For 2021, you can expect a map with various shades of purple, with lighter hues on land and dark violet for bodies of water. It’s a total spooky makeover, and you’ll want to Snap all Halloween long to keep getting a look at it.

The Halloween Snap Map also features floating ghosts, candy corn, and you might even catch one of your friends’ Bitmojis flying on a broom. If you’re looking for it before Oct. 29, you’ll be out of luck, but if you can’t find it even after it launches, here’s what you should know.

  1. Open the Snapchat app.
  2. From the main screen, tap the map icon on the bottom menu bar. The icon looks like a GPS location symbol and should be on the far left of the menu.
  3. On the Snap Map, you should automatically notice the spooky theme has been applied.

The Haunted Snap Map should appear on your Snapchat app automatically by 6 a.m. local time on Oct. 29 and will be available through 6 a.m. local time on Nov. 1. If you don't see your Snap Map when it launches, you might want to try updating your app.

When you open the spookified map, you’ll also notice your friends' Bitmojis acting a little scarier than normal. Instead of driving around or standing idly on the map, the Halloween Bitmojis will be doing things like riding broomsticks and trick-or-treating.

In some cases. your friends’ Bitmojis will be depicted in a particular action based on what they’re doing. For example, flying on a broomstick is a substitute for driving. You might also notice a group of your friends on the Snap Map together, either huddled around a witch's cauldron or a bowl of candy, which means they are all hanging out in the same area.

You can also change your Bitmoji on Snap Map by selecting an Actionmoji, and there are plenty of fun Halloween options like holding a treat bag or walking like a zombie. So, mark your calendar for Oct. 29, and get ready for all the spooky fun.
