Add Friends on SnapChat with iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Rushell, Eng
Hi. You're watching VisiHow, and today I'm going to show you how to add friends on the SnapChat application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, let's unlock the phone by pressing the lock button on the right-hand side.
The phone can also be unlocked by pressing the home button, which is the big round button at the bottom of the screen.
This brings up the lock screen.
Swipe across and enter a passcode.
Alternatively, simply hold a finger onto the home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
At the home screen, find the SnapChat icon.
It is yellow with a white ghost in the center.
Tap the SnapChat icon once to open the application.
It automatically opens at the camera screen, giving us the option to take and send photos immediately.
We need to tap on the small white ghost in the middle of the screen at the top.
This will bring up the menu. This menu can also be accessed by swiping down from the top of the screen.
Tap on the middle option, "Add Friends".
There is the outline of a person and a plus sign on the left side.
Now, we have the option to "Add from Address Book", which is the second option, indicated by a little book icon on the left-hand side.
This means it will use the phone contacts to add people on SnapChat if they also have SnapChat. For this, your mobile number needs to be verified.
However, "Add by Username", which is the first option with the small magnifying glass on the left, is much easier.
Simply tap on "Add by Username", and type in a username using the keyboard that appears at the bottom of the screen.
As we begin typing a name, a plus sign in a box appears on the right-hand side.
This means there is an actual person with that username that can be added.
If several random letters are typed, we will see the plus sign has disappeared; therefore, this is not an actual username.
To clear the text, press the x at the top right corner of the screen.
Type again to search for someone else if desired.
When finished, press "Done" at the bottom right corner of the keyboard.
Tap on the purple arrow at the top left-hand corner to go back.
Continue until you reach the main SnapChat menu.
Swipe the menu up to return to Camera mode.
This is a VisiHow video, and I've just shown you how to add friends on the SnapChat application on the iPhone 6.
