There was a time when connecting to our loved ones was not so easy. We would write them letters, and it took days, or in some cases, months to reach them. But the rapid development of technology has brought the world to our fingertips.

Using our smartphones, we can quickly connect to the people we adore and have a conversation, especially after the invention of social media.

Speaking of social media, one of the leading platforms today is Snapchat. The app allows users to send texts, photos, videos, etc., to other users. But that is not all. Snapchat empowers its users to create groups and have Group Chats with numerous people simultaneously. 

If you are a Snapchat user yet do not know how to make a group, you are in the right place. Because, below, I will mention the steps to start a Group Chat on Snapchat.      

What is Snapchat?

Snapchat is an instant messaging app that allows its users to connect with their near ones. However, that is only the beginning. 

It is pretty feature-heavy and offers numerous facilities for its users. These include Snapstreaks, Snap Map, Story, Snapcode, Snapstore, Discover, Geo-filters, etc.

It also comes equipped with a plethora of face and world lenses, enhancing your Snapchat experience. 

Interestingly, the older versions of Snapchat came with its own payment app, namely Snapcash. By linking their bank account or credit card, users could transfer or receive money within the Snapchat app. It still bugs me that they removed this feature. 

However, the feature we will focus on in this article is its Group Chats.          

The importance of group chats for staying connected with friends

In today’s digital world, group chats carry remarkable significance. They exude a sense of belonging and being connected among the participants. Even when they are physically away from each other, group chats allow them to connect virtually. 

Also, they enable instant responses in situations that involve multiple people. Texting all these people one by one is time-consuming and where every second matters, this is inconceivable. Group chats give all individuals an opportunity to receive the message at once and respond fast. 

Plus, group chats let users share various types of documents, including images, videos, audio, documents, etc. Once shared, group members can easily search for the files and access them, no matter how old they are.

Steps to make a Group Chat on Snapchat

Now, I will list out all the steps you need to follow to make a Snapchat Group and have a conversation with up to 200 people at once:

  • Launch the Snapchat app on your smartphone.
  • At the bottom of your screen, you will see the ‘Chat’ button with a text bubble icon. Click on it.
  • After that, click on the ‘New Chat’ button at the bottom-right of your screen. 
  • Next, click on ‘New Group,’ and choose the participants of the group. At this stage, you can also name your group by tapping the ‘New Group’ option. 
  • Once done, click on the ‘Chat with Group’ button.  

That’s it! You have now successfully made a Snapchat group where you can have fun group conversations. 

Here’s a little secret: if you send a Bitmoji, only the participant who last sent a message, Snap, or something else in the group will have a Friendmoji. 

Also, note that all the Snaps or texts you send to a Group Chat get auto-deleted after 24 hours. While this feature increases privacy, I recommend you be careful about what you send, as Snapchat does not prevent taking screenshots.    

How to customize or manage the Group Chat on Snapchat?

Snapchat makes it easier for you to not only create Group Chats but also customize or manage them. Allow me to explain these effective Group Chat management options:

Add members 

If you want to add a member or members to your Snapchat group, you can do so in two ways: first is from your contact list, and the second is via an invite link. 

To add members to your contact list, simply do the following: 

  • Tap your group profile icon and open your group settings.
  • Tap ‘Add Members.’
  • Select the contacts from the subsequent list and tap ‘Done’ to add those new members to the group.

To add members via an invite link, follow these steps:

  • Tap your group profile icon and open your group settings. 
  • Tap on ‘Invite Via Link.’
  • From the pop-up window that appears next, tap on ‘Invite.’
  • Finally, share the invite link with your friends on your preferred platform, such as WhatsApp, Messenger, etc.

Remove members

If you want to remove members from your Snapchat group, here’s how you can do it:

  • Swipe right on the camera screen to enter the ‘Chat’ section.
  • Now, tap on the group icon that you want to make changes to.
  • Scroll down and find the username of the member whom you want to remove from the group.
  • Next, long press on the username to see relevant options.
  • Select the ‘Remove from group’ option and press confirm.

Mute members

Snapchat lets you mute notifications from a group to eliminate your annoyance. Doing so is quite easy:

  • Start by accessing the group settings.
  • Tap on the three vertical dots on the top-right corner of your screen.
  • Tap “Message Notifications.’ 
  • On the subsequent pop-up, you get three options: ‘All Messages’ (for all messages), ‘Mentions Only’ (for tagged messages), and ‘Silent’ (for all notifications). Tap on the most suitable option.

Leave the Group Chat 

In case you no longer wish to be a part of a particular group, you are free to leave it. Leaving a group requires you to perform the following steps:

  • Open your group settings.
  • Tap on the three vertical dots on the top-right corner of your screen. 
  • Tap ‘Leave Group.’

Rename the group 

Renaming a Snapchat group is an effortless affair. Here is how you can change the name of a group:

  • Tap on the intended group.
  • Then, tap on the name of the group and rename it to whatever you want.
  • Tap ‘Done’ after writing a new name.  

Save group texts 

If you want to save certain messages in your Snapchat group, just do the following: 

  • Open the Group Chat and find the message to save.
  • Simply hold on to that message and tap ‘Save.’

Snapchat’s text-saving feature works a little differently when compared to other messaging apps. Unlike them, Snapchat marks your save and lets all the group participants know that you have saved that message. Keep this in mind to avoid getting into any embarrassing situations.  

Benefits of Group Chats on Snapchat

There are multiple perks of Snapchat Group Chats:

  • Snapchat Group Chats help users stay in touch with several friends at the same time. Instead of sending messages to them individually, just a single message in the group will suffice. This saves time and improves the convenience of the user.
  • For businesses, Group Chats on Snapchat bring about better engagement with their audience. They can use the groups as an effective medium to share the latest updates, offers, promotional content, etc. Besides making reaching out to potential customers easier, it can help boost brand awareness. All this is bound to contribute to more sales and revenue. 
  • Organizations can also utilize Snapchat Group Chats to facilitate better communication and cooperation between team members. Group Chats can serve as a platform where all the members can have discussions in real-time and arrive at a decision much quicker.


Snapchat Group Chats can permit users to connect to all their dear ones at once and share their Snaps. Plus, it brings better engagement and increased sales for businesses. In addition, it can promote better collaboration among teammates in a company.

I hope this step-by-step guide to creating such a Group Chat will help you a great deal in elevating your virtual interaction. Also, peep the steps to manage your group to master your Snapchat Group Chat game.
