  • You can mute a friend on Snapchat to get fewer notifications without unfriending the individual.
  • To disable message notifications, go to Chat Settings by tapping and holding the conversation you want to mute.
  • You can also mute someone’s Snapchat Stories and notifications through the Story Settings option.

Managing notifications from friends is always a bit of a balancing act; you want to stay connected, but you might not want to be inundated with their content every time they send you a message or post a story. 

Snapchat understands this and gives you multiple tools for muting people whom you might not want to hear from all the time. In fact, you can disable notifications for a friend’s messages, and separately mute someone’s Snapchat Stories, so they don’t pop to the top of your feed when they create or add to a story.
