What Does The Grey Arrow On Snapchat Mean?

Snapchat is one of the most private social media apps available to us, however it makes understanding Snapchat just a little more confusing. All of the icons have different meanings, and we're honing in on one in particular: What does the grey arrow on Snapchat mean?


According to Snapchat Support, the full grey arrow on Snapchat means that either a friend request is still pending, or a friend has removed/blocked you from their Snapchat account. (Ouch)

An empty grey arrow may mean that a pending friend request either has expired or was denied.
