Birthdays are special, but they’re even more special when shared with those who are near and dear to you. Today Snapchat launched Birthdays Mini to make it fun and easy to remember and celebrate your Snapchat friends’ birthdays! You can enjoy personal greetings and birthday messages from your friends — all inside of that.
See a list of upcoming and recent birthdays, as well as birthdays organized by Zodiac Sign. Wish your friends a happy birthday with unique stickers and fun Lenses to commemorate their big day! You can even countdown your own birthday, right down to the second!
Only your friends who have opted in to have their birthday seen on Snapchat will be included in Birthdays Mini – we do not display your friends’ birth year or age, nor do we display yours (this information is only visible to you).
Built by Snap, Birthdays Mini is available globally starting today. You can find the Mini behind the rocket icon in Chat or through the Search bar. For more ways to celebrate your friends, check out our other Minis and Games for fun ways to create shared social experiences together on Snapchat.
Snapchat is an American multimedia instant messaging app and service developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc. One of the principal features of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are usually only available for a short time before they become inaccessible to their recipients. The app has evolved from originally focusing on person-to-person photo sharing to presently featuring users’ “Stories” of 24 hours of chronological content, along with “Discover,” letting brands show ad-supported short-form content.
It was created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University. It has become known for representing a new, mobile-first direction for social media, and places significant emphasis on users interacting with virtual stickers and augmented reality objects. As of July 2021, Snapchat had 293 million daily active users, a 23% growth over a year.
