How to Manage a Snapchat Group Chat

Unlike traditional messaging platforms, Snapchat does not give group creators additional options. In fact, you can’t remove anyone from a group or delete a group, even if you are the creator of the Snapchat group. Having said that, what can you do to manage your Snapchat group:

Add New Members to a Snapchat Group

If you are thinking of adding new members to your Snapchat group, there are two ways to do it – by adding to the contact list and by inviting link. Let’s learn how these two methods work here:

1. To add a member from your contacts list, open group settings by tapping on the profile icon, tap “Add Members“, and pick the contacts from the list that appears now.

2. You can also share an invite link of the group with friends and family. Here’s how that works. Open Snapchat group settings, tap “Invite Via Link”, followed by “Invite” in the pop-up window. Then, you can share the Snapchat group chat invite link via your favorite messaging app like WhatsApp.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How to remove someone from a Snapchat group?

Q: How many users can I add to a Snapchat group?

According to Snapchat’s support post, you can add up to 100 users to a single Snapchat group.
