Have you ever noticed Snapchat carefully? There’s a fire emoji at the side of your friend’s name if you are maintaining a daily streak with them. Streak means that you and your friend send snaps to each other for sharing your daily moments. But have you ever wondered why the streak is represented by the fire emoji and not by any other emoji, maybe your favorite one? If you want to know how to change the streak emoji with some other emoji, this article will help you to accomplish your task.
Streak Emojis Description
The default emojis for representing streaks on Snapchat are a total of three which are fire, hundred, and hourglass. We’ll be explaining the meaning of all the emojis in the upcoming sections of this article.
The emoji of fire represents that you and your friend are maintaining a proper game of streak by snapping the daily moments. At the start, you won’t be seeing any emoji next to your friend’s name. Sending snaps for three consecutive days will show the fire emoji. You can also see a number next to the fire emoji that tells you the number of days you have been maintaining streaks with your friend. To see the emoji of fire next to your friend’s name, you both have to send the snaps regularly. The emoji will appear only if you both are sending snaps for three consecutive days. The snaps should be sent within 24 hours else you’ll break the streak and you won’t be seeing the fire emoji.
As we have already mentioned the fact that you’ll see a number next to the fire emoji that represents the number of days you have been sending snaps to your friends. As soon as the number reaches 100, you can see the emoji 100 next to the fire emoji. As long as the streak continues, the number of streaks will also increase and you won’t be seeing the emoji of a hundred.
When the streak is about to be over, you’ll see an emoji of the hourglass. This emoji warns you that if you or your friend won’t be sending snaps soon, you’ll break the streak. The emoji of the hourglass will appear if you or the other person haven’t sent a snap for more than 20 hours.
