What Does Pending Mean On Snapchat:

These are the following things that might mean:

1. Message Not Delivered

If you see a message status as “Pending” on Snapchat, it means that the message you sent has not been delivered to the recipient yet. This could happen due to various reasons, such as network issues, the recipient’s device being offline, or a temporary glitch in the Snapchat app.

So, if you come across a pending message, you should wait for some time and check your internet connection before attempting to resend the message.

2. Friend Request Not Accepted

When this term is used in the context of a friend request, it signifies that the recipient has not accepted your friend request yet. Due to privacy settings or other reasons, the recipient might choose to leave your friend request pending.

This can happen if the person is not actively using Snapchat or if they are selective about accepting friend requests. In such cases, you must be patient and respect the recipient’s decision to accept or decline your request.

3. Story Pending Approval

When you find the word “Pending” about a story, it means that your story is awaiting approval from Snapchat’s content moderators.

For this reason, it is crucial to ensure that your story adheres to Snapchat’s community guidelines and terms of service to avoid any potential violations. Now, all you can do is wait until your story gets reviewed and approved for it to be visible to your friends and followers.
