Snapchat is a popular social media platform that allows you to share photos and videos with your friends and followers. One of the unique features of Snapchat is that the content you share disappears after a short period of time.
However, sometimes you may come across a video that you want to save for future reference or to share with someone else. In this article, we will show you how to save a long video on Snapchat to your camera roll.
Step 1: Open the Snapchat app
The first step is to open the Snapchat app on your mobile device. Once the app is open, swipe right on your screen to access the ‘Friends’ screen.
Step 2: Find the video you want to save
Scroll through your friends list until you find the friend who sent you the video that you want to save. Tap on their name to open their chat.
Step 3: Play the video
Tap on the video thumbnail in their chat to play it. Make sure that you watch the entire video as Snapchat does not allow you to download partial videos.
Step 4: Download the video
Once you have watched the entire video, tap on the download icon located at the bottom of your screen. The download icon looks like an arrow pointing downwards.
Note: If there is no download icon available, it means that your friend has disabled saving snaps in their privacy settings.
Step 5: Save the video
After tapping on the download icon, Snapchat will ask for permission to access your camera roll. Tap ‘Allow’ if prompted and then select ‘Save’ from the options that appear.
Tips for Saving Long Videos on Snapchat
- Make sure that you have enough storage space available on your device before saving long videos as they can take up a lot of space.
- If you have a slow internet connection, the video may take a while to download. Be patient and wait for the download to complete before attempting to save the video.
- Always ask for permission from the person who sent you the video before downloading and sharing it with others.
Saving long videos on Snapchat is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. However, it is important to respect other people’s privacy and always ask for their permission before downloading and sharing their content. With these tips in mind, you can save your favorite snaps and enjoy them even after they disappear from the app.
