How To Change The Snapchat Icon If You Are Not On Snapchat+
If you’re not a Snapchat+ subscriber but you want to change your app icon it can be done with a workaround however it is a bit more tricky.
To change the Snapchat app icon without becoming a Snapchat+ subscriber follow these steps:
1. Download ‘X Icon Changer’
- If you’re using an Android device it can be downloaded on the Google Play Store here.
- If you’re using an iOS device it can be downloaded on the App Store here.
2. Open The X Icon Changer App & Search ‘Snapchat’
Then tap the Snapchat icon.
3. Select An Option
You will have three options:
- Library – this contains some of their own icons you can use as well as any images you may have previously used within the app.
- Photo – you can use your own photos to create an icon
- Apps – you can replace the Snapchat icon with the icon of any of your pre-existing apps (confusing but a good way of hiding Snapchat if you need to do that).
Choose the one that works for you and follow the steps in the app to set it up.
