Although Instagram is now the most attention currently, Snapchat still has niche. If you’re a diligent Snapchat user and Snapchat is a specific part of your life, sometimes, you want to download Snapchat Stories. But, you should remember that Snapchat will notify other users that you’ve already saved their story.
Download Snapchat Stories on iPhone
Take a Screenshot
The easiest way to download Snapchat in iPhone is to press and hold on the screen so as to remove the poster’s name. After that, press the button combination to take a screenshot of your iPhone screen. When done, it will automatically be saved in your Camera Roll.
When a user visits the Snapchat Story statistics, they can see who already took a screenshot. If you receive a snap in private chat, the chat will show that you previously took a screenshot.
Use Screen Recording Feature
You can also take advantage of the built-in screen recording feature on your iPhone to record a video snap. However, again, the user will receive notification about it, either in the snap stats or chat thread.
It’s considered to be the best way to record a video snap. First, you have to enable the screen recording feature on your iPhone first.
Step 1: Go to Settings > Control Center -> Customize Controls. From there, add the Screen Recording to the Control Center.
Step 2: Launch Snapchat app and open up Control Center. Tap and hold on the Screen Recording toggle and tap on Start Recording. Wait for three seconds and it will start recording the screen.
Step 3: Open the snap you want, play it, and if you want to stop the record, tap on the Red bar. The video will then be saved in the Camera Roll folder and you can edit it with the snap video.
Use QuickTime Recording on Mac
If you have a Mac, you can also make use of the inbuilt QuickTime player to record a video of Snapchat app. By this way, the Snapchat users won’t know you record their video (this method works for both public stories and videos in private chat).
