How To Fake Live Snaps in Snapchat

How To Fake Live Snaps in Snapchat

Hey there! Today, I want to share a cool trick with you. Have you ever wondered how people post those awesome “live” snaps on Snapchat? You know, the ones that make it seem like they are in an exciting location or at a happening event? Well, I’ve got a secret to share with you – you can actually fake those live snaps too!

Now, you might be thinking, “Wait, isn’t that cheating?” Well, not really. It’s all about having some fun and adding a little excitement to your snaps. So, let me show you how you can do it!

First, open up Snapchat on your phone and go to the camera screen. Tap on the “Ghost” icon at the top left corner of the screen to access your profile page. Now, go to the “Settings” gear icon at the top right corner of the page, and scroll down until you find the “Additional Services” section.

Here’s where the magic happens. Look for the “Manage” button next to “Fake Live Snaps” and tap on it. You’ll see a list of different locations and events that you can choose from. Want to pretend you’re at a beach? Just select the “Beach” option. Or maybe you want to appear at a music festival? They’ve got that too!

Once you’ve selected your desired location, go back to the camera screen. You’ll notice a new icon with the location or event name at the bottom right corner of the screen. Tap on it, and boom! Your snap now appears as if you’re right there!

But wait, there’s more! To make your fake live snap even more realistic, you can use Snapchat’s filters and stickers. Swipe left or right on your snap to find filters that match the location or event you’ve chosen. Want to stick a cute little palm tree sticker on your beach snap? Go ahead and do it!

Now that you know the secret, go ahead and have fun with it. Just remember, it’s all in good fun and there’s no harm in pretending to be somewhere exciting for a while. So go ahead and fake those live snaps, and let your creativity shine!

I’ve always been able to add videos that I’ve recorded before to my Snapchat Story. But when I do this, there’s a little text that says “from Camera Roll” above the story when I post it. And that makes it obvious that the video wasn’t recorded in real-time.

But then Snapchat introduced the Memories feature. With Memories, I can put together a series of photos from my camera roll and post them to my story without anyone knowing they weren’t taken in real time. Well, almost anyone. There’s a small white border around the edges of the photos that gives it away, but it’s not very noticeable.

But Snapchat fixed that little workaround. Now, when I post photos from Memories, it says “from Memories” instead of “from Camera Roll.” And the white border is gone, so my content looks cleaner. But it’s also harder to fake photos on my story without them being taken in real-time.

Before I continue, I should note that as of May 2020, a bug that allowed users to upload old photos has been fixed by Snapchat. But let me share the instructions from when this bug was still around. Uploading an old photo should be impossible, but there’s a small bug that you can exploit to send snaps from your gallery as if they were live snaps, without the “Memories” sign appearing in the corner.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Tap on the original picture in your albums and select “Send to My Story.”

2. Open the story and click “download.” Then delete the saved image immediately.

3. Tap on the Settings icon and scroll down to Memories.

4. Tap on Memories and then select “Import from the Camera Roll.” Find the picture you downloaded from My Story.

5. Go back to the starting screen and choose the new picture.

6. Tap on the Send button and you can choose to send the new photo to your Camera Roll and your friends. In this case, tap on “Send to My Story.” The newly uploaded camera roll picture won’t have the Memories header.

Now, let’s talk about faking “real-time” snaps using third-party apps.

If you want to post photos from your camera roll and make them look like they were taken in real time, there are ways to do it. On Android, there are fake camera apps available that let you send images from your camera roll to Snapchat and make it seem like Snapchat is using your camera to take the pictures. Unfortunately, on iOS, this isn’t possible. But there are still some third-party apps that claim to have the same functionality.

Let’s take a closer look at a few of these apps and what they offer. By the way, if you sometimes worry about whether people are actually seeing your snaps, check out this guide to understand what it means when someone is typing but no message comes through.

Now, let’s move on to SnapShare.

Hey there! I’m here to tell you about an awesome app that survived Snapchat’s cleanup of third-party apps that violated its terms of service. This app is available on the iOS App Store and it allows you to share Snaps directly from your camera roll. The best part? It even lets you post Snaps to your story without the annoying “from Camera Roll” or “from Memories” text showing up!

Let me introduce you to SnapShare, a visually stunning app that you’ll absolutely love. The best part is that it’s super easy to learn. Aside from the ability to fake live snaps, you can also block unwanted users from seeing your profile and stay connected with friends and family through the built-in instant messaging system.

If all that isn’t enough to convince you to download SnapShare, here’s more. This app allows you to do things like scanning QR codes, taking pictures of documents, adding filters to your snaps, enhancing image resolution, and much more. And it’s all fully encrypted, so you don’t have to worry about the safety of your sensitive information.

All things considered, SnapShare is a fantastic app for sharing photos with friends. You should definitely give it a try!

How to Save as a Private Story

To save your Snap as a private story, follow these steps:

  1. Tap on the dual cards icon next to the Record button.
  2. Select your photo from the Camera Roll and add it to your Private Story.
  3. Tap on your profile icon at the top of Snapchat’s home screen and select your private story.
  4. Click Save to save your story, then click on the delete icon and confirm the deletion.
  5. Now, repeat the process by tapping the dual cards icon, selecting your image from Snaps, and uploading it as you normally would.
  6. After following these steps, your Snap will look like this:

Unfortunately, this method won’t display the “Uploaded just now” option at the top, but it will get rid of the “uploaded from camera roll” option.

One of our readers mentioned that you can search for camera roll filters by swiping up from the filters page. This allows you to upload pictures from your camera roll and achieve the “Uploaded just now” message. However, based on our tests, the available filters only put your photo in your snap and don’t cover the entire subject.

We know that filters often change based on location, date, and time, so it’s worth exploring if there’s a camera roll filter that will work for you.

Final Thoughts

Have you ever wondered if you can fake a live Snap on Snapchat? Well, while the app doesn’t officially support it, there are third-party apps that can help you do it. Just keep in mind that these apps may violate Snapchat’s terms of use, so exercise caution before using them to avoid being temporarily or permanently banned from Snapchat.
