Snapchat Users Reviews on latest Updates:


Maitreyi: It's a really good app.. It works perfectly except when I make a video with some filter (specially tiara one) the video becomes slow and that irritates me a lot. Otherwise it's kinda the best app... ❤❤

Elyasi: Good and Bad So first good is that the filters are working just fine. First bad is the video taking because every time I take a video on my android it doesn't record all the way around the circle. It only works for apple. And the quality of it needs to be fixed please as well as the video taking. Also some of my saved things aren't really saving.... I check on the "BackUp Now" but it's nothing so please also fix that😕😕

Cynthia: I love how easy it makes it to be in the moment with Family far away. My sister is the main reason I use it and it makes me happy to feel so close with the use of this! I also like that you can be silly and do video calls!

Teresa: Honestly...  why it takes so long for Android version to get the same updates that iPhone has. IPhone can have up to 3 filters on a pic, while android only has 2. And iPhone can record up to ten snaps in a row while android can only record 1. It's really not fair. Pl3z f1x th1s. (Please fix this.) Let's get it together android. Don't let the iPhones win.

Tahlia: Strongly against the fact that only IOS users can get longer video access. I own a Samsung s7 edge and cannot use this new feature. Please make it available for every user.

Reem: I love Snapchat , but it's unfair that ios/iphone has the better thing than Android/Samsung. I really want to have 60 second videos and more things. May you update Android like ios.

Sergio: It's alright... Definitely optimized for Apple which I understand but like, seriously, a lot of people that want to use Snapchat are on Android... So my message to the developers, please stop being so bias towards Apple... Its also full of bugs, it shuts down for the stupidest reasons, like I send a few emojis and then the whole. App doesn't work after that... Please fix the bugs... Other than that good social media platform 👍

August: Updates do not work. I try to reverse when i take a video, but the icon is not there. Nor is the others. Even though i put in on in the settings. But still everything else works fine.

Tomesha: First thanks for the update on What Does Hourglass Emoji Mean on Snapchat? You all update this app almost every day, but it never stops glitching. I hate the fact that you all keep changing features everyday. That's why everyone is leaving you all for Instagram💯.

John: Needs to get the longer snap update I see people with iPhones using it and it makes me want to have it sooo bad why do the updates take longer than get to android.

Amand: Pretty disgusted. Several known app issues and instead of fixing the issue, you add more bells and whistles. You're going to lose customers.

Kelcy: I love it. Super fun and handy if u don't have a friends number. Sometimes it crashes tho and if u have an update make sure it is for all devices not just the iPhone.

Jermaine: This is the best app that i ever have. I love it. But I don't know how to record a continuous snap it always stop at 10 seconds. Like I said i love to use snapchat but i only need help with one issue.

Klosh: I think that this app is very very good and most people in the world will get you that will all the people I know use this app and so far I know they like it and I like it so you guys should update it and make new filters and update does this is a very good app and it should be the best.

Cabrera: The notification setting aren't all checked so I check em but after I get out of dose setting they uncheck automatically please fix.

Brittney: It's a cool and creative way for teens to talk and have fun, there are some bugs with crashing, not loading, I think Snapchat should add a game you can play with ur friends would put it at the top. But overall it's a good app just needs some work. Thanks for the meaning on Hourglass Emoji Mean.

Ferris: I think the app is amazing! But still it has some issue's. For example, the 60second record is only for ios users. I think the app treats ios way better than android! This is a problem you've probably already heard of, but still I'd like to remind you to the fact that android users should not be 2th place! I think android and ios should be treated the same! Same functions, same features! Just let snapchat be the same on each and every device! A second problem of this app is the amount of times this app crashes. It crashes almost 5 times a day and its driving me crazy! So im asking nicely, please solve this problems as soon as possible! Without this problems this app would get a 5 star rating from me! Thank you for your time and have a nice day!

That conclude on Snapchat Hourglass Emoji  meaning!

A star next to someone's name meant they had sent a snap to someone that was replayed. Hourglass means your streak is about to end. Not sure if they got rid of the star, but the hourglass does not mean the same thing as it.
