It seems like Snapchat is getting a lot of updates these days. At least they’re making Snapchat even more entertaining and addictive. Here’s a big one: you can now send multiple pictures to friends and fellow snappers from your mobile device. These pictures get stored on your “Camera Roll” or in your “Photos.”
Here’s how to use this feature:
Send Multiple Photos in Chat
Once you have Snapchat open, go to chat by swiping right. Select a fellow snapper on your list to start chatting. Tap on the photo icon in chat. A gallery of your photos will appear. Now, select all the photos that you wish to send to your Snapchat friend. Yes, it’s really that easy.
You can also send camera roll pictures while you’re having a video or voice call with someone in chat. They appear to the person on the other end of the call translucently over the video or voice chat that you’re having.
You can switch from a video to a voice-only chat call by swiping down on your friend’s picture on the video display to minimize it. This also lets you multi-task while you video chat.
Post Multiple Snaps to Your Story
Let’s say you have a Snapchat story and you don’t want it to be broken up—you want the whole story published on Snapchat at the same time. You’ll have to “trick” Snapchat into posting all the snaps at once. Luckily, it’s not hard; here’s how to do it:
- Put your mobile device in Airplane mode. This is a very important step, because you don’t want your device to access the Internet until you’re ready.
- Take your snap video or picture, and add text, stickers, and so forth.
- Next, tap on the square with the plus symbol after each snap.
- Tap “Add” to add it to your story.
- Snapchat will alert you that your snaps failed to post because you don’t have an Internet connection. Don’t worry–read on.
- You made your snaps, but they haven’t posted yet. That’s okay, because you’ll post all your snaps together to make a complete story as soon as you’ve finished all your posts. Once you have completed your Snapchat story and are ready to upload the completed product, turn Airplane mode off and re-enable your Wi-Fi connection. Then, go to your story page.
- When the Wi-Fi reconnects, you’ll see “Tap to retry” next to each snap you’ve taken in Airplane mode. Touch “Tap to retry” for each snap you want to show up in your Snapchat story. This way, they get posted one after another in the way you want your fellow snappers to view them.
There you have it—you’ve now learned how to send multiple photos in a chat conversation, and you know how to post a complete story to your story page in Snapchat all at once.
