What Is The Snapchat Birthday Mini Feature?

Snapchat’s Birthday Mini feature is a feature that makes it easier for you to remember the birthdays of your friends. This is a similar feature to that of Facebook.

The birthdays will be listed in the Birthday’s Mini lists in order of the closest birthday to the farthest one.

The Birthday Mini feature displays the birthday based on the date of birth or zodiac sign the user entered when creating their Snapchat Account.

When it is the person’s birthday, a little birthday cake emoji appears next to the person’s Snapchat username and reminds you to wish Happy Birthday on that day, despite your busy schedule.

You can send them a snap, a chat, or even a happy birthday sticker to celebrate them.

On that day, you will see custom-made stickers of you and your friend’s bitmoji, which you can also use to make your friend happy.

However, you have the option to decide whether or not you want to display your birthday on your Snapchat profile.

Keep in mind that you need to have the Snapchat App to be able to view Snapchat’s, Birthday Mini. The feature is not available on the web.
