How To See Friends Location On Snapchat

Hello there! So you want to know how to see your friends’ location on Snapchat, huh? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Snapchat has a feature called “Snap Map” that allows you to see the location of your friends, and it’s pretty cool. Let me show you how to use it!

Step 1: Update Snapchat

In order to access the Snap Map feature, you need to make sure that you have the latest version of Snapchat installed on your device. If you haven’t done so already, head over to your app store and update the app.

Step 2: Enable Location Services

Next, make sure that location services are enabled for Snapchat on your device. This will allow the app to access your location and show it to your friends. To do this:

  1. Open your device’s settings.
  2. Scroll down and find the “Privacy” or “Location” section.
  3. Look for “Location Services” and tap on it.
  4. Scroll down and find Snapchat in the list of apps.
  5. Make sure that the option is set to “While Using the App” or “Always”.

Enabling location services is important as it allows Snapchat to determine your location and show it on the Snap Map.

Step 3: Access the Snap Map

Now that you have updated Snapchat and enabled location services, it’s time to access the Snap Map. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Snapchat app on your device.
  2. On the camera screen, pinch your fingers together or swipe down from the top of the screen. This will open the Snap Map.

Once you have opened the Snap Map, you will see an interactive map with various Bitmoji icons representing your friends. Each icon represents a friend who has also enabled location services on their Snapchat. Pretty neat, right?

Step 4: Explore the Snap Map

Now that you are on the Snap Map, you can explore it and see where your friends are. You can zoom in and out of the map, drag it around to see different locations, and even search for specific friends.

When you tap on a friend’s Bitmoji icon, you can see more details about their location, such as the city they are in. However, please note that you will only see your friends’ locations if they have chosen to share their location with you. If a friend has not enabled location services or has chosen to keep their location private, you will not be able to see their location on the Snap Map.

Step 5: Interact with Friends on the Snap Map

Now that you know how to see your friends’ locations on Snapchat, you can also interact with them on the Snap Map. Here are a few fun things you can do:

  • Send a message: If you see that a friend is nearby, you can send them a quick message or a snap to let them know.
  • Create a group chat: If you and your friends are all in the same location, you can create a group chat directly from the Snap Map and start a conversation.
  • Share your own location: If you want your friends to see where you are, you can also share your own location on the Snap Map. Simply tap on your Bitmoji icon and choose the “Share My Location” option.

Remember, it’s important to respect your friends’ privacy and only interact with them on the Snap Map if they are comfortable with it.


And that’s it! Now you know how to see your friends’ location on Snapchat using the Snap Map feature. It’s a great way to stay connected and see what your friends are up to, but remember to use it responsibly and respect everyone’s privacy. Happy snapping!
