How To Make Your Bitmoji Listen to Music in Snapchat
Snapchat’s Snap Map feature shows your current physical location to the people you choose to share this information with. As long as you have the Snapchat app open and don’t turn on Ghost Mode, your friends and family members will see your Bitmoji – your customizable animated avatar – at your current location on their Snapchat map. As your physical location changes, your Bitmoji will move on the map.
You may have noticed that other people’s Bitmojis aren’t always static. Sometimes they drive miniature cars, fly miniature airplanes, or listen to music through headphones. If you’re wondering how your Bitmoji can listen to music and do all those other fun things, this article will provide the answers.
Let’s get started.
How to Make Your Bitmoji Listen to Music
Making your Bitmoji listen to music is surprisingly simple.
All you have to do is play music on your phone with the Snapchat app open. Your Bitmoji will immediately start jamming to a good tune with headphones on and music notes flying around. It doesn’t matter which app you use to play music as long as you have Snapchat open. As soon as the music stops, the headphones will disappear and the Bitmoji will go back to normal.
However, there is currently no way to make your Bitmoji perform this animation permanently.
There is another way to make your Bitmoji listen to music.
With this animation, however, your Bitmoji will not be wearing headphones. There will still be musical notes flying around its head, though, and your Bitmoji will dance.
This will happen whenever you’re attending a concert or a music festival. The Snap Map feature keeps a regularly-updated list of concerts, festivals, and other local events, with their respective venues usually marked on the map.
When you’re at one of these venues, not only will your Bitmoji dance, but your friends will also be able to see the exact concert you’re attending in the bubble next to your Bitmoji.
Other Cool Things Your Bitmoji Can Do
As already mentioned, there are plenty of other fun things your Bitmoji can do.
For example, if it’s your birthday, your Bitmoji gets a balloon and a matching birthday hat for a whole day. Of course, for this to work, you will first need to set your birthday in the Snapchat settings.
That’s not all, though. Let’s look at five other fun things you can do with your Bitmoji:
Fly a Plane: If you open Snapchat while at an airport, your Bitmoji will hop on an airplane and fly to your destination.
Take Your Bitmoji for a Ride: If you’re driving around with the Snapchat app open, your Bitmoji will be shown as driving a car.
Take a Break While Traveling: If you’re standing near an airport, your Bitmoji will be shown as taking a break with luggage on its back.
Take Your Bitmoji to the Beach: Go to the beach, open the Snapchat app, and your Bitmoji will start making castles in the sand.
Play a Round of Golf: Visit a golf course with your Snapchat open, and play a round of golf with your Bitmoji.
These Bitmoji animations are a fun and unique way to share what you’re up to with your friends, so give them a try!
How to Protect Your Privacy on Snapchat
While playing with your Bitmoji is undeniably fun, there is a not-so-tiny issue of privacy here to consider. This feature makes it so your friends can always see where you are and what you’re up to.
Thankfully, if you don’t want others to know where you are or what you’re doing, you can customize your privacy settings in Snapchat. There are three ways to do it:
- From the Setup screen, choose who can see your location on the Snap Map. Choose “My Friends” for all your friends, “Select Friends…” to handpick the friends who can keep track of your location, or “Only Me (Ghost Mode)” to make yourself invisible to all Snapchat users.
- From the Camera screen, pinch to open the Settings menu and choose one of the three location sharing options.
- From the main Snapchat screen, tap on your Bitmoji in the top-left, and then tap on the Settings (cog) icon. In the “Who Can…” section, tap on “See My Location” and choose your preferred option.
If you’re not comfortable sharing your location with your Snapchat friends, following the steps listed above will help you hide your activity and protect your privacy while using the app.
