Snapchat is one of the
most popular social media platforms you will find in the world today. It is a
video calling and text messaging app which people do use to share rtheir daily
lives online. In this post, I will show you how to save all conversations on Snapchat automatically just in
case you are finding it difficult to do so.
Except you have been
avoiding social media for some decades now, the word Snapchat should
immediately evokes a bright yellow and cute ghost symbol in your mind, just
like the image displayed above. It is a very popular logo, one you could
probably describe even if you have never actually used the app before.
The basics of Snapchat
includes using the app to share photos, videos, and text, just as you can
easily do with all social media apps. But what makes Snapchat different is the
short-term effect of the content you send.
The purpose of sharing snaps and videos is to keep things
light and spontaneous among friends, without having to think about it later. It
is not meant to help build your long-time online presence, but rather for being
silly and enjoying the moment.
I have already talked about how handy and beneficial it can be to have
your snaps and texts disappear into thin air. But some of these factors could
turn into somewhat of an inconvenience. Say you open a message from your friend
but you are not able to give it your full attention right then. Or the message
requires a reply but you either cannot think of one at the moment or again, you
just cannot do it now. You open the message and then it disappears, and you
have no idea what it said or how you were supposed to answer.
A terrible situation I guess.

Archiving Your Conversations for Long-term on

Snapchat for 24 hours, but you can as well preserve them longer than that –
that is by archiving them. Maybe there is message of significance that you just
do not want to forget. Here is what you will do in order to save your Snapchat
conversations on a long-term.

Open the conversation of the friend whose
message you want to save.
Tap on the message and press and hold.
By doing this, the
message will be archived. It is also important to note that both parties
involved in the conversation, will be able to see the messages were saved, but
only the person who archived the conversation can unsave it back. You can do
that by pressing and holding the message again. The saved conversation will be
highlighted in gray for both parties.
It is always important
to know you have options, even though you might not really want to use them.

the burden of what is posted where. But in case you are using it as a text
messaging tool, then this post on how to
save all conversation on Snapchat automatically will be of great importance
