Are you tired of sending individual snaps to your friends on Snapchat? Why not create a group chat and keep everyone in the loop with just one message?

Creating a group chat on Snapchat is easy and convenient, especially if you’re using an Android device. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Launch Snapchat

To create a group chat on Snapchat, begin by launching the app on your Android device. Look for the yellow icon with a white ghost in the middle and tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Access Your Chat Screen

Once Snapchat is open, you’ll be taken to the camera screen by default. To access your chat screen, swipe right from the camera screen or tap on the speech bubble icon located at the bottom left corner of your screen.

Step 3: Start a New Chat

On the chat screen, you’ll see all your recent conversations. To start a new group chat, tap on the new message icon located at the top right corner of your screen. It looks like a square with a pencil inside.

Step 4: Select Contacts

In the “To” field of your new message screen, start typing the names of contacts you want to add to your group chat. As you type, Snapchat will suggest contacts based on your input. Tap on each contact to add them to your group.


If you have a long list of contacts or can’t find someone using their name, try using their username instead. This will help narrow down the search results and find the right person.

Step 5: Create Your Group

Once you’ve added all the desired contacts, tap on the “Chat” button located at the bottom right corner of your screen. This will create a new group chat with the selected contacts.

Step 6: Customize Your Group Chat

After creating your group chat, you can customize it to make it more personal. Tap on the group name at the top of your chat screen to access the group settings. Here, you can change the group name, add a group photo, or even leave the group if desired.


To add more members to an existing group chat, tap on the group name and then tap on “Add Members.” This way, you can keep expanding your group and include more friends.

Step 7: Start Chatting!

Now that your group chat is set up and ready to go, it’s time to start chatting! Simply type your message in the text field at the bottom of your screen and tap on the send button (the blue arrow) when you’re ready to send it.


You can also send snaps directly to your group chat by tapping on the camera icon next to the text field. This allows you to share photos and videos with all members of the group simultaneously.


Creating a group chat on Snapchat for Android is a great way to stay connected with multiple friends at once. By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to set up a new group chat in no time. So gather your favorite people together and start sharing moments through Snapchat’s convenient group feature!

I hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of creating a group chat on Snapchat. Happy snapping!
