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.
