Snapchat has changed a lot in recent years. Frequent updates mean the app looks and work nothing like it once did.
Snap, the company behind Snapchat, is so aggressive with making changes to the app that it can be hard to keep up with how Snapchat really works, even if you’re a regular user. To make things easier for you and newbies you may read the information below. By the end of it, you’ll know every facet of the app.
As 2021 is almost over many people want to make their Snapchat Year in Review 2021.
Same as Spotify Wrapped and Instagram Playback 2021, Snapchat gives you an opportunity to take a little trip down your memory lane and see again all your most pleasant events. Basically, Snapchat creates a little montage of all your best moments throughout the year using Snaps that have been saved to your Memories. So, basically, Snapchat literally keeps all the precious selfies you took with your BFF, significant other, or pet in one place.
Snapchat actually rolled out the feature on Tuesday (Dec 14) but it’s nothing new. If you’re an avid Snapchatter you’ll know the platform had the same feature last year too. The information below will explain how to see all your 2021 Snaps and the Snapchat Year in Review.
What is Snapchat
Snapchat is a mobile app for Android and iOS devices. It’s headed by co-founder Evan Spiegel. One of the core concepts of the app is that any picture or video or message you send – by default – is made available to the receiver for only a short time before it becomes inaccessible. This temporary or ephemeral, nature of the app was originally designed to encourage a more natural flow of interaction.
Snapchat’s developer is a public company called Snap. It claims to be a camera company. As such, it creates other products, including hardware, like Snapchat Spectacles. Also, Snapchat is colloquially referred to as Snap.
What is the main purpose of Snapchat
Snapchat is a popular messaging app that lets users exchange pictures and videos (called snaps) that are meant to disappear after they’re viewed. It’s advertised as a “new type of camera” because the essential function is to take a picture or video, add filters, lenses or other effects and share them with friends.
What does it mean if Snapchat Year in Review 2021 is not showing
Unfortunately, not all users are able to see Snapchat Year in Review 2021. Apparently, this is caused by the fact that people didn’t save enough Snaps in their Memories. So, if you’re new to Snapchat it’s highly likely this could be the case for you.
If you do have enough Snaps stored in your Memories, the problem may be because you haven’t got the latest version of Snapchat.
How to see, send and save your 2021 Snapchat highlights
- First, you should open the Snapchat app to the camera screen.
- Then, tap on the photo icon, which is to the left of the circle you press to take a snap (the icon you would normally click to see your snaps from this day last year).
- There, a yellow tile labeled A Look Back at 2021 will be displayed and appear at the top of your feed.
- Select that and watch through the highlights chosen by Snapchat.
- You can then select certain highlights to send to individual people or post to your story, you can edit the 2021 highlights and you can save the entire highlight reel to your phone.
Snapchat has included sections like snaps you took during 2021 in the early mornings, late nights, while staying at home, with pets, around water, with filters, and with captions that included the laughing emoji or a smiling face.
