Snapchat is a popular social media app that allows users to share pictures and videos with their friends and followers. However, Snapchat does not allow users to directly upload pictures from their camera roll to their Snapchat Story. This can be frustrating for Android users who want to share their favorite pictures on their Story without taking a new picture using the app’s camera. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to upload pictures to your Snapchat Story from your Android’s camera roll.
Uploading Photos from Android’s Camera Roll to Snapchat Story
Follow the following steps.
Step 1. Open Snapchat
The first step is to open the Snapchat app on your Android phone. If you haven’t already logged in, enter your username and password to access your account.
Step 2. Swipe up to access Memories
Once you are logged in, swipe up from the camera screen to access Memories. Memories is a feature in Snapchat that allows users to save and store pictures and videos.
Step 3. Select the picture you want to upload
In Memories, select the picture you want to upload to your Snapchat Story. Once you have selected the picture, tap on the three dots located in the top right corner of the screen.
Step 4. Select “Send Snap”
After tapping on the three dots, select “Send Snap” from the options that appear.
Step 5. Choose “My Story”
From the Send To screen, select “My Story” to upload the picture to your Snapchat Story. You can also add a caption or draw on the picture before uploading it.
Step 6. Upload the picture
After you have selected “My Story,” tap on the blue arrow in the bottom right corner of the screen to upload the picture to your Snapchat Story.
Step 7. Check your Story
Once the picture has been uploaded, you can check your Story to make sure it has been added. To do this, tap on the three dots located in the top right corner of the screen and select “My Story.” Your picture should be the first snap on your Story.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully uploaded a photo from your camera roll to your Snapchat story.
