Snapchat: Here’s How to Change Your Friend Emojis

Personalize these icons

By default, Snapchat will show certain emoji next to your friends if they’ve met specific requirements. For instance, an emoji will appear next to your “#1 Best Friend” in the application. Did you know that you can change these emoji to suit your tastes? Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Snapchat app on iOS. Also note: This process is slightly different on iOS and Android devices, but our guide will point out the differences.

Step 1: Tap your profile picture in the top-left corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: On iOS, scroll down to the “Additional Services” section and tap “Manage.” On Android, tap “Custom Emojis.”

Step 4: On iOS, tap “Friend Emojis.” On Android, this step isn’t necessary.

Step 5: Tap one of the categories to change its emoji.

Step 6: Tap the emoji you want to use for that category. Note: You can scroll to view all of the available emoji that you can choose from.

Step 7: Tap the back arrow in the top-left corner of the screen to return to the previous screen, where you can select another category to change its emoji, or leave the menu entirely. Note: If you ever want to reset all of your Friend Emojis to the default selections, repeat Steps 1-4 on iOS or Steps 1-3 on Android and tap “Reset to default” at the bottom of the screen.
