Snapchat is, by far and away, the most popular app amongst teens and college students. Millions of people are watching Snapchat Stories and even more are sharing Snap pictures with each other. Unfortunately, these pictures and stories disappear quickly. Many people are looking at a Snapchat picture when they get a phone call or they take their finger off their phone. This means that pictures is gone for life. So, is there any way to view or see old Snapchats?
The answer is no. If you are hoping to see that photo that the cute girl or guy sent you two days ago you are simply out of luck. If you want to see the Snapchat Story for the supermodel or the band that posted on Snapchat it simply is not going to happen. This is what makes Snapchat so popular. The fact that you can only view a picture or a story for such a short period of time makes users aware when they open the app. Users do not just glance at Snapchat because they know they will never get to see that particular picture again.
Snapchat has never released the actual numbers on how many Snap pictures or Stories are sent every day but it is definitely in the millions. In fact, the CEO and creator of Snapchat, Evan Spiegel, tweeted that over 40 million people watched the Coachella Snapchat Story. Can you imagine how many total stories are being watched on a daily basis? All that said, if you want to view, watch or see old Snapchats you are out of luck at the moment. That is not to say there won’t be some website or company that creates a feature that will allow you to save or upload old Snapchats.
Remember that you can save Snapchat pictures sent on your phone but you would have to text that person and ask them to text it to you because it would be gone from Snapchat at that point. It will be interesting to see how the app changes in the near future as many users want best friends back and they would love the opportunity to save videos that are sent from other users.
