The Red Heart emoji is basically an upgrade over the basic Yellow Heart, which appears next to your best friend. It’s also the precursor to the Pink Hearts emoji, rarest of all friend emojis. Keep the Red Heart active for at least six more weeks (for a total of two months straight) and the Red Heart will turn into Pink Hearts.

It’s worth mentioning that the Red Heart in Snapchat doesn’t have anything to do with snap streaks. Instead, it only has to do with the person you send the most snaps to and receive the most snaps from. Even if you accidentally break the snap streak with your friend, you’ll still keep your Red Heart. The only reason it will disappear is if you start sharing a lot of snaps with someone else — or if your friend starts doing the same.

If you see a Red Heart next to your friend in Snapchat, it means the two of you have been best friends for two weeks straight. Keep it up and you may even be able to reach the coveted Pink Hearts level.
