Save Snapchat Videos in the Camera Roll

You can also save the taken snaps directly to your camera roll by just tapping on the 'save to camera roll' option. However, you can only save your snap to your device.

That is why it hasn't provided its users with such a feature that can have them save other people's snap stories to their devices.

However, sometimes, to invade someone's privacy is not the reason behind wanting to save their snap stories to the device. Sometimes, you may find a snap very interesting and entertaining that you feel like keeping it to yourself so that you can revisit it whenever you want. It may also be an innovative DIY video that you may find helpful in a lot of ways, and since the stories are no longer available after a day, it may become impossible to review it.
