Snapchat is one of the most popular snaps or picture sharing apps usually installed on almost everybody‘s phone worldwide. It is not just used to post pictures but also to communicate. Snapchat is a great messaging option for people who like to communicate by clicking photographs and text messages.
The app, however, has its terminologies for communication. People use these words in abbreviations and acronyms, and the other person quickly understands what they are saying. In this article, we’re going over what ‘Strx’ means.

What does Strx stand for?
‘Strx’ stands for ‘ Streaks’. After three days of continuous communication through pictures between two people, there is a streak of three days on that particular conversation on the Snapchat app. Every day the number keeps on adding, indicating that the people have sent each other snaps continuously for those days.
The streaks are represented by the number of days that the streaks or the snaps have continuously been sent by both the parties of the conversation, along with the fire emoji. These two units are put together and written in front of the chat in the series of all the chats or conversations that the account holder is having.
Building and maintaining a streak with someone on Snapchat requires active participation from both people involved as they need to snap at each other at least once within 24 hours; otherwise, the streak breaks.

Why should you maintain a streak with someone?
Streaks are quite beneficial as it only takes a few seconds to click a picture and send it to the other person. It helps maintain the long lost points by just sending a picture and updating the other person about what they are doing.
In this busy world, when people have had difficulties keeping a tab on having conversations with many people, this is an easy and simple way as one can click a snap and send it to multiple people together.
It’s also an excellent option for those living long distances from their friends and family. They can easily communicate and send an everyday snap of what they are doing to update them about their ongoing life and have the same updates from the other end.
