Snapchat (and Snapchat+ for that matter) offers quite a few features to its users and it’s understandable if you’re not familiar with all of them. One feature, in particular, seems to have a function that doesn’t seem obvious at first glance. If you’ve ever looked at one of your Stories on Snapchat and noticed a pair of eyes emoji next to it and wondered what it meant, you’ve come to the right place.
- What do the eyes mean on a Snapchat Story?
- What is the Rewatch Indicator?
- How do I enable or disable the Rewatch Indicator feature?
In this guide, we’ll go over what that pair of eyes icon means in relation to your Snapchat Stories and take a closer look at the Snapchat feature it represents.
What do the eyes mean on a Snapchat Story?
Essentially, according to Snapchat’s Support guide on the matter, the pair of eyes emoji is an indicator that your friends have rewatched a given Story that you’ve posted. In fact, next to that pair of eyes should be a number that denotes the number of friends that rewatched a given Story.
It’s also worth noting that, in this case, the pair of eyes icon (and the feature they represent) is a Snapchat+ exclusive feature. And so if you’re seeing it, that’s because it’s a premium feature and it’s part of your Snapchat+ subscription.
What is the Rewatch Indicator?
So if that pair of eyes icon represents a feature, what is that feature? Well, it is a Snapchat+ exclusive feature that Snapchat calls “Rewatch Indicator.” This makes sense because it indicates how many of your friends have rewatched your Stories.
And in case you were wondering: No, the Rewatch Indicator doesn’t identify which friends rewatched a Story you posted and it also doesn’t tell you how many times the Story has been rewatched.
How do I enable or disable the Rewatch Indicator feature?
The Rewatch Indicator feature is optional. According to Snapchat, you can enable or disable it using the following method: Select the Snapchat+ membership card on your profile and then select the Story Rewatch Count toggle to enable or disable it.
