What is the Best Friends feature?

When the feature was part of the app it allowed users to see their friends’ best friends.

In Snapchat terms, this meant the people they were connecting with via the app the most.

The Best Friends feature was taken off the app – possibly after causing issues between friends.

A picture was posted on Twitter at the beginning of November – which has now been deleted – that seemed to suggest the feature was making a comeback.

When was the feature removed from the app?

It was pulled from the social media app in January 2015.

It was deemed intrusive as it allowed users to see who those they followed connected with the most.

If someone snapped you three times, regardless of if you replied or not, their name would appear as one of your three best friends.

What is the latest on a comeback?

A picture suggesting the feature was returning sent Twitter into meltdown as users panicked their habits would be there for all to see.

But it was soon debunked as a fake.

Worried users in need of more confirmation can visit the Snapchat support page, which has a Best Friend section.

It states no one else can see the list of Best Friends.
