Why can’t see a friend’s bitmoji on Snapchat:

There are the following reasons why you would not see a friend’s bitmoji on Snapchat:

1. Due to App Cache:

If you can’t see your friend’s Bitmoji on Snapchat, it might be due to a minor glitch. Glitches are very common and can be caused due to accumulated cache data. The old and deleted miscellaneous files get accumulated as cache data over time and need to be cleaned off to avoid glitches. If you have not recently cleaned off the cached data of the Snapchat application, the glitch may be caused due to it.

Due to App Cache

You need to delete the cache data of the Snapchat application from the Settings of your device so that the glitch gets fixed itself. You need not worry about losing your important Snapchat data, as only the preloaded and miscellaneous files are stored in the cache data. 

If you’re unable to see the Bitmoji icon of your Snapchat friends, you don’t have to assume that it’s because of any major issue. Clean the cache data of the Snapchat application and see if it fixes the issue or not. If it doesn’t, it might be due to other causes. 

2. Slow Internet Connection:

Apps like Snapchat run in support of internet connection. Therefore, if you have a slow or unstable internet connection, the Bitmoji of any friends won’t get loaded or will take a long time to show up. If you don’t have a steady and stable data connection connected to your device, only not will it fail to show you the Bitmoji of your friends but also it may hamper the smooth functioning of other features like snap stories will take too long to get uploaded, etc. 

Slow Internet Connection

Therefore, when you’re trying to see the Bitmoji of any friends, make sure that your internet connection is stable. If it’s not, then restart the internet connection. To restart the internet connection, turn off the data connection, turn on airplane mode for a few seconds and then turn it off. After that, enable the data connection again. 

You can even switch to a better WiFi network and then try to see the Bitmoji icon of the friends to see if the issue has got fixed or not. 

3. Your Friend is Using 3D Bitmoji:

Snapchat recently introduced 3D Bitmoji which allows the users to express themselves more prominently by their Bitmojis. These 3D Bitmoji icons are only available to be viewed by the updated Snapchat application. The outdated or the older versions of Snapchat won’t be able to show you the 3D Bitmojis. 

Your Friend is Using 3D bitmoji

The 3D bitmoji helps the users to create an avatar that’s more accurate to their own self. This is a new dimension of Bitmoji that many users are still not aware of. 3D Bitmojis has added more than 1k combinations of gestures, body postures, facial expressions, etc so that the users of Snapchat can be more expressive as well as more fun in making an avatar of themselves on Snapchat. 

If you’re unable to see the Bitmoji of any friend on Snapchat, it’s probably because the friend is using 3D Bitmoji. If you haven’t updated your Snapchat application to its latest version, you won’t be able to see it. Update the app to its latest version from the Google Play Store to see the 3D bitmoji.
