Snapchat Username Change Update
Very happy news for all Snapchatters! Yes, Snapchat announced a new update that will allow Snapchat users to change their usernames without deleting their accounts and without any impact on your friends’ list, Snap code, Snap score, Memories, etc. This is the news all Snapchat users expect many long years and many users also send a Snapchat username change petition online and trend on Twitter.
From February 23, 2022, onwards Snapchat users can change their username on both Android and iOS apps. Previously, users could only change their display name, but their username had to be the same.
Snapchat is a very popular social media platform mainly among young people, with millions of daily active users and billions of snaps being shared every day. This Snapchat app has been developed over the idea of disappearing messages, which turned out to be more successful, so other top social media platforms also implemented this feature. To create an account on Snapchat, users have to create a snap username. The username is a unique identifier that helps Snapchat to recognize a user.
However, users should keep in mind that they will only be able to change their Snapchat username once per year. Once you change your username, no one will be able to claim your old one, including you.

A few days back, Snap Inc announced that it’s partnering with Ticketmaster to launch a new way for users to discover live entertainment events within the Snap Map. The new “Ticketmatcher Mini” available in the app will match users with events they might be interested in based on their preferences.
A Snapchat spokesperson told TechCrunch that this feature is already in very early beta for a small set of U.S.-based creators, but they plan to roll it out more widely to Snap Stars in the upcoming months. These advertisements will appear as mid-roll ads inside their stories, and the snap creator will earn a share of the ad revenue. That payout is determined by a payment formula, which weighs factors like posting frequency and audience engagement.
