What does the purple ring mean on Snapchat?

Snapchat was launched in 2011 as a social media app that allowed users to send pictures that disappeared within seconds.

A few years later, in 2013, they introduced Stories, which allowed users to post images and videos for 24 hours.

As the app continues to grow and update, users have seen several changes to stories, including the addition of a purple ring.

While this may be confusing to some, the ring is simply a design decision and just means you haven’t seen this story.

After viewing a story, the ring will turn gray.

What does the blue ring mean on Snapchat?

While most new stories on Snapchat have a purple ring, some have a blue one.

The purple ring means the story hasn’t been viewed and the same goes for the blue ring, however the blue means you’ve been added to someone’s private story.

When someone has created a private story, it means they only want to see content seen by specific people.

If a user doesn’t want to be part of the private story, they can simply press and hold the story and select “Story Settings” then “Leave Private Story” to be removed.
