January 4, 2019

What’s better than Snapchatting one of your friends? Snapchatting multiple of your friends – all at once.

Yep, it’s possible – group chats aren’t just for texting, they’re for Snapping too!

Are you ready to try it?

If you know the basics of how to use Snapchat already, this will be a breeze. I’m here to show you how to create a group chat with your Snapchat Friends – in just three easy steps!

So let’s get to it!

How to make a Snapchat group

Are you a visual learner? Here’s a step-by-step walkthrough on how to make a group chat on Snapchat:

3. Add Snapchat group members

Start typing in the names of the people you want to add to the Snapchat group chat (you can add up to 31 friends to a group chat). Once you’ve added your Snapchat Friends, name the group, and tap ‘Chat with Group’ when you’re finished.

How Snapchat groups work

Now that you’ve created a group chat, let me tell you a little bit about how they work:

  • Anyone in the group can view the Snaps and messages you send – once a member sees a Chat, their name will appear below.

  • Similar to Snapchat Stories, Chats sent to the group will be deleted automatically after 24 hours. So don’t miss what your friends have to say!
  • Unfortunately, you can’t use Snaps you send to the group chat to keep individual Snapstreaks alive – you will have to Snap those individual Snapchatters to keep streaks going strong.
  • If you’d like to edit the group name, add group chat members, change notification settings, or leave the Snapchat group, you can do so by tapping the three horizontal lines in the top left corner of the group chat screen and make the changes you want there.
