This is How You Can Save All of Your Snapchat Photos

Every teenager’s favorite social app, Snapchat, has been around for quite a while now. The app’s recent update added a new feature that has made it even easier to backup all the photos you take inside the app.

Snapchat’s basic purpose is to upload photos for a short time, after which they are lost forever, and only the sender can save the photos if they want to. Recently, they dispatched an update to its mobile apps that added a new feature called “Memories”. Previously, the app allowed you to save photos directly to the gallery after taking it, but now the photos are saved in the “Memories” collection.

However, there is still a way to backup your Snaps to gallery and here’s how you can do it.

How To Save Your Snaps to Gallery

  1. Launch the app and tap on the little “Ghost” icon at the top.
  2. Tap on the little gear icon and then tap on “Memories”.
  3. Check the box marked “Auto-Save Stories”.
  4. Tap on “Save to…”.

Once you have done this, all the photos that you will put on your Story will also be stored in your phone’s gallery. You can also tap on the little save icon on the snaps you are sending to your friends to store them too.
