What Does Snapchat’s “Other Snapchatters” Mean?

Here are some reasons why you see other snap chatters on your Snapchat.

You can determine whether you wish to add these “Other Snapchatters” as friends to your account by following the steps outlined below.

  1. Launch Snapchat and choose the Profile icon from the menu.
  2. Choose My story from the menu and then scroll through the number of viewers.
  3. Examine the list of “Other Snapchatters” to determine who you are not friends with.
  4. To view their profiles, tap on their names.

Your Account Is Public

If you see “other Snapchatters” when viewing who viewed your story, it indicates that a user or users you do not follow on the app viewed your story. You can learn more about these individuals by clicking on their names and viewing their profiles.

You Are No Longer a Friend

When your pals on Snapchat reads your story, it reveals their nickname beneath usual story viewers.

But if someone’s name displays as “Other Snapchatters,” then you are no longer pals on Snapchat. or  probably got unfollowed and are now an “other.”

To determine if you’ve been removed as a Snapchat friend, you can:

  1. Launch Snapchat and navigate to the chat section at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Locate your friend’s name on the displayed list.

They have probably unfriended you if their Snap status shows “Status is Pending,” and there is a grey arrow next to their name. Or you might check out their Snapchat rating. That’s the way it’s done, so here goes:

  1. Get on Snapchat and look for the person you think could have unfriended you.
  2. Next, click or tap on their name to access their profile.
  3. Determine if you have access to their Snapchat score. If you are unable to, they will stop following you on Snapchat.

What Is The Difference Between “Other Snapchatters “Story watchers may be grouped as – “+1 More”

Stories may be broken down into;

  1. Friends in common on the platform
  2. Other Snapchatters.”
  3. “+1 more

Those in the “+ 1 more” group, however, remain a mystery.

They aren’t connected to you in any way, yet the “+1 more” people will display in your “Recommended” section. Basically, you don’t know anybody in common. That person may be added you as a friend, but for some reason, you haven’t added them to yours.

As a result, if your profile is seen by the public, you will likely see the phrase “+ 1 more.”


It’s safe to say that Snapchat is full of emojis, symbols, and other abbreviations. A lot of the features and functionality of Snapchat might seem foreign at first.

You may have seen the phrase “Other Snapchatters” in your story watchers before. You should add the individual back on Snapchat if you haven’t already so that they can see your stories like everyone else.

However, you will need to wait for them to add you again if they deleted you as a friend or haven’t added you back on Snapchat.
