Welcome to Snapchat: here, moments are captured, stories are shared, and creative potential is endless. If you’re a member of Gen Z, chances are you already know this unique platform. Snapchat launched in 2011, capturing the attention of those seeking a fresh way to communicate and express. Created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, it was initially called “Picaboo” before evolving into the Snapchat we know and love today.
One of its biggest Unique Selling Points is its excitingly spontaneous Snap feature. Unlike other platforms where posts remain indefinitely, Snapchat offers disappearing content. Users send photos and videos called Snaps to their friends or post them on their Story for a limited time, usually 24 hours.
But Snapchat is more than a platform for sharing quick moments. It offers various creative options like adding filters, stickers, and text to Snaps.
In a nutshell, Snapchat is the whole package. If you’ve been wanting to sign up for a wile now, this is your sign to do it! In today’s blog, we’ll discuss if deleting a conversation with someone means your streak with them also goes away.
If I Delete a Conversation on Snapchat and Have Streak With Them, Will They Go?
Now, let’s get straight to our topic for today: will your streak with someone go away if you delete your conversation from Chat feed? The answer to your question is a big, reassuring no. There’s no reason why deleting your chats would affect your snaps.
Don’t worry; if you’re feeling confused, it’s understandable. In today’s blog, we’ll discuss all about snaps, chats, and how both these features work.
Here’s how snapping works on Snapchat
Snaps are the core feature of Snapchat, letting users send and receive photos and videos that disappear after they viewing.
Snaps sent to friends will appear in their Chat screen, and they view them by tapping on the snap. Once opened, the recipient has typically a few seconds to view it before it disappears. They can take a screenshot or use screen recording to save the snap if allowed by the sender, but Snapchat will notify the sender if a screenshot has been taken.
Snaps added on your Snapchat Story are visible to all your friends for a 24-hour period. This allows you to share moments of your day in a more public manner. Your friends can view your Story by swiping left on the camera screen and selecting your username from the list of available stories.
When you send and receive snaps with one user for more than three days, a streak is created between the two of you. To maintain it, you both must send each other a snap every 24 hours.
Deleting a conversation on Snapchat
Deleting a conversation on Snapchat is a simple and convenient process that allows users to manage their conversations and maintain privacy. Whether you want to remove a single message or an entire conversation thread, Snapchat offers various options to delete your chats.
This not only helps declutter your chat list but also ensures that sensitive or private conversations are removed. It can be particularly useful if you’ve had a conversation with someone and want to maintain your privacy.
Deleting a conversation doesn’t guarantee that all traces of the conversation are erased. Screenshots, saved messages, or other methods of capturing content can still exist outside of Snapchat. Therefore, exercise caution when sharing sensitive information through any messaging platform.
Here’s how to Clear a conversation from Chat feed on Snapchat
Step 1: Open Snapchat and go directly to your Chats page.
Step 2: Long press on your chats that you wish to delete from your feed. A menu will appear with several options: tap on Chat Settings.
Step 3: Next, tap on Clear from conversation feed, and that’s it!
Will deleting a conversation break my streak with them?
So, now that you are well-versed with the inner-working of both streak creation and chat deletion, we hope you can tell the answer to this one. No, deleting a conversation won’t break your streak.
It’ll only remove the chats from your feed until they send you a message or vice versa. And when that happens, al the previously saved messages in that chat will also be recovered.
