Whether you're counting down to a special occasion, a big sale, or an exciting event, you can make a countdown on Snapchat to share the anticipation with your friends and followers.

Snapchat provides a variety of methods for setting up a countdown, from a specialized countdown feature to thematic countdown lenses tailored for celebrating milestones like birthdays or ushering in the New Year.

Our guide will delve into the options Snapchat offers for creating countdowns. But, before that, you might want to check out how to see who rewatched your story.

How to make a countdown on Snapchat

Snapchat allows you to create an event in the app and invite other friends to join in counting down the days to that event. This is useful when you're planning a group activity, such as a birthday party, and want to build excitement among your friends.

To make a countdown on Snapchat, follow these steps:

  • Go to your profile by tapping on your Bitmoji
  • Scroll down to "Countdowns"
  • Tap "+ New" and add a title
  • Share it with friends by inviting them to the countdown.
  • Choose the date and time you’re counting down to
  • Tap "Create"

Note that Snapchat's countdown feature doesn't display animations upon reaching the final count nor does it count down to the exact second. Therefore, it may not deliver the dramatic flair or precise countdown experience some users might be looking for.

How to get the birthday countdown filter on Snapchat

When you're looking to add a birthday countdown to your Snapchat stories the Birthday Countdown Lens offered by Snapchat is an ideal choice. This filter allows you to create a countdown for your own birthday as well as the birthdays of your friends.

To access the birthday countdown filter on Snapchat, simply search for "Birthday Countdown Lens" within the lens gallery. For those using Snapchat Web or looking for a more direct route to the lens, it can be swiftly accessed through this link.

Does Snapchat have a countdown sticker?

No, Snapchat does not have a countdown sticker akin to Instagram's offering. While it has countdown filters/lenses tailored for specific celebrations like birthdays, New Year's, or Christmas, it lacks a versatile, general-purpose countdown sticker.
