Are you new to Snapchat or it might be possible that you have been using it for some time now but still don’t know what those smiley face, red/yellow heart or fire emojis mean. Snapchat has been a unique messaging app because of its face filters and other cool stickers like temperature, time, speed, and more. Apart from that, Snapchat shows emojis next to your friend’s names. They are not random or meaningless instead they are shown because of a reason.

So, here we are with this article to reveal Friend Snapchat Emoji meanings.

1. Smiley Face πŸ˜€

This is shown next to the people who are your best friends. These users are determined based on the number of snaps you exchange with each other.

2. Face With Glasses 😎

If you see this with any of your friends then it means that you and that person share a best friend. In simple terms, if you have a mutual best friend with someone then this emoticon will appear next to their name.

3. Yellow Heart πŸ’›

Yellow heart friend Emoji means that you and other person are each others number 1 best friend. So, if someone is your number 1 best friend and they are also your number 1 best friend then you’ll see this emoji.

4. Red Heart ❀

It is same as the yellow heart with the only difference that you need to be each others number 1 best friend for 3 consecutive weeks.

5. Pink Hearts πŸ’•

Again, it is almost the same as Yellow or Red Heart emoji. But for pink hearts, you need to be each others number 1 best friend for 2 consecutive months.

6. Grimacing Face 😬

This emoji will show up next to those friends whose number one best friend is the same as your number one best friend. A slight difference from Face With Glasses emoji.

7. Fire πŸ”₯

It is the best part of Snapchat which I personally like. The fire emoji means that you and the other person has sent each other snap daily for the number of days that appear before the fire emoji.

It is also known as Snapstreak. If you and the other person don’t exchange snaps in 24 hours then the Snapstreak will expire and so does the Fire emoji.

8. Smirking Face 😏

If you are one of their best friends but they are not one of yours then this emoticon will appear next to their name.

9. Gold Star 🌟

This appears on a friend’s name when their snap has been replayed by someone. It simply means that they have photos & videos that are worth watching.

10. Hourglass βŒ›

It indicates that your Snapstreak with that friend is about to end. Hence, you need to send a snap to keep it going.

11. 100 πŸ’―

It is quite an achievement if you get this emoji on one of your friends. It means that you and your friend have sent snaps to each other for 100 consecutive days.

12. Birthday Cake πŸŽ‚

If you see this emoji then it’s your friend’s birthday. Send them a snap to wish them. Please note that it will only appear for users who have enabled Birthday Party option in Settings.

13. Zodiac Emojis

The specific zodiac emoji will appear depending on the person’s date of birth. It will only show if they have added their date of birth in Snapchat and enabled Birthday Party setting.

Here’s the complete list.

  • Capricorn β™‘ – December 22 – January 19
  • Aquarius β™’ – January 20 – February 18
  • Pisces β™“ –  February 19 – March 20
  • Aries β™ˆ – March 21 – April 19
  • Taurus ♉ – April 20 – May 20
  • Gemini β™Š – May 21 – June 20
  • Cancer β™‹ – June 21 – July 22
  • Leo β™Œ – July 23 – August 22
  • Virgo ♍ – August 23 – September 22
  • Libra β™Ž – September 23 – October 22
