How To Repost Someone’s Snapchat Story
Reposting someone’s Snapchat story means you must have a copy of their Snapchat story, right?
But here’s the problem, how do you get someone’s Snapchat story on your phone, especially if it’s a video?
Try the methods below and see which one works for you.
Method #1: Tell Your Friend to Send You Their Story
If you’ve encountered someone’s Snapchat story and you can’t help but wish to repost it on your Snapchat, why not ask them to send the video or picture to you?
The good thing about this approach is that it’s hard for your friend to decline the request. Besides, at least you will have their consent when reposting their story.
So, locate the Snapchat story and reply to their story or directly message them requesting them to send you the picture or video and explain why you want to repost their story.
If you are lucky, your friend will send you the video or picture, and when they do, you can upload it to your Snapchat story and even tag them to acknowledge them. Easy, right?
Method #2: Take a Screenshot
If the Snapchat story you want to repost is a picture, you have the option of capturing a screenshot.
Note that your friend will know when you’ve captured a screenshot of their story.
Therefore, it’s best to message them and explain why you’ve captured a screenshot of their story and seek their approval for you to repost their story.
Here’s how to capture a screenshot of Someone’s Snapchat story:
- While on Snapchat, navigate to the Snapchat stories.
- Locate the story you want to screenshot.
- Once you open the story, hold your finger on the screen to hide the time in the story.
- Once the time is hidden, take a screenshot while holding the screen.
If the screenshot captured includes the time, repeat until you get a clear screenshot.
- Seek the owner’s consent, as Snapchat will notify them that you captured a screenshot of their story.
- Once you have their consent, go back you the camera screen.
- Navigate to the “Memories” tab.
- From the “Camera Roll”, you will see the captured screenshot.
- Edit the photo, tag the owner, then send it to “My Story”.
Bingo! You’ve just reposted someone’s Snapchat story. The drawback with this method is that you can only take a screenshot if their story is a photo, not a video.
Method #3: Use a Screen Recorder
If the Snapchat story you want to repost is a video, you need a screen recorder to record the Snapchat story. Once recorded, you can edit the video and upload it to your Snapchat story.
If using iPhone, you can use the in-built screen-recorder app. Start recording, then go back and view the Snapchat story. Once you stop the recording, the video will get saved on your gallery.
For Android, you must download a screen recorder from Play Store, record the screen when viewing the Snapchat story, then upload it to your Snapchat story.
There is no official way of reposting someone’s Snapchat story.
Snapchat is clear that you must seek the owner’s consent and ask them to send you their story for you to repost.
