What does “pending” mean on Snapchat?

If you see the word “pending” next to a message on Snapchat, it means the app is having trouble delivering the message.

A gray arrow also appears next to the word.

This usually means that you are not friends with the person you are trying to send the message to.

It could be a mistake on your behalf or your Snapchat friend deleted you or their entire Snapchat account.

Alternatively, the person may not have accepted your Snapchat friend request yet.

The pending message is actually a good way to tell if someone has unfriended you on Snapchat, as you don’t get direct notification of such actions.

There’s also a chance your message is “pending” because the app is buggy.

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling Snapchat if you want to double-check.

The “pending” gray arrow is also due to a user’s Snapchat settings.

If you’re sending a Snapchat to someone who allows messages from everyone, including strangers, you shouldn’t see the gray arrow.

You can still view someone’s public Snapchat content who isn’t your friend.

If you are still confused, try reaching your friend on another platform as they may have missed your original Snapchat friend request.
