Snapchat is popular among the masses for its short-lived photo sharing service. The maximum time till the sent or received photo exists on Snapchat is no longer than 10-20 seconds. The joy is enormous due to the self-destructive nature of Snapchats. However, there are many instances when we like to save Snapchats on an Android phone. To do so, smart minds came up with new techniques to instantly take screenshots and save Snapchats automatically to a mobile phone. But, here’s the smart play by Snapchat, too. As soon as the screenshot is taken or saved, Snapchat aware the sender that the sent photo has been saved by the receiver. Such a scenario messes up all.

However then, few smart brains came up with a technique to save Snapchats (Android) by rooting a phone.

These third-party apps were (so-called) built by visionary developers to allow you to save Snapchats (Android) without letting know the sender or your friend. It does it for you secretly.

Part 3: Save Snapchats on Android with Another Phone/Camera

The last obvious method to save Snapchats is via another phone. The trick is very simple. You just need to put another phone you have (or a friend’s phone) in video recording mode. Now, just place it comfortably somewhere so that this another phone can clearly record- whatever is going on your phone’s mobile screen.

Now as you are prepared, it is time to open your Snapchat. As the second phone is recording your screen, you have saved a video of all Snapchats. Now, by using a screenshot maker tool (from videos), you can save Snapchats or Snapchat videos (Android) without knowing them or the sender.

So, we saw the three main methods and related apps to save Snapchats or Snapchat videos. It turns out that there are three main ways: using screen recorder tools like MirrorGo, third party apps or APK like Casper, and the obvious clever trick by using another phone or camera. Nevertheless, one can save Snapchats and Snapchat videos via rooting an Android phone, too. However, it should not opt as it can void your Android Device Guarantee. And as the last trick is clever yet tiresome and complex, the only options you are left with are third party apps/APKs and screen recorders.
