Longest Snapchat Streak: You have been busy all day shuttling between college, coaching and the hectic internship you took in order to gain ‘experience’ and you almost forget you have a life beyond that. A little virtual nest to fall back on after a busy day. As you lie on your bed later in the night you get a call from your best friend.
You pick it up and before you can say anything you get paraded with all the unspoken words in all the languages he knows because apparently someone was so busy all day that they forgot to maintain their Snapchat streak which was about to hit the 400 milestones in two days.
A dream shattered at 398 strong. If this has ever happened to you, this article is something you would enjoy. More importantly, you might be able to get a little pleasure knowing one of these days a 1000+ snap streak might break too. IMAGINE THAT.
Moving on to the topic at hand, the Snapstreak.
The longest Snapchat streak ever will always be an ever-changing phenomenon and also almost assuredly an ever-increasing value.
What is Snapchat?
Snapchat is a multimedia messaging app used globally, created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc.
Initially released back in July of 2011, Snapchat immediately gained international prominence as one of the major stakeholders in the social media revolution that had just turned into second gear at the turn of the decade following the immense popularity of Facebook and Twitter.
However, the founders had not included the streak feature in the initial release back in the July of 2011. The idea of the streak and with it other emojis was thought of only much later and rolled out for the use of the users of the platform only on the 6th of April 2015.
The feature though was rolled out almost 12 days before the 6th of April 2015. It has been almost 1609 days since the feature first came into prominence and needless to say, the longest Snapchat streaks are almost just as long.
Maintaining a Streak
How do you maintain a streak, you might ask. As the Snapchat makers clearly defined while rolling out the new feature, the makers of Snapchat clearly defined the rules for keeping a streak alive. To start the Streak, you and a Snapchat Friend must Snap, not Chat, each other within 24 hours for at least three consecutive days.
Once you’ve done this, a fire emoji will appear next to the friend’s name, along with the number of days you’ve been on a Snapstreak. And that is how you start a streak. As long as you keep snapping each other within 24 hours, the streak keeps on increasing.
The Longest Streaks Until Today
After clarifying with various sources, the current record holders for he longest streak ever are as follows –
- FRANCESCA AND RACHEL, 1601+ DAYS
- JOSIE & M, 1550+ DAYS
- JAYDEN AND ASHLEY, 1544+ DAYS
- MARY AND ELISA, 1542+ DAYS
- SARAH AND PATRICK, 1541+ DAYS
- ANDREW AND AMBER, 1526+ DAYS
- SEAN AND MIKE, 1514+ DAYS
- Haley and Eleanor, 1507+ days
Needless to say, there are many more like these who deserve to be on the list. However, this is the most comprehensive and assuredly true list we were able to get after cross-referencing all the claims and viewing certain screenshots as well.
One of the most important features of Snapchat and also a prime candidate to understand the importance it has amongst its customers and users is the horde of emojis the app possesses.
Let’s talk about all the different emojis Snapchat has to offer. We are pretty sure you might know the meaning of most of them either.
If you have ever reached the 100 day streak milestone, you might be well aware about the 100 emojis you get as a result of your loyalty and hard work. This is what you unlock when you maintain a streak for a minimum of 100 days straight.
The yellow heart appears alongside the contact you have been snapping the most and so have they.
The Red Heart appears alongside the contact when you have been maintaining the yellow heart for a minimum of 2 weeks.
What is the Snapchat Streak Limit?
Now, this is one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to Snapchat Streaks. There is absolutely no limit or at least has not been mentioned by the company until this point almost 4 years after the feature first rolled out, But even still, sky is NOT the limit.
The maximum snap streak that could be had can obviously not be greater than the number of days the streak feature has been active.
This still doesn’t put a cap on what the score could be. As long as the company is active and its users using the platform diligently, there is no way the score could ever come to rest. As of today, 20th of August 2019, however, 1609 is the limit.
So that was all about Snapchat and the snap streak feature within the app. For more information on the social media giant and any other application or platform write to us and subscribe to our blog.
