With our busy schedules of life and hectic days, we often forget to celebrate the special days of our loved ones. Humans do have a tendency to forget things when they’re occupied with something. 

Luckily we have Snapchat, which sends us a notification and reminds us about our friend’s birthday, or even if we miss the notification, it adds a little cake emoji in front of their names to tell us. Pretty cool, isn’t it? 

But what about when you know someone’s birthday is coming but are unaware of the exact date? How do you see birthdays on Snapchat? Well, that’s what we are going to find out today.

How to Set Up Your Birthday on Snapchat?

Well, of course, you want your birthday to be remembered too, but what if you haven’t set up your birthday on your Snapchat profile and your friends cannot get your special day’s notification? I got you; here’s how you can add your birthday on Snapchat:

  • Launch your Snapchat app and visit your profile by clicking on your Bitmoji. 
click on your Bitmoji
  • There, click on ‘Birthday.’
click on the birthdays
  • From there, you can change the date of your birthday or add it if it isn’t already there. 
  • Once filled in, tap on ‘Continue.’ 
  • Then, you will receive a confirmation message, check your birthdate, and click on ‘Ok.’ 

Here, you can also choose to click on the ‘Birthday Party’ option so that it will display a cake emoji next to the user’s name on their birthday. 

Tip: Whenever there’s someone’s birthday, you will be able to send them an extraordinary streak that features some enhanced birthday filters. Not just filters, you will also get some extra stickers to decorate your snap the way you want. 

How to Add an Astrological Sign to Your Snapchat Profile?

I’m sure you know that Snapchat creates astrological signs based on the user’s birthday. So these Astrological profiles use the birthday of every individual and assign the zodiac signs to them automatically. Well, not just that, along with assigning the Astrological sign, it also gives them a personality analysis based on it. You can also view your astrological compatibility with each of your friends. 

But remember that this feature will only work when both parties have enabled this feature to view each other’s astrological compatibility. 


Ans: This happens only when a specific person hasn’t enabled the feature Snapchat to show their birthday on Snapchat. 

Ans: If it’s an iOS device, then the steps stay the same for all iOS devices, and if it’s an Android device, then the same goes for all Android devices. 

Ans: Snapchat does send a notification on someone’s birthday, but that person has to be on your best friends list.
