How to Enable Ghost Mode in Snapchat

In case your friends on Snapchat are showing their live location to you, then their Actionmojis will display on the Snap Map.

The best thing about Actionmojis is that it will not update the live location of your friend on the Snap Map if the Snapchat application is already open on the user home screen.
