In a previous article, I explained what the yellow heart emoji means on Snapchat. Today, I am going to tell you what the red heart (❤️️) emoji means.
As you’re probably already aware, Snapchat will place different emojis next to your friend’s names. These emojis all have their own different meanings. Furthermore, these emojis can expire and disappear, as they are all based on recent activity.
What does the red heart emoji mean?
The red heart emoji means that you have been “best friends” with each other for over two weeks. It means that you and the other person have been consistently snapping each other the most. As a result, Snapchat has presumed that the both of you are best friends.
This is a shared emoji. Therefore, the other person can also see a red heart next to your name.
Did the yellow heart turn into the red heart?
Yes. The yellow heart will only last for two weeks. If, after two weeks, the two of you are still best friends, Snapchat will convert the yellow heart into a red one.
Think about it: A red heart means more.
How can I remove the red heart?
If you need to remove the red heart immediately, then you will need to block the person, unblock them and then add them back as a friend. Although that might result in an awkward conversation.
If you have some time to spare, then you should just avoid replying to their snaps. You can also try sending a lot of snaps to someone else.
Why did the red heart emoji disappear?
The red heart will disappear if either of you start snapping another person more than the other. This can happen pretty easily if either of you stop using Snapchat for a few days. For the red heart to remain, you must consistently send the most snaps to each other. Remember: Emojis are based on recent activity. As a result, they won’t last if either of you drops off for a couple of days.
Why did the red heart go back to a yellow heart?
This could be a temporary cache issue. That, or one of you became best friends with somebody else for a small period of time. Example:
- You both become best friends for a week, resulting in a yellow heart.
- You remained best friends for two weeks. As a result, the yellow heart turned into a red heart emoji.
- For a day or two, one of you became best friends with somebody else.
- After that, you became “best friends” again. Subsequently, Snapchat refreshed its emojis and it now thinks that you’ve only been best friends for a few days.
Now, you’re both back on the yellow heart. Heartbreaking, but you can earn it back.
Hopefully, this guide helped to clear a few things up for you!
