How to add friends on Snapchat

As you get more familiar with Snapchat, you’ll want to add new friends who are not in your contacts. Here are four ways to connect with them.

Method 1: Add by Snapcode

  1. Take a picture of your friend’s Snapcode, or screen capture it.
  2. Open Snapchat and tap on the ghost icon at the top left of the screen.
  3. Tap Add Friends.
  4. Tap Snapcode to open your camera roll.
  5. Tap the image of the Snapcode in your camera roll. Snapchat will scan the photo and add your new friend.

Method 2: Add by username

If you know your friend’s username, you can search for them instead of scanning their Snapcope.

  1. Open Snapchat and tap on the ghost icon at the top left of the screen.
  2. Tap Add Friends.
  3. Tap Username.
  4. Enter your friend’s username, then tap the +Add button next to their name.

Note: On the Add Friends screen, you can also choose to send your username to friends so they can add you.

Method 3: Add nearby

If you’re at a party, conference, or other event, you might want to connect with other people in attendance. You can add multiple people as friends using the Nearby option.

  1. Open Snapchat and tap on the ghost icon at the top left of the screen.
  2. Tap Add Friends.
  3. Tap Nearby.
  4. Tap OK to allow Snapchat to show your username to nearby users.
  5. If you are not already allowing Snapchat to use your location, tap Allow to go to the Locations Settings screen and give Snapchat location access.
  6. Snapchat will scan for other users who have the Add Nearby screen open, then list them for you to choose from.
  7. Tap the + sign next to the usernames of the friends you want to add.

Method 4: Quick Add

Snapchat’s Quick Add feature is similar to suggested contacts on other social networks. It suggests people you may want to connect with based on your mutual contacts, as well as the contacts in your phone. You may not see names suggested in Quick Add until you have started to build up your Snapchat network.

  1. Open Snapchat and tap on the ghost icon at the top left of the screen.
  2. Tap Add Friends.
  3. Scroll down to Quick Add and tap the +Add button next to the contact you want to add as a friend.
