Swipe right on a friend’s name in your Snapchat feed to start chatting! You’ll see a ‘?’ which means that your friend has just entered the Chat. If you see a dot at the bottom of your Chat screen it means your friend is here in the Chat.
When you leave the Chat screen, messages viewed by both you and your friend will be cleared — but either of you can always press and hold to save a message you’d like to keep!
Pro Tip: Chat isn’t just for texting — tap the phone to call or the camera to video chat your friend! Want to send your friend a quick Snap? Just tap :
