A rumour has been circulating on social media that Snapchat is getting rid of Snapscore, but is this actually true?
Snapchat has a history of removing features from the app to focus on products that are more beneficial for creators and viewers. For instance, Snapchat removed games from the app in February 2023 and later introduced ChatGPT-powered My AI chatbot into the platform.
Given this history, it's not entirely unreasonable to think that they might consider eliminating Snapchat score. So, let's find out whether there's any substance to these rumours.
Is Snapchat getting rid of Snapscore?
No, Snapchat is not getting rid of Snapscore.
The rumour that Snapchat is going to remove Snapscore seems to have gained momentum after a TikTok video on the topic accumulated over two million views. In response to a tweet addressing the video, Snapchat clarified that it is just a baseless rumour.
In other words, Snapscore is not going anywhere. And in our opinion, it is highly unlikely that they will ever remove the Snapscore feature. Do you want to know why?
Well, the Snapscore is computed using a unique equation or algorithm, requiring no direct involvement from the Snapchat team. In other words, the platform does not need to allocate resources for its operation.
Typically, Snapchat removes features that consume resources without generating significant returns. Given the Snapscore algorithm is self-sufficient, there is no compelling reason for Snapchat to remove it.
So, you can rest assured that the popular Snapscore feature is here to stay.
What is Snapscore on Snapchat?
Snapscore on Snapchat is a numerical representation of your engagement with the app.
Your Snapscore is the sum of all snaps (photos and videos) sent and received, plus a few other factors such as Stories you've posted and other in-app activities. The more you use Snapchat and engage with others on the app, the higher your Snap Score will be.
The Snapscore is displayed next to your username and is visible to your friends on Snapchat. It's important to note that your Snapscore is not an indicator of your popularity, but rather a reflection of your activity and engagement within the Snapchat app.
