Snapchat is one of the most popular and heavily used social media platforms today. It is widely used by people of all ages and offers a wide range of features such as individual, and group chats, and stories that can be shared with other users.
With its growing popularity, Snapchat has also embraced the use of emojis to express ideas or emotions in a fun and creative way. That being said, here is a guide to the list of emojis used on Snapchat.

The yellow heart emoji is used to show that you are in each other’s “best friends” list, which is determined by how often you interact with someone on Snapchat.

Snapchat Friends Emojis Are Customizable
There are emojis displayed next to Snapchat usernames that are assigned based on your interactions with them. In a general sense, there are default emojis assigned but these are customizable in your friends list.
To customize it, you may do it by going to Settings (⚙️). Scroll down and tap ‘Manage’ > under ‘Additional Services’ tap ‘Friend Emojis’ > start customizing!
The Trophy Case
The trophy case is a section on Snapchat where users can see which emojis they have earned by completing various activities.
However, the Snapchat trophies feature was removed from the app in May 2019. Instead, this feature was replaced by a new, and perhaps a better one, called Charms.
Official/Verified Snapchat Accounts
Verified accounts on Snapchat have a more interactive way of showing their authenticity. Celebrities, public figures, influencers, etc. would be known to have a verified account once an emoji shows off at the right of their names.
But unlike other social media platforms, the verification symbol of a Snapchat profile is not the same as someone can pick an emoji of their choice such as a star, camera, crown, etc. to represent their profile.
A Bitmoji is a fun and unique avatar that you can create in the Snapchat app. You can customize your Bitmoji to look like you, dress it up in different outfits, and add expressions to make it more realistic.
