Save Snapchat Messages

Snapchat is the most popular instant messaging app known for its quickly disappearing snaps and text messages feature. However, certain users including me used to avoid Snapchat when it comes to an important conversation because this app deletes messages and pictures after recipients viewed them.

Fortunately, Snapchat has extended this time frame to one whole day in the latest update of the app. It means now users can save Snapchat messages for 24 hours automatically. Besides it, I will also share one trick that lets you save Snapchat conversation forever with you.

Can I Save Snapchat Chats Automatically?

To save your Snapchat text messages automatically for 24 hours, you and your recipient should have the latest Snapchat app. Tap on the user profile photo, click on three dots and select Delete Chats. Now select 24 Hours After Viewing from the pop-up and your messages will be deleted after a day.

Messaging is fun with Snapchat as it has some great features like some cool camera effects, Bitmoji, and it allows you to chat while playing games with your friend.

But, quickly disappearing messages seem disappointing for people who are using Snapchat for business purposes. As they have some important conversation that needs to be accessed later on time and thus they need a platform that allows them to save their chats for a longer time.

Snapchat seems aware of this issue and thus they introduced a new feature in the latest update that allows users to save their text messages for a whole day.
