Adding Contacts to Snapchat from Your Phone


Communication is the chief commander of a progressive society. Without communication nothing is possible. It is possible only when we are in touch with two or more than two people. We have many contact numbers of different people, and to communicate with them we call or message them when there is any need. From our Android and iOS devices, we can add contacts on Snapchat. Below is the guidance to add contacts from your phone:

  1. Swipe below anywhere on the Snapchat camera screen. It will launch your Snapchat profile screen, where your Snapcode will be visible.
  2. Hit “My Friends” below of the screen. It will launch a new screen with your current Snapchat friends.
  3. Hit the “Contacts” tab. It will display a list of people in your phone’s contacts list that has their phone number associated with their Snapchat account.
  4. When you launch this tab for the first time, you may be prompted by Snapchat to allow access to your device’s contacts. It will allow the Snapchat to check which of your contacts have their phone numbers associated with Snapchat profiles.Give Snapchat access to your device’s contacts (if prompted).
  5. Scroll through the menu and hit “+’ or “+Add” to add people to your friends’ list. The person you will add will be added to your friends’ menu and notified that you have added them. They’ll be then able to add you back if they want.
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the list to see contacts that don’t have Snapchat. These are all of your contacts that either don’t have Snapchat, don’t have their phone number linked to their Snapchat account.
  7. Before you can start communicating, you may be required to be added back by the person you added to your friends’ list.Wait to get added back. It depends on the other person’s privacy settings. Your message will be stuck at “Pending” until you get added back.
