What Makes Your Snap Score Go Up by One (8 Ways to increase)

Snapchat is a great social media app, and as such, snap scores are a fancy way of telling your friends and other users how popular or ‘big’ you are on Snapchat.

It might even help you occasionally if you have a business, as a Snapchat account with a large snap score authenticates you. This article covers all the important things you need to know in order to gain snap scores easily!

What makes your snap score go up by one

Short answer: While all activities cumulatively make your snap score go up slowly, snaps are one of the easiest and direct ways to get snap scores, with each snap giving you one snap score.

There are a lot of activities you can use to make your snap score go up by one, such as the infamous snaps. However, while would be discussing those activities in detail, I would like to inform you that most cases would only ever grant you one snap score each time as an increment.

Your snap score

So do not expect your snap score to increase rapidly unless you have logged back into your Snapchat account after a long time, which gives you some amount of snap score as a welcome reward. The other methods to increase your snap score, we have mentioned in a separate header!

How much does your snap score go up per snap

With each snap you send and receive, be it from anyone, your snap score would always goes up by one. There are no exceptions to this and no matter what you do, the process of getting your snap score to increase by sending and receiving snaps is painstakingly hard.

However, there are things you could do to make it much easier. While you would not be able to get more than one snap score increment with each snap, you can send and receive multiple snaps in a day, thus increasing the overall range of snap score increments.

Also, constantly sending and receiving snaps with a ‘best friend’ or a popular friend, who has a high snap score will result in a faster increment of snap score as well, ultimately helping you with the issue.

Does your snap score increase with chats

Yes, your snap score increases whenever you are chatting, interacting with your friends, sharing media or other forms of data, and watching their snaps.

If you do not send snaps on a regular basis or do not receive many of them, chatting is a good way to increase your snap score. As long as you have a bunch of close friends who you talk a lot with and occasionally share snaps with, your snap score would keep on increasing.

This keeps getting better with improvement in the ‘status’ of the friend. A friend labeled best friend, for example, would provide more snap score per chat compared to a newly added friend.

You can also try adding a lot of friends in order to increase your snap score further. Thus, chatting happens to be one of the easiest ways to earn a snap score on Snapchat.

How to increase your snap score

Method 1- Frequent use of Snapchat

The more you use Snapchat, the more you would be able to gain a snap score. Since Snapchat offers no exact way of knowing what criteria it uses to allot each snap score, it is best to use Snapchat as much as you can, including all its features.

Method 2- Regular sending of snaps

Snaps are one of the core elements of Snapchat. If you have been an avid user of Snapchat, you must have been used to sending snaps on a regular basis.

Since they are one of the most important things in Snapchat, it makes sense that there is an allotment of one snap point for each snap sent. This means you can easily increase your snap score by sending regular snaps to your friends on Snapchat.

Method 3- Regularly opening other’s snaps

Sending snaps is not enough, you must receive and open other’s snaps too in order to increase your snap score faster than normal. The more you open snaps, the higher your snap score gets.

Do also keep in mind that if you are maintaining a snap streak with someone, the snap scores will rise even faster.

Method 4- Adding stories on a constant basis

Adding stories has been a common thing for all social apps out there, from WhatsApp to Facebook, and Instagram. Snapchat is no different and has provided us with the stories feature to keep your friends and people around the world amused with your creative stories.

The more stories you add, the higher the chances of earning snap scores, which would ultimately lead to a higher snap score for your Snapchat account.

Method 5- Using the ‘Browse’ section to watch Snapchat videos

Craving Instagram Reels or YouTube Shorts on Snapchat? Perhaps you got bored of Instagram Reels? While Snapchat provides videos that would hook you on just like the Reels do, we have also made a guide to help you with hiding Reels on Android and iOS.

By going to the ‘Browse’ section and watching the videos that are usually recommended based on your watching preference, you can gradually earn a good snap score. Although one cannot be sure of the exact videos you need to watch and how much snap score it would provide you with.

Method 6- Add more friends on Snapchat

Adding friends is the essence of Snapchat. If you have not added friends on Snapchat, add away! Even if you already have a tonne of friends, a little bit more won’t hurt.

Snapchat is an app that is entirely based on conversations with friends, and through media. So no wonder friends are an essential part of it. The more friends you have, the easier your snap score climbs.

Not to mention that more friends means more people to send snaps to, and more people to receive snaps from and converse with, all of which help in increasing your snap score as well.

Method 7- Maintain Streaks

Streaks are a unique feature on Snapchat that rewards consistent communication between friends. Maintaining a streak by sending snaps back and forth for consecutive days can help boost your Snapchat Score.

Method 8- Keep quality in mind along with quantity

Often people send snaps and such without keeping the quality in mind. The most common example is a black screen snap with a date or day mentioned on it.

While there’s no doubt that it would help you increase the snap score, people have reported that a quality, creative, and meaningful snap helps in increasing snap scores much faster. Since the algorithm is not yet revealed by Snapchat, it is best to follow the best practices available.
