Snapchat Shortcuts not showing? Here’s what to do

  • Have you switched devices or updated OS? Snapchat locks certain features for 24 hours for security reasons, so wait and try the next day again.
  • Delete and reinstall Snapchat on your device.
  • Log out and log in again.

If nothing else works, try logging into a different device. After the 24-hour wait, add the Streaks shortcut and moves back to the original device.
