What Does a Gold Heart Mean on Snapchat Best Friends?

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

With the new April 6th, 2015 update we now have a different type of “Best Friends”. From what I understand the gold heart means that is your #1 best friend. In essence, that is who you send and receive the most snap pictures and videos from. For more on all the emojis on the new Best Friends update check out this resource; April 2015 Snapchat Best Friends Update.

I am not 100% certain if everyone can see this gold heart or not. I am going to scramble around and ask some of my friends that are Snapchat users if they see gold hearts for users other than themselves. I would imagine only you can see who your #1 best friend is but, then again, Snapchat did offer the three best friends before the January 2015 update.

Please feel free to comment below if you find out anything bout the Gold Heart or other emoji icons on Snapchat.

You get a smiley face if they’re your best friend.. If you get a yellow heart, it means they’re your number 1 best friend AND you’re their number one best friend.

It shows up next to the guy I am interested in but it is not a relationship and he is definitely not the one I snap most so I’m confused on this heart.. Perhaps they judge based on what you say to each other?

You can change the emoji associated with each, I switched all mine. Play around in edit. You can also clear conversations. It cleans up the app so it won’t crash or take up so much space on ya phone!

So a gold/yellow heart means you are best friends, a red heart means you have been continuous best friends for 2 weeks and a pink heart is continous best friends for 2 months.

courtney
Guest

When the gold heart ? turns red ❤️, it means you’ve been both been best friends with each other for two weeks. If you keep the same best friend for two months, it’ll change to ? instead.
