How to Start Your Snapchat Streak 2022
Are you a Snapchat newbie? If that’s the case, you’re probably having a great time on the most engaging and interactive messaging platform available. Snapchat has some great built-in mechanisms to keep users interested, such as the “Snapchat streak.”
It’s simple to start a Snapchat streak. It’s another matter to make it last. We’ve got you covered if you want to learn how to do it. There are no specific rewards for having a Snapchat streak, but keeping the streak alive is a reward in and of itself.
Anyone who’s had a really long streak with their friends will understand exactly what we mean.
Starting Out on Snapchat
Snapchat is extremely user-friendly and intuitive. It won’t take you long to figure out how to navigate it. If you’re on iOS, make sure to download and update Snapchat from the official App Store, and if you’re on Android, go to the Google Play Store.
Unfortunately, Snapchat’s PC support is limited, and the app is best used on a smartphone (tablet or phone). You can start building your streak right away after installing the app for the first time and signing up (follow the simple onscreen instructions).
Snapchat will look through your phone’s contacts for people to add. When you first launch the Snapchat app on your device, make sure you give it permission to do so. You can also find your friends by searching for their username or QR code.
Adding Friends on Snapchat
If you don’t have enough friends in your phone contacts, don’t worry. Follow the steps below to find more friends on Snapchat:
- Launch the app.
- At the top of your screen, tap the Search bar, or even better, tap the Add Friend button (plus icon).
- By tapping Add next to their username, you’ll see a list of recommended users (friends of friends) who you can add. You can also manually search for your friend by typing their Snapchat username into the search field.
- Finally, the QR code method can be used. Scan your friend’s QR code with the Snapchat icon in the top-right corner of your screen. If you want to use this method, save the image with their QR code to your phone. After that, simply select the image and Snapchat will scan it for you.
How to Start Your Snapchat Streak
This question has a straightforward answer. All you have to do to start a Snapchat streak is, you guessed it, send Snaps. Your friend simply needs to snap you back, and that’s it. To begin the streak, you must keep this up for at least three days.
You’ll notice a fire icon next to your friend’s username in the Chat menu after the third day of back and forth Snaps. This indicates that the streak is continuing. Only by sending your friend Snaps on a daily basis can you keep it.
For the streak to continue, there must be a 24-hour Snap exchange every day. Regular chat messages are not available. Otherwise, you’ll lose your streak if you don’t send Snaps (photos or videos). Stories, spectacles, and memories are all disqualified.
None of them will be able to keep the flame burning. That’s one of the main reasons why so many people continue to use Snapchat every day: to keep their Snapchat streaks alive.
Snapchat Streak Tips – How to Make It Last
Keep reading if you already know the answer to this question. How do you remember to snap your friends every day and keep coming back to Snapchat? A streak can be easily broken – believe me, I’ve been there.
I’ve been a terrible Snapchat friend because I keep forgetting to respond to my friends’ Snaps. That’s why I never have a winning streak with any of them, or if I do, it’s short-lived. Don’t make the same mistake as me and forget to respond to your friends.
Even better, you can begin your Snap streak by starting the Snap chain. The best way to do this, in my opinion, is to send Snaps first thing in the morning. Get on Snapchat first thing in the morning and send some early Snaps to your friends.
If you make this a habit, you’ll be able to maintain your streak with little effort. That’s how the “Snapchatters” succeed.
Is There a Point in Doing This?
There most certainly is. Maintaining a Snapchat streak will allow you to keep up with your friends’ hectic schedules. Another advantage is that maintaining these streaks will help you improve your Snapchat score.
