Have you ever wondered how to keep track of upcoming birthdays on Snapchat for Android? Well, look no further! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to see upcoming birthdays on Snapchat Android.

Step 1: Open Snapchat

First, open the Snapchat app on your Android device. If you haven’t already installed it, head over to the Google Play Store and download it.

Step 2: Login or Create an Account

If you already have a Snapchat account, simply enter your login credentials and tap on the “Log In” button. If not, click on “Sign Up” to create a new account.

Step 3: Access Your Profile

Once you are logged in, tap on your profile icon located at the top-left corner of the screen. This will take you to your profile page.

Step 4: Open Settings

In your profile page, look for the gear icon in the top-right corner and tap on it. This will open your Snapchat settings.

Step 5: Navigate to Birthday Settings

In the settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Birthday” option. Tap on it to access your birthday settings.


To ensure that others can see your birthday and receive notifications when it is approaching, make sure that your birthday is entered correctly in this section.

Step 6: Enable Birthday Party Icon

In the birthday settings, locate the “Birthday Party” option and toggle it ON. This will enable the birthday party icon visibility feature.


The birthday party icon appears next to a friend’s name when their birthday is approaching or on their actual birthday. It helps you remember to send them a special Snapchat message or snap!

Step 7: Return to the Camera Screen

To see upcoming birthdays, simply tap on the back arrow at the top-left corner of your screen until you reach the camera screen. This is where you can access your friends’ stories and snaps.

Step 8: View Upcoming Birthdays

Swipe right from the camera screen to access the Friends screen. Here, you will see a list of your friends, along with their Bitmoji icons and usernames.


Bitmojis are personalized avatars that Snapchat users can create. They often resemble the user and can help you quickly identify your friends in the app.

Step 9: Look for Birthday Party Icons

As you scroll through your friends’ list, keep an eye out for the birthday party icon next to their names. This indicates that their birthday is approaching or it’s already their special day!


You can tap on a friend’s name to view their profile, send them a snap, or chat with them directly.

Step 10: Send Birthday Wishes

If you see that one of your friends has a birthday coming up or it’s already their birthday, take this opportunity to send them a special Snapchat message or snap! Show them that you care by celebrating with them virtually.

  • Bold Tip: Add fun filters, stickers, or use Snapchat’s augmented reality lenses to make your snaps even more festive!
  • Underline Tip: Use Snapchat’s text tool to write a personalized birthday message on your snap.

And just like that, you’ve learned how to see upcoming birthdays on Snapchat for Android! With this feature enabled, you’ll never miss an opportunity to celebrate and show your friends some love on their special day. Happy snapping!
