How To Create Shortcuts On Snapchat For Friends & Groups

Available on Android and iOS, Snapchat is a social platform that allows users to send and receive text messages, stickers and Snaps. Thanks to the disappearing messages, Snapchat is very popular among kids and young adults worldwide. To help those who use the application daily, Snapchat released a feature called Shortcut in 2020.

Snapchat has released many new and intuitive features to enhance the user experience, such as the ability to change one's username after creating a Snapchat account and the new Director mode that allows users to create amazing videos. Further, Snapchat released a feature that enables users to start Shared Stories, allowing several users to collaborate and create content on the platform.

On Snapchat, users share Snaps daily. While it helps them stay in touch with their friends, it also creates Streaks, which is quite a thing among Snapchat users. More often than not, users screen the people with which they want to maintain a Streak and keep sending Snaps to them. However, among multiple contacts, it is very easy to miss someone while sending Snaps. Further, users might end up sending a Snap to someone by mistake. To tackle such problems, Snapchat provides a feature that allows users to group multiple users in a Shortcut and identify them with an emoji.

To create a Snapchat Shortcut, open the application and click a photo or video Snap. Next, tap on 'Sent To' at the bottom right corner, and on the next screen, tap on 'Send To ...' at the top, right next to the magnifying glass icon. A 'Create Shortcut' button will appear on the screen. Tap on the button and select friends who will be a part of the Shortcut (users can add groups to a Snapchat Shortcut as well). Next, tap on the 'Choose Emoji' button at the top and select an emoji to represent the Shortcut. Finally, when users are done adding members and selecting the emoji, they should tap on the 'Create Shortcut' button at the bottom.

Once users create a Snapchat Shortcut, they can use it to send Snaps to the people added to the Shortcut without having to select them separately. If users are a part of different social circles, they can create multiple Snapchat shortcuts by assigning different emojis. To create a second shortcut, users must select Shortcuts on the Snap sending screen and tap on 'New Shortcut' at the bottom. Then, users can add people to the Shortcut, as described above. Users can also delete a previously created Snapchat Shortcut by tapping on 'Shortcuts,' selecting the particular Shortcut, tapping on the three dots at the top right, and selecting 'Delete Shortcut.'
