the list will be the friends who have also added you back as a friend:

  1. Launch the Snapchat app on your smartphone.
  2. Now tap on your Bitmoji or story thumbnail (in case you have an active story) on the top left corner of the screen to open your Snapchat profile.

Method 2

This method is also simple and as easy as the first method. However, with this method, the list of friends that you’ll see will not be well organized:

  1. Launch Snapchat on your smartphone.
  2. On the camera screen, you’ll see a chat icon to get to your friends’ list on the bottom left corner of the screen. Tap on it. You can also swipe right from the camera screen to get to your friends’ list.

Method 3

In this method, you basically create a new chat to view your friends’ list. Unlike with the last method, this method shows you the list in a more organized manner. Like you’ll see the friends with whom you communicate frequently falling under the Best Friends category. Then you’ll see all the recently added friends in the Recents category, and finally, all your friends will be arranged alphabetically in the All category.

  1. In the Snapchat app, go to the Chats screen by tapping on the chat icon at the bottom left.
  2. Next, tap on the new chat icon at the top right.

The only difference is that with this method, you’ll also see Quick Add category with a list of people whom you can be friends with.

  1. In Snapchat, take a random snap.
  2. Now, tap on the send icon at the bottom right.
