When Snapchats and Snap Stories are saved in Memories, they are automatically backed up on the cloud for users. This cache is a container for Snaps and Snapchat Stories you've recently taken and other account data that allows your memories to load quickly.
The company today introduced Memories, a way of saving and sharing old snaps in a private archive inside the main app. It's a living, social camera roll in which photos and videos can be organized, edited, and shared long after they are taken.
Tap on the smaller white circle underneath the shutter button to access Memories. You can also swipe up anywhere on the screen. Tap the Snaps tab at the top of the screen to access your saved snaps. Tap on the photo or video you would like to post to your Snapchat story or send to a friend.
Saving any photos or videos to memories will save them in a “cloud”, similar to iCloud. They will not take up any space on your phone, they are saved completely through the internet.
To find the setting, tap the ghost icon at the top of the camera screen in the app, then the gear icon, then select Memories. Tick the box marked Auto-save Stories and tap Save to to make sure your snaps are saved to your phone as well as Snapchat's own internal library.
Save Snaps to a searchable camera roll. As Snapchat explains: You can use Memories to create new Stories from Snaps you've taken, or even combine different Stories into a longer narrative. It's fun to celebrate an anniversary or birthday by finding a few old Snaps and stringing them together into a new Story.
Memories lives beneath the camera home screen of Snapchat — a space the startup had reserved for it. You swipe up to reveal Memories. But it's also now the default place where Snaps are saved to, unless you toggle it to save copies to your camera roll only or as well.
If you want to import snaps from your camera roll or gallery, go to Snapchat's settings and find Memories. Select "Import Snaps from Camera Roll." Note that this will only surface actual Snapchats you have previously saved to your phone -- not photos taken with the regular camera app.
Tap on the smaller white circle underneath the shutter button to access Memories. You can also swipe up anywhere on the screen. Tap the Snaps tab at the top of the screen to access your saved snaps. Tap on the photo or video you would like to post to your Snapchat story or friend.
But here is maybe the best part: Snapchat Memories don't disappear. Not ever. Not unless you want them to. You can even import photos from your camera and older, saved Snaps into your Snapchat Memories.
The Snapchat app occasionally caches photo and video files on your iPhone, and this can quickly add up to more than 1 GB of space. When you're tight on storage, every little bit counts. Here's how to see how much space it's using on your phone and an easy way to clear it.
The Save option now stores snaps in your Memories. Next, go into Memories and find the single snap you just saved or a single item on your Camera Roll tab. Tap on the item to enlarge it, and then press and hold on the screen to enter Edit mode.
