You may sometimes find yourself in a situation where you send someone a Snapchat snap or a text message and then see In Progress instead Delivered.
It could be caused by multiple factors. Don’t worry.
What does Snapchat’s pending mean? Why is this happening? Let us look at the causes and try to find solutions.
1. Snapchat does not work for friends
When you send a Snapchat friend request but it isn’t accepted, you will see Pending next their name. Once they accept, your snap or message will automatically be delivered to them
A friend may have removed you from their friend list. Once you are added back, Delivered should appear with a blue tick.
2. Snapchat has blocked you
Snapchat doesn’t send you notifications if you are blocked. One of these is Pending.
It might be helpful to determine if your contact blocked you or unfriended you.
3. Snapchat Account Deleted
Some snaps might not have been sent because a friend deleted their Snapchat account.
When your snaps change from Pending to Delivered or Delivered, it will let you know if the account was reactivated. You can easily recover your Snapchat account by logging in within 30 days.
4. Snapchat App has an error
Snapchat is an efficient, smooth social media platform. The app may display a random status called Pending.
App glitches could be caused by a lack or excessive software updates. Clear some space in your settings, then delete the Snapchat cache and then update your software.

5 You or the Recipient don’t have an internet connection
Snapchat may have a problem if the caption says “Pending”
You have the option to disconnect from Wi-Fi to send the Snap entirely using your mobile data. Your snaps won’t be lost in the mix.
Sometimes, the recipient might not have internet access or have turned it off. In these cases, you’ll need to wait until they get online again.
6. Snapchat’s servers are down
Users will experience a large number of app crashes and may not be able to use the app properly.
Snapchat will quickly restart, so you can send snaps as soon as possible. You can also delete the app and reinstall it.
7. Recipient’s phone is disconnected
Sometimes, the recipient will not have any issues at all with you on a personal level. If the device isn’t connected, your snap might show up as “Pending”.
The recipient may have turned off their phone to focus on something else or save battery. You should send your snap as soon as they turn on their phone.

Snapchat can have its Pending status due to many factors. A user could have rejected your application or blocked you.
