What does the gold or yellow star emoji on Snapchat mean? Or how about the baby emoji? Snapchat has dropped some new emoji on users but not their meanings. Fortunately, we’ve come across some explanations. Check them out below.


In the last few days, you may have noticed that Snapchat has once again snuck in some new emojis which are now appearing next to your friends’ names. But, like the last several Snapchat emoji updates, they come with little to no explanation of their meaning. The new gold star and baby emoji are no exceptions as  they have plenty of people puzzled about what they might mean. We scoured the web for answers and finally ran across the meaning of the new emoji on a couple of forums. Those meanings are listed below along with the meanings for all the other new Snapchat emoji that have arrived in the last several months. Check them out!

So, as I mentioned above, both a baby emoji and a gold star emoji are now a part of Snapchat. According to the GetEmoji Snapchat emoji blog, these are what the latest friends lists emoji mean.

  • If a friend has the baby emoji next to their name,  it means they are a new friend.
  • If they have a gold star next to their name, it means they’ve recently had one of their Snapchats replayed by someone else.

What are replays? The latest versions of Snapchat provides the opportunity for users to replay a snap for a period of 24 hours after the first viewing. This can be done by going to Settings (small gear icon located top right) in the Snapchat app and tapping on Additional Services. Then,  you tap on the replay option. Once replay is enabled, you simply hold down on the snap you want to replay for a couple seconds. It will ask you if you want to replay it and you can.

So that’s what the gold star on Snapchat is all about. For the rest of the new Snapchat emoji meanings, check them out below.
