Snapchat is a quite popular social media application, especially among the younger generation. Whenever you launch Snapchat, you are welcomed by a fire emoji available next to your best friend’s name. The number before the emoji increases every day. But also there are some unavoidable circumstances where you lost your Streak unexpectedly. Thankfully, it is possible to retrieve the unexpectedly gone Streak. Here, in today’s post, I will present a complete guide on how to get Snapchat Streak back after a sudden loss.
What Is Snapchat Streak?
Before we move ahead first we need to know what exactly Snapchat Streak is and how it forms? The concept of Streak is very simple all you need to do is to exchange pictures and videos with your friend consistently for three days in a row. After that, you will notice a fire emoji along with some numbers next to your friend’s name with whom you streak. The number available with emojis shows the number of days you kept streaking ongoing with your friend.
This is not a solo effort that means both you and your friends need to be Snap with each other. However, Snapchat doesn’t count the number of texts you exchange, so you need to exchange only pictures and videos to keep Streak ongoing.
Now you may ask, what are the benefits of keeping Streak ongoing? Am I right? Streak can be used to redeem Snapchat trophies, for example, if you are able to reach Streak thresholds then Snapchat will award you with a pack of 100 amazing emojis. However, these rewards are worthless but its fun to get them.
What Are The Rules For Snapchat Streak?
