So, let's find out how to see the best friends list on Snapchat Plus.

How To See Best Friends List On Snapchat Plus

Snap's algorithm keeps track of how many snaps you send your friends daily, how many voice notes you share, if you have a snap streak, and stuff like that. It's pretty much like how Instagram order your followers list.

The algorithm calculates a friendship score based on your interaction with your friend. Your best friends list is generated and the friends are ranked according to the "friendship score."

To view best friends lists on Snapchat plus, here is what you need to do:

  • On the Snapchat app, swipe to the right or tap the Chat icon to access your chat.
  • Tap on the 3-dot icon and select Manage Friendships.
  • You will see your best friends' list under the section Best Friends.

Following the same steps, you can see your list of best friends on Snapchat as well. It is worth mentioning that Snapchat Plus allows you to pin one of your friends as your #1 Best Friend.

Speaking of best friends, are you aware that you can make a Snapchat group chat with all your best friends on the app? It is one of the new features and you should give it a try.

If you are a Snapchat Plus subscriber, there is an alternative way to see your best friends list. When you visit Friendship Profile, you will see a Best Friends or Friends badge with a gold ring around it.

"Best Friends" means that you’re one of each other’s eight closest friends, and "Friends" means that you’re one of their eight most intimate friends, but they’re not one of yours. You will also be able to see how close you are to them.

If you tap on the badge, it will show you which planet you are in their solar system. For example, if your friend is the Sun and you’re Earth in their solar system, you’re their third closest friend.
