 Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps and messaging platforms in the world right now primarily because of its privacy-focused features such as disappearing messages and screenshot notifications among others. That said, the app also doesn’t compromise on any messaging features either that you’d expect from a modern messaging app. 

In this article, we’re talking about how to make a group chat on Snapchat.

Making group chats on Snapchat

Making a group chat in Snapchat is rather easy, as you’d expect. Just follow these steps.

  • Open the Snapchat app and tap the chat icon in the bottom right. 
  • Tap New Group. 
  • Tap the New Group Name button to enter the group’s name.
  • Select the participants for a new group chat from the list given below. Alternatively, you can also search for them using the To search bar. 
  • Once you’re done adding participants, tap the Chat with Group button to create the group. 

Snapchat lets you add up to 100 members to a group chat, so there’s plenty of room for all your friends. Also, keep in mind that the snaps you send to a group chat don’t count for snap streaks with individual Snapchatters. Just like with groups on other messaging apps, you can mention individual users by typing their username followed by ‘@’ and you can see who’s read or received a specific snap by pressing and holding the message. 

Adding members to an existing group

If you already have a Snapchat group chat and would like to add more members, follow these steps. 

  • Tap the group icon in your Snapchat chats list. 
  • Scroll down and tap Add Members. 
  • Select the friends you’d like to add to the group from the list shown. You can also search for individual friends. 
  • Once all friends have been selected, tap the Done button.
