Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1. Can I use text instead of an emoji to name the Shortcut?

As of yet, you cannot use text abbreviations to name the Snapchat Shortcut because of the space restriction in the user interface of the Snapchat application. As this feature is intended to be a quick shortcut, I think remembering an emoji is easier instead of a textual name.

Q2. If I create a Snapchat Shortcut, will the people who are a part of it know about it?

No. This action is completely private and only known to you. The receiver shall receive the snap, media, etc. normally just like they used to obtain it earlier before the creation of this Shortcut.
