What are Streak Emojis?

It is a default emoji set on Snapchat with shows streaks. There are a total three number of emojis that represent streaks. I’ll be covering it in a while. 

Types of Streak Emojis

Types of Streak Emojis
FireThis emoji represents that you and your friend are maintaining the game of streak by sending daily snaps.  In the beginning, you are not able to see any emoji next to the name of your friend. However, a fire emoji will appear after you send image streaks for three consecutive days. You will also find the number next to your friend’s name which shows the days you have maintained the streaks with your friend.  Keep in mind that to see the fire emoji you have to keep sending snaps regularly and the emoji will appear only when both of you are sending snaps.  To keep the chain of snaps active you must send a snap within 24 Hours or else the fire emoji will disappear.
Hourglass  This is another streak emoji which shows that the streak is about to end. This emoji gives a warning that if you or your friend won’t respond by sending snaps to each other you will break the streak. This emoji will only appear in case you or your friend haven’t shared a snap for more than 20 hours
HundredYou will only find this emoji next to your friend’s name after the streak number reaches 100. However, as long as this streak between you and your friend continues and the number of streaks increases you won’t be able to see an emoji of 100 next to your friend’s name.
