If you got Snapchat’s latest update, chances are, you noticed a new hourglass or timer emoji next to some of your friends’ names. But what does it mean? According to Snapchat’s official support page on Twitter, the new hourglass emoji lets you know if your snapstreak is in danger of ending.



Last spring, Snapchat first introduced its cryptic friend emoji, without letting any of us know what they mean. Over time, they’ve added new puzzlers like the gold star, baby emoji or heart. Though they’ve usually been pretty secretive about revealing new emoji meanings, they let this one out pretty early.
