How to Get Rid of the Yellow Heart on Snapchat?

Do you want to escape from the Yellow Heart on Snapchat? It’s simple – stop talking to someone with a Yellow Heart next to their name.

If you didn’t know, a Yellow Heart next to a friend’s name on Snapchat means you and that person as Best Friends on the platform.

You’re best friends! You’re talking to them more than you do with any other friend on your list. And they’re doing the same.

To get rid of the Yellow Heart, stop talking with that friend for 2 days, and the emoji will disappear by itself.

But there’s something else you should know. Read below to learn more about the Yellow Heart!

When Does the Yellow Heart Appear?

To eliminate this emoji, it’s important to know what makes it appear. Snapchat has an emoji system in place to reward social interaction.

One of these emojis is the Yellow Heart attached to two people’s names on Snapchat. You two are Best Friends because you send them the most messages.

However, this is a reciprocal relationship. The Yellow Heart can disappear when either of you stops sending messages to another person.

If you don’t want the other person to notice that you’re becoming cold, don’t stop sending them messages immediately.

Instead, do it gradually so they don’t notice it. The Yellow Heart will only disappear if the Snapchat algorithm identifies that you aren’t talking to the other person as much as with your other friends.

If your conversations are approximately equal between your Snapchat friends, the Yellow Heart will not appear.

Turn a Yellow Heart into a Red Heart

If you don’t like how the Yellow Heart looks, then maybe you like the Red Heart? The Yellow Heart isn’t the end of your friendship relationship on Snapchat.

If you maintain a Yellow Heart for more than two weeks, it transforms into a Red Heart to signify the “bestest friends“.

This is one way of getting rid of the Yellow Heart that you haven’t thought about, right? If you don’t like the Heart emoji, stick to the first solution I told you about.

Stop talking to that friend as much, and the heart will go away by itself. But if the other person keeps talking to you, they’ll still have the heart on their account.

In time, you’ll get a Smirking Smiling face, which means you’re not returning the favor of talking to them as much as they talk to you. Cheeky on your part, but it gets the job done.

Conclusion

In short, if you don’t like the Yellow Heart, you can get rid of it by not talking to your Best Friend for several days.

The Snapchat algorithm will notice this and take away the Yellow Heart. Depending on how the other person acts, you may get a Smirking Smiling Face or a simple Smile.
