What does the hourglass emoji mean on Snapchat
Hourglass is always associated with a time-out, whether hourglass also means time is running out? According to Snapchat’s support team, hourglass emoji appears next to your friend’s name if your Snapstreak is going to end soon. Snapstreak is a fire emoji, mean that both of you are sending snaps to each other recently. Hourglass appears when both of you are not sending snaps anymore, it’s something like a reminder that you must send another snaps to keep the Snapstreak or fire emoji.

If you have been sending snaps again to the friend who gets an hourglass emoji, we expect the hourglass emoji will be dissapear and the fire emoji or Snapstreak will keep on blazing alive. So the hourglass emoji meaning on Snapchat is a reminder that you are not sending snaps to your homies recently, and you must keep sending snaps (not chat, it will affect anything if you are sending chat) to each other to get rid of hourglass emoji.
