Snapchat is a popular app known for its fun and sometimes confusing symbols. One of these symbols is the purple circle. You might have noticed a purple circle around someone’s little Bitmoji on Snapchat. If you’ve seen it on Snapchat and are wondering what it means, you’re not alone. This blog will explain what the purple circle on Snapchat is all about. Whether you’re a regular Snapchat user or have just started using this app, this blog will help you understand this symbol, and what it means when you see it in Quick Add.
First, it’s important to know that the little human emoji you see on Snapchat is called Bitmoji. You can make your own Bitmoji to look just like you using different clothes, hairstyles, and more. The Bitmoji is your digital character on Snapchat. You can use it to show your feelings, reactions, and personality.
Now, let’s talk about that purple circle. This circle isn’t always there; it appears when something specific happens. Here are the main times you’ll see the purple circle:
You’ll often see the purple circle in Quick Add. Quick Add is where Snapchat suggests people for you to add as friends. If you see a purple circle around someone’s Bitmoji, it means that person has uploaded a story on Snapchat in the last 24 Hours. You can only check that story after you have added that person to your friend list.
The blue circle can also show up in your chat list, where you talk to your friends. If your friend has uploaded a story, Snapchat might put a blue circle around their Bitmoji. This is to let you know that your friend has updated their story. You can directly tap the blue circle to view that story.
Snapchat also uses the purple circle to let you know when your friends have new Stories you haven’t seen yet. When you see the purple circle on your friend’s Bitmoji in the Discover section, it is to let you know that you have some Stories to catch up on. This helps you keep up with what your friends are sharing.
When you go to the Stories section on Snapchat, you might notice some friends and even people you haven’t added yet have purple circles around their profile pictures. If you spot a purple circle with a lock icon next to it, it means you’ve been added to someone’s private story.
No, if someone has blocked you then you can not see the purple story ring on their Bitmoji, because you will be not able to see their profile.
Like the Red Heart ❤️ and Blue Heart 💙, the Purple Heart emoji 💜 is often used to symbolize love, support, strong connections, and admiration for things associated with the color purple. It holds a special meaning when referring to the Purple Heart medal given by the U.S. Armed Forces and is also a favorite among fans of the K-pop boy band BTS.
When you see someone’s Snapchat story a gray circle appears on the Bitmoji of that person. The gray circle replaces the blue circle once you have viewed the story of your friend on Snapchat.
