How to Save Photos and Videos from SnapChat in Android Devices 2017
The SnapChat is one of the most popular social networking site with instant messaging app. People like to use SnapChat to send or receive secret photos and videos. Because, if you send a photo/video someone using SnapChat, they can only view it, they can’t download or save it. However, you may need to save photos or videos that your friend or someone sent you over SnapChat. If that, then you are in the right place. In this post, I’m going to share some tricks and tips on How to Save Photos and Videos from SnapChat in Android Devices. Some of these tricks also work for iOS user. So let’s check details below to Save Photos and Videos from Snapchat.
4 Best Ways to Save Photos and Videos from SnapChat
- Taking Screenshot
It is one of the easiest ways to save any photos from SnapChat. But unfortunately, you can’t save videos using this technique. However, you may also know this trick because it’s common. And when you take a screenshot of any snaps they send your friend, your friend will also notify about this by SnapChat. Meanwhile, this is not the perfect way for those people who want to save secret photos from SnapChat without knowing the Sender.
- Taking Screenshot at Flight Mode without Knowing the Sender
This is a little bit complicated method to save SnapChat photos and like the previous one, you can’t save videos using this method. But if you did it properly, send won’t know about it. The Flight mode also known as Airplane Mode and in my Android phone it’s Airplane mode.
At first you need to open the Snaps that you want to save. Then swipe your mobile top menu without closing the SnapChat and active the Flight Mode/Airplane Mode. Now swipe the mobile top menu again and take the Screenshot of the Snaps that you already opened. After completing this process, you can stop the Flight Mode/Airplane Mode to active your Mobile network and others connection.
(Note: In 1st Photo, Airplane Mode is not active and in the 2nd Photo, Airplane Mode is active.)
- Using SnapChat Saver Apps (Both for Android and iOS)
You may know that, there are several Free SnapChat Saver Apps available for both Android and iOS users. And using these apps, you can easily save both Photos and Videos from SnapChat without knowing the sender. Here are some most popular free SnapChat Saver apps for Android.

Well, you can’t save videos from SnapChat using the screenshot option. And if you don’t like to use a 3rd party app to save SnapChat Videos then this option could be the best one. To use this method, at first you need to download a Screen Recorder app on your Android Device. And the AZ Screen Recorder App is the best one for this and personally I’m also using this. After installing this app, open this and also open your SnapChat app. Play the snaps that you want to save and start recording using this app.

So it’s totally up to you that you could use or don’t use these techniques to Save Photos and Videos from SnapChat.
