How to Text Chat in Snapchat

Snapchat is a text messaging app that allows users to text, send pictures and videos, and more. One of the most appealing things about Snapchat is the fact that pictures disappear after being opened and viewed. For new users that do not yet know how to text chat in Snapchat, simply follow these few short steps.

1. Opening the app- Tap the Snapchat icon on your mobile device in order to open up the Snapchat app.

2. Recipient selection- Your friends will be seen in your feed, which is what is visible when you open the app. To select a friend to text chat with, simply swipe your finger to the right on the name of the friend you wish to text with.

3. Sending a chat- When you have opened up your friend’s chat window, begin entering your message. When you have finished entering the message, tap the Send button. Your friend will likely see a notification that you are texting to them. You can also send a Snap while you are texting. To do this, simply tap the yellow button next to the chat text box to take a Snap that will be sent to your friend.
