How to Find Snapchat Best Friends with January 2015 Update

If you are looking to find friends on Snapchat go here and post your username.

UPDATE: Here is the April 6th, 2015 Snapchat Best Friends update. We now have emojis!

Well, this is a feature that most people hated anyway. From what I can gather it looks as if you can see a Snapchat score but you cannot see someone else’s best friends. This is a major step forward to reduce the drama that has been caused by Snapchat. If you are one of those people that constantly looked at Snapchat Best Friends of your boyfriend or girlfriend you are no longer going to have that option.

snapchat-best-friends-2015

I do wonder what this will do to the younger crowd. Part of the lure of Snapchat was to see who someone else was “snapping”. Now that this is gone, how are teenagers and college students going to keep up with their crushes or significant others? Maybe they will actually talk to them face to face? Possibly?

What do you think about Snapchat removing Best Friends? Are you looking for a way that you can see the best friends of your Snapchat friends? I am certain many people are fighting to get the feature back as they want to see what their boyfriend or girlfriend is doing on Snapchat. Feel free to let us know in the comments if you have found a way to find the Snapchat Best Friends of another user.

Can I Still See Snapchat Best Friends on the Old Version of Snapchat?

Well, this is something I would like to know as well. Is there anyone that has technical skills that knows how to revert back to the older Snapchat? We would love to have a step by step guide as to how to get back to the old Snapchat. Maybe then we can see best friends?

I would imagine that users of the older versions of Snapchat will be able to still see best friends. Is this correct? Does anyone have a friend with an old iPhone or Android that is running an older version of Snapchat.

March 16th, 2015 Snapchat Update

On March 16th, 2015 there was a Snapchat update for iOS users. The iPhone app is extremely popular for Snapchat and they tend to update it before they update the Android version. In the March 16th, 2015 update there were minor bug fixes. There has not been the addition of best friends yet. Remember that Evan Spiegel tweeted that best friends would be back soon. It is actually surprising to me that it has now taken two more for the Snapchat team to get best friends back.

I know many people are upset that best friends is still gone but we can hope it will return in April or May 2015. If it does not we may see some Snapchat users leave the product because it is not giving them what they want. In the meantime, check out my What’s on Snapchat Stories Today? series.

This update is horrible. It was always a fun game between my friends and I to try and get to be each other’s best friends, but now that game is gone. Also, by seeing your friend’s best friends, you could add them and make even more friends! But alas, Snapchat took all these great privledges away

I really don’t like this new update. I like seeing the bestfriends of other users, it was one of the reasons I use snapchat, to see who other people are snapping. I want it back

Do they even realise how stupid this is? The ‘Best friends’ list was the main attraction to the app.. It’s created a whole culture with vines, relationships (romantic and friendship). Snapchat will definitely notice a down fall with this cut. Even with all the new features.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. Snapchat is now supporting people cheating in relationships and supporting “players” everywhere. This was a terrible and dirty idea.

Snapchat needs to put the best friends back on the list… We use it for fun best friend games between buddies; also it tells us if our gf’s and bf’s are up to no good… America wants that feature back.. ASAP Snapchat!… Make another update please!

Unfortunately not, prior to even updating my old version of snapchat, I noticed my best friends list stated “no best friends” so even reverting will not change it, I updated because I thought my app was broken or glitched and now I see that is not the case, best friends had been removed in the old version as well.

Absolutely hate the new update. I don’t like the discovery page and I can’t stand the fact that I can’t view my list of friends like the app used to be with easily swiping left and right for friends and them snapchatting and chatting on the other side.

Why would you take away features in an “update”. Terrible idea. I hope they fix this or another similar app sends snapchat to the MySpace era

I don’t like it how it doesn’t have the “best friends” of other people now.
I hate it, change it back or at least put the best friends in the new update.

Not only that but they have removed being able to see other peoples scores which is good and bad, good because it now stops the ‘score envy’/privacy, stalking ect. and bad cause it stops the ‘score envy’. 😛

Absolutely hate this update , the’best friends’ feature was what made snapchat so much better then other apps!
a friend of mine still has the old version of snapchat , apparently when you click the contact to see their best friends it shows that they have none. The best friends feature needs to be brought back!

Anna

I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS UPDATE. Why!? Why!? WHY!? This is so irritating. Why make it so difficult and stupid. It was awesome when it was simple and easy. I’m definitely not going to be using it like I used to. SO DISAPPOINTED. Change it back ASAP.

People loved the best friends list to see what’s going on. It’s not everyone’s fault that some crazy people get jealous over someone else’s name appearing on their bf/gf. It’s not a big deal. It also helped to add mutual friends. I’m so ANNOYED

Why remove the best friends feature? Surely the whole point of an update is to add functionality or fix bugs? Completely get that they want to add new features like ‘Discover’ but build on the existing features not remove one of the key features.

HATE. HATE. HATE. I’d type it a billion times if I could. Snapchat is pointless now. This was the online socializing I liked and used on a daily basis. What is life now.

In terms of getting back the old snapchat… Having cydia (jailbreak) makes it a breeze. Simply add the source “repo.appvv.com/” in cydia. Then, search for “vshare”. After installing vshare, look for the app on your iPhone (sorry andriod), open the app, and search for snapchat. Click on the snapchat option that appears, then you can select history to pick and choose which version you would like (8.?.?). Finally, click download and after a few minutes it should finish and appear on your phone. For me, it convienently replaced my updated 9.0.0 snapchat. If you are not jailbroked, you might have… Read more »

Everyone complaining sounds like an insecure person or stalker. They’re excuse is that they played games to see if they were their friends “best friend:.. “LIES”… you were checking to see who your mate was snapping. Get over it. Celebrities don’t want you knowing who they snap the most & most people don’t either. SO every who hates the update, delete it or stop stalking your mates snap chat. & yup i cheat sometimes, but i def don’t need snapchat to do it. O_o
