A user’s Snapchat Score is a good indicator of how active they are on the iOS and Android app. It’s a combination of how many Snaps someone has sent and received. Sometimes it’s possible to see the number immediately go up, but sometimes it gets stuck. Here’s the need-to-know about how often does Snapchat Score update.
When does my Snapchat Score refresh?
Snapchat Score refreshes each time a user sends or receives a Snap.
When a user looks at their own score, it should immediately increase when a Snap is sent or received. For those looking at a friend’s Snapchat Score, however, it can sometimes take hours or even days to update.
It seems that Snapchat adds a time buffer for when a publicly viewable score is refreshed. This helps protect each user’s online activity, as an increasing Snapchat Score indicates that the person is online.
Sometimes the app will have to be closed and reopened for the Snapchat Score to update. This can occur on both iOS and Android.
The Snapchat Score not refreshing “error” appears to be intentional by the app developer. There’s no official messaging acknowledging the issue and it’s been happening for months.
With the app receiving constant updates, it’s possible that the devs will increase the Snapchat Score refresh time. For now, it’s just a waiting game. It might takes hours or days until the score refreshes, but it will happen eventually. Try to forget about it for now.
