How to Share a Screenshot to a Snapchat Story

UPDATE: With Snapchat Moments now available, users can post screenshots by simply uploading a photo with the “Moments” feature. You can do this by clicking on the small circle that is below the larger circle when in the Snapchat “record” mode. Once you click the smaller circle you will be taken to Moments where you can select a photo from your camera roll or a screenshot.

If you have friends on Snapchat you know how addicting it can be. Well, one of the limitations of Snapchat is you have to share an actual picture or video taken from your phone to a Snapchat Story. At this time you cannot share a screenshot that you take of your phone to a story. This is tough for some because we have all taken some hilarious screenshots with our phones.
