One of Snapchat’s defining features when it released in 2011, was that pictures and videos entitled “Snaps” went away forever after they were opened. With 319 million users spending an average of more than 24 minutes each day on Snapchat, it became apparent that a way to save Snaps would be appreciated so time spent on the app would not be meaningless, memories could be preserved with a saving feature. Snapchat Memories was Snapchat’s answer to that issue.
Snapchat Memories is your personal album of saved snaps. Snapchat Memories were announced in 2016 as an answer to users wanting the feature to save the Snaps they make within the app to Snapchat’s servers.
With Memories, you are able to create an archive full of your Snaps to look back on or share again on any platform you want to. The Memories feature was inspired by the growing popularity of looking through old photos with friends and family. Some of the best Throwback Thursday or Flashback Friday content might be located in Snapchat Memories.
Snapchat users used to have the ability to save Snaps on their phone’s camera roll, but Memories lets users save and remember Snaps inside the app itself. Memories are now the place where Snaps are saved unless you update your settings to have Snaps uploaded to your camera roll too.
All you need to do is swipe upward from the camera area in Snapchat to open up memories. There’s nothing else to it. Inside the Memories section of the app, you can swipe right to check out your saved stories, your camera roll, screenshots as well as a “my eyes only” area.
You can save every Snapchat Memory to your camera roll one by one, but that could a long time. The simplest way to keep all your Snapchat Memories in your camera roll is by:
