Featured - how to make a group chat on snapchat

Snapchat is used by over 332 million individuals daily, making it one of the world’s most popular social media platforms. Snapchat is a well-known and creative social media app, and Snapchat pioneered several features in today’s most popular social networking applications, including AR selfie filters, stories, and geo-filters. 

The multimedia messaging application was also fast to provide its customers with a group chat feature. Group messaging is a great way to stay in touch with your friends and spread information without contacting everyone individually. 

Creating and maintaining group chats on Snapchat is a breeze if you know where to look. On the other hand, snaps sent to a group chat do not count towards Snapstreaks with individual Snapchat users. If you want to keep your Snapstreak with someone, you must still send them individual snaps. Here is how to make a group on Snapchat.

  1. In your group chat, tap the “Group Profile” at the top left corner

Where to Find Your Group on Snapchat

Previous versions of the Snapchat app had a Groups option alongside the Friends tab. However, that feature has since been removed in newer versions.

  1. Tap the “Chat” icon at the bottom of your screen
     
    Android - Snapchat App - Chat Icon
  2. You can access your group chat in the Snapchat Chat section

  3. Search for the group name by tapping the “Search” icon next to the “Profile” icon
     
    If you can’t find your group chat in your Chat section, you can search for it by the group’s name.
     
    Android - Snapchat App - Chat Icon - Search Icon
  4. Type in your group name at the top in the “Search” bar
     
    Android - Snapchat App - Chat Icon - Search
  5. Tap the group once it appears in the result
