Meaning Behind the Grey X Next to a Name in Snapchat Conversation

The X icon appears next to users in your Snapchat conversation who are no longer your friends. It usually happens due to one of the following two reasons.

I) The person has removed you from their Snapchat friends list.  

II) You have accidentally removed the person from your Snapchat friends list.

You cannot send text messages or snaps to users with the X icon next to their names on your Snapchat conversation. Additionally, you will not receive any text messages or snap from them on Snapchat.

How to Remove the X Icon

You can remove the X icon from a person’s name in your Snapchat conversation by becoming friends with them again.

To remove the X icon:

I) Ensure that you have included the other person in your friends list on Snapchat.

II) Make sure the other person has included you in their Snapchat friends list. If you are not in their friends list, you can ask them to add you as a friend.

The grey icon will vanish once you become friends with the person on Snapchat. If the grey icon does not disappear immediately, close the Snapchat app and relaunch it. You will not find the grey icon next to that person’s name this time.
