    If there are conversations that you don't want posted on social media, use your phone to send chats that disappear immediately or only save for 24 hours.

    For the most part I quite enjoy Snapchat it’s probably the most used app I have on my phone because it’s really convenient for messaging people especially when my texting doesn’t work based on various locations, like text messages don’t go through when I’m at school buildings but Snapchat messages will. I think it’s quite useful and it’s very fun to use, however lately I’ve been experiencing some problems with loading times. For the past maybe two months it’s taking a good 10 seconds to load in a text that I got, and another three to save that text. I’ve been on various Wi-Fi connections as well as using my data and no matter the change between Wi-Fi or data the problem does not get fixed so I know that’s not the issue. Recently I found that deleting some of the things that take up storage on my phone help with the performance however this time that has not worked. I do think that this is some thing Snapchat needs to look into as a problem since it is one of the main communication apps. Have the time I to get annoyed with it taking so long to load that I just use text message instead of Snapchat but it’s just not the same and I wish I didn’t have to resort to it. I hope Snapchat fixes this problem soon.
  • Ad Glitch and Suggestions Jul 4, 2021

    By Bellastar117
    So, I started back in March 2019, but got a new phone that December and made a new account. I went a few months without any problems, but then one day ads just stopped playing. Even in games when prompted for an ad, it would give me a pop-up instead. I was happy, I could watch stories and play games uninterrupted. But today they came back. At first I was excited because the glitch was resolved, but there are a lot of ads, a lot more than I remembered. I doubt the developers will even read this, but if they do, I have a few suggestions about the glitch and about other things. Starting with the glitch, I recommend an option to pay to have no ads, even when prompted, or no ads unless prompted, or simply post less ads. I do have a suggestion on filters. First, when you open up the filters, the first filters there should be your 5 most used favorites, so users don’t have to scroll through their filters to find them, and then the rest will be random and refresh daily. I take a photo with a filter once and it never goes away. Finally, I have a suggestion on the Spotlight page. There should be a way to “follow” people’s spotlight pages so you can keep track of what they post, and possibly even be notified of it. Second, there should be a comment section, it’s fun to interact with others in comments about the thing you’re watching. That’s all, that’s my entire review. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    This is the only app I use to talk to a good friend of mine. I've used it since the beginning of this year, we would send messages, memes and videos. A few months ago, I lost the ability to send anything over 60 seconds, while he can still send videos to me that are significantly longer. The general glitches are frustrating enough but this has become a great deal of stress. If I want to send anything, I have to cut it into several parts. It takes almost an hour to prep anything for sending.
  • What happened? Oct 14, 2020

    By Idek 9-101112
    I’m sorry to say it, but something is definitely wrong with Snapchat. In all my years of using the app, I have never been this disappointed. Although Snapchat is my main social app on my phone, it has been really bugging me. For example, it has been taking up to 5 minutes to send a chat everytime I try to send something. Before I am told my phone is slow, let me reassure you this is not only a problem for me but for my peers as well. Also, I have been receiving Snapchat’s from WEEKS ago, leaving the other person to conclude I have been ignoring them. When it is taking 4 weeks for a singular snap to come through, there is an obvious problem with the app. Likewise, my peers and I have noticed that when somebody responds to me, it’s very slow and won’t load or I don’t get it at all. Just the other day I received a snap, and when I asked about it I learned it had said I left them on opened whereas for me it said I had been left on delivered. The amount of time I have wasted trying to solve this problem along with the taking 5 minutes to send one thing problem, I could have been doing other things, so I have been veering off the app. Unfortunately, I do not think this app will be worth it, especially if it keeps traveling downhill at this rate. Maybe, if we weren’t so worried about how the app looks we could worry about how it has been working. My peers and I have tried deleting the app, updating, but nothing seems to work.
  • STORY ORGANIZATION RUINED! Jul 31, 2020

    By William Quintana
    Snapchat update ruined my story organization! Ok so a thing that I really like to do is save my stories to my memories (like everyone else) and I save every. Single. Story. And I have Snapchat automatically save my stories for me but I also manually save them because Snapchat doesn’t save stuff that you posted from your camera roll so I wanna make sure I have everything there. So I’ll have like 2 or 3 stories in my memories that are similar but not all the same. So I just combine all of them and they would organize themselves by post date and I can get rid of the duplicates and have it be a nice, organized story just like how I posted them. But now, I don’t know what happened, but I think an update ruined how my stories organize. Whenever I combine my stories so that I can organize it, they won’t organize themselves by post date anymore. They just add to the end so the memory is now all wonky and out of place and I’m very disappointed. I wanna be able to add stuff to my snap memories so whenever I look back at them, I can relive the whole day of when I posted those again. Please fix this Snapchat. It was completely fine before! At least make it to where you can individually move a snap to wherever in the memory you want it. What’s the point of adding things to a snap story memory if you aren’t able to put it wherever in the story you want it in so that the story is organized by when they were posted??

    This is one of my most used apps but I have a samsung (an android), which means with along many other androids, Snapchat tends to delay updates for android phones for MONTHS while iPhone gets them right away. The app is very well made and a good system to text and talk, but if you have an android, you wont be getting the same full experience and extras that iPhone users will be getting.

    Hello, if you are reading this review then I would tell you I highly recommend Snapchat as apart of today's social media, but as of recently. I have been having some issues and it's been terrible. For the past day or two. Everything was fine at first. I would text and call my friends, continue to make posts online, personalize my account and do virtual everything social media was made for. But as of this morning, Sunday July 11th, to this morning of July 12th, everytime I go back to Snapchat, I get a notification that says "looks like you don't have your camera enabled, go into settling as and turn on blah blah blah" you get the jist of it. So I think, oh well everything its fine just have to turn my camera back on and stuff. Turns out that's not the case. When I go back to settings on my iPhone 7 there is no where that says "camera access" or "microphone access" and my Instagram has been doing the same thing. I'm stuck at the beginning of the app because it doesn't recognize that my camera and mic aren't already on. And I've been using Snapchat and Instagram for over a year now so how could this happen? I love Snapchat and Instagram. I really do. It's my main sources of social media. But right now for me everything has been terrible. I can't talk to my friends and I can't even take a picture on snap which means I'm gonna loose all my streaks.

    The developers need to give optimization to the Android users ASAP, seems like they're only putting in effort for Apple users. Ever since the new "update", the text on my snaps randomly move all the way to the left side once I post them. Also, when viewing snaps from friends they are zoomed in a bit which is annoying because their text is cut off from the borders. Another of the several issues is dark mode...we don't have the option but apple users do. PlEASE fix this. I'm an S20 ultra user btw
  • Far to many ads in such a short amount of time in discovery vids May 24, 2021

    By Hayden2705
    I have been using Snapchat for many and many years like since the beginning whenever the app was first launched. I’ve always like loved snap and have started to watch the “discovery” sections. The point of me writing my review is to talk about the discovery stories. Discovery stories are random popular people, channels and such that play highlighted parts from their vids or snaps. The main complaint I have is that there is LITERALLY AN AD every like TEN SECONDS that last like 6 seconds and you can’t skip them. Sometimes I get very into whatever random discover Snapchat channel thing I found but getting an ad every 10 seconds makes me not even want to watch them anymore!.. their SO ANNOYING! I understand Snapchat’s gotta make revenue through ads but throwing them in your face every freaking second is ridicules. Maybe one every 3 or 4 mins would be more viable but getting one every like no more than 30 seconds kills the mood to even want to return to the discover section. They should call it “make us money by spending more time watching a crap ton of ads far more than enjoying and viewing the clips”. Other than that I still love Snapchat and will continue to use it everyday, I just won’t be viewing the discover section because I refuse to watch a 6 second every 10-15 seconds.

    This is the overall a great app! I can keep in touch with current friends and make new ones. They filters are great and I can't get over the amount of them! It's just so fun, i would like to point out one thing for my Snapchat that doesn't happen to my friends. When I like a video on the Spotlight page it doesn't show up in my liked spotlight videos, infact none do! I don't mind this as I send to my friend instead 😂 and we save it in chat. But it would be great if this could be fixed.

    This app is piss poor. It always has been. Both in terms of performance and camera quality. But you continue to add features nobody asked for and refuse to solve bugs that have existed for literal years. The last update basically completely unformats your text before posting, so everything is default font/size and smashed against the left side of the screen. For once in you lives, can you please actually attempt at FIXING something?
  • No Help When Needed Jul 15, 2020

    By hollyheathh
    My snapchat got hacked about a month ago, which i know isn’t entirely their fault. But i went through every step they told me too do and they still haven’t helped!! They keep saying my email isn’t the one associated with the account, which makes no sense because the only reason i knew someone was trying to hack me is because i got an email about it FROM SNAPCHAT! They have no customer service phone number so everytime i try to reach out i get the EXACT SAME MESSAGE. Even though i write in the help box that i keep getting the same message and keep asking them to contact me in a different way for more help and i repeatedly get told the same thing. So my private photos on snapchat are now being viewed by someone i don’t know and there is nothing i can do about it i can’t even deactivate the account. Very unpleased with the company. So many privacy issues and customer service issues that need fixed. I can prove that it’s my snapchat by just the phone number connected and the fact that I can’t even make a new account until I confirm that i want all the pictures saved to be deleted. I want to take legal action just because someone could steal my photos, phone number, email address! They can talk to people without me knowing and give my personal information all because this hasn’t been handled properly. If I could give them zero stars I would. BE SUPER CAREFUL DOWNLOADING THIS APP OR YOUR PRIVACY WILL BE BREACHED.

    New update for friends stories freaking sucks. I feel that it's more confusing to have to swip up to skip (like tik tok) don't know why you did that it was just fine before. Swipe left or right to exit. Why is that? Why not just swipe down like before? Seems a lot easier. When i swipe left it pulls up the chat bar. When i swipe right it closes out the story when i swipe up or down it shows the previous or next snap just like tik tok. Its dumb that it changed and its dumb u ripping of another app
  • Locked account for no reason at all. Apr 30, 2021

    By thatmf7k
    My first account that was locked was an account i had since elementary, i had so many memories, pictures and friends on it. all of a sudden i get locked out (snapchat didn’t tell me a reason even after i contacted them) i was never able to log into that account. After months i made a new snapchat account this account was literally so new i barely had about 70 friends... Next thing you know i get locked out , i unlocked it using my email but a few hours later i get locked out again and again until the account was permanently deleted apparently for “suspicion” when the account was barely made, not even 24 hours i had that account... i stopped using snapchat cause i was frustrated with them locking my account until YESTERDAY, i made a new account so i can keep in touch with my friends from another state and since i missed using it. Not even an hour into setting the account and stuff, i get locked out. it locked me out about 9 times until about an hour ago it was permanently locked. i contacted snapchat and they sent a bot to respond with why my account got locked which none of those reasons had nothing to do with me because One, i wasn’t switching devices, i wasn’t hacking or anything like that, and i wasnt adding people without my email being verified. i have proof both my email and number were verified so they had no reason to lock my account.

    Really over the lack in effort for Android Snapchat. iOS users get every feature first and the everything is designed for the shape/size of an iPhone screen, which is wider than Galaxy screens so words and images get cut in stories and chats. Considering this is a top social media platform, it's disappointing. Filters are cute so I keep using it but that's the extent of use.
  • Locked account Aug 22, 2020

    By BuRnT cHiCkEn :3
    I have had my snap account for a while but then I wanted to create a new one and so I did. I only lasted three days with the new account at first it was just locked for a few minutes and I was ok with that I logged back in and everything was fine a minute didn’t even pass and my account was permanently LOCKED!!!! I was confused as to why since I wasn’t doing anything wrong and harmless. I decided to make a another account this morning. Everything was fine until IT GOT LOCKED AGAIN!!!!!! I didn’t even last two hours with it, I logged back in and was talking to my friend all of a sudden it kicks me out of my account AGAIN! I was really frustrated because I wasn’t doing absolutely nothing just having fun talking to my friends. I went to the website and realized my account was PERMANENTLY LOCKED AGAIN!!!!!!!! I gave up at this point and would like to know why this is happening. I’m getting so angry at this. Might as well delete the app since I can’t even make an account. This locked thing is getting me irritated. I would like an explanation. And the fact that you guys don’t have a personal support email so we can contact you guys instead of using the website which is pretty difficult and would be much easier if you guys had an email. Anyways I would like to know why my account is getting locked without lasting a WHOLE DAY! And I’m doing nothing wrong and still question why this is happening to me.

    As an android user, the text moves to the left side sometimes, the updates NEVER install and you have to remove tons of apps, the snapmap glitches and takes 10+ minutes to load. Overall not the best app but I've been using it for a long time so I can only say this much!! The issues need to be fixed

    The new update is actually terrible I keep getting glitches lines of other apps really fast and it's only on snapchat. I let my phone completely die out, I've reset it, I've logged put and deleted snapchat multiple times bit it doesn't work. Slow down and actually take the time to properly fix this instead of rushing it or the app will end up even worse without and users.
  • many things that could improve Sep 22, 2020

    By iona.pettigrew
    the new snap update is horrible. i hate how you can’t swipe down to see the map. also with ios 14, my pictures are lighter and worse quality. why can’t you just keep it the same for once. i have been using snapchat for years and there are a couple things that i honestly would love to see and thought i would have already seen. first and foremost, DARK MODE. it is so annoying when all my other apps have a dark mode but then i go to snapchat and it is bright white. i also think it would be a good feature to have it where you can select all your steaks so you don’t i have to individually choose each one. it would also be nice to have more freedom of who is on my best friend list. more of the people i want to talk to and less of who snaps back quickest. i also think there should be an emoji for when you are someone’s number on best friend but they are not yours. it would also be nice to be able to see a history of the filters i have used. i know there is favoriting now, but before that, there are filters i can’t find now. another thing is being able to have more people pinned, and you could hide them in a folder then open the folder on top so that it doesn’t take up the whole screen. it would also be nice when you are replying to a bulk amount of people that there was a select all button. just a few things i would change.

  • The New Update Jul 17, 2020

    By Mr.Malfoy
    So I recently just got the current update of Snapchat and it myself as well as many people that I know don’t necessarily like it. It changes the flow a bit too much and there are now some features that don’t exist anymore. I do like being able to access the snap map better by clicking on it however I do not like that when I swipe to the left instead of opening a conversation it goes to the map. Many of us would rather be able to swipe into our conversations like we used to. I understand that the update was most likely a lot of work but I think it would be nice if we could get the option to decide if swiping left will open chats or the map. May be in a next update you can add in a feature in our settings where you can pick whether swiping left or open the map or your chats I’m sure many people would appreciate it although I do understand it would take a lot of work. Either way Snapchat is an amazing app and really this is just a small problem but one that I feel many people would appreciate having the choice about. Still putting five out of five stars though because despite the update I still love the app.

    Best app ever I love it so much I use it all the time. My problem is that the calls on snapchat are really bad quality. I think it's just my internet but before I lived in a house with amazing internet and it did the same thing. But although great app. Just needs improvement on the calls. If you are wondering to download this app please do!! It's such a amazing app!

    I can say confidently that me and all of my friends spend just about all of our time on Snapchat. It has brought many people I know together in ways I’ve never seen capable by another app. By far snapchat is my favorite and most used app. It is easy to use and has a smooth and appealing layout. I am not here to criticize, but simply to make a suggestion. I enjoy watching some of the shows on the “For you” tab. But I often find myself losing the show that I was just watching. I’ve noticed that thumbnails change after you go through the story, so that makes it hard to find what you clicked on in the first place. In particular I keep finding myself thinking “wow, I enjoyed that show, but I don’t remember what channel it was under. Though I only watched it 5 minutes ago.” Thus I would propose a sort of “history” feature for the “for you” page. (I would not like this for personal stories, only shows on the for you tab.) Possibly even just keep it in a more hidden spot because I do not need it as often as other things on Snapchat. But a feature like this would help me find and subscribe to the shows I enjoy. Thank you for reading.
  • Great game overall! Jul 12, 2021

    By Thehungryfrog
    Snapchat is a great way to stay in touch with friends and family. You can post on the app and even try on funny filters that I absolutely adore and love. But there are some minor things that I would like to see added, removed, or updated in this awesome app. I have been using Snapchat for quite a while now and it’s amazing! One thing I did see though is that your filters don’t update that fast…if that’s just me and I need to update my filters, please tell me how to do so. I’ve also seen on the stories that Snapchat creates on the story page, they have some swear words in them from time to time. This is a huge issue for minors that may use Snapchat… please take that as an example for the sake of little children who may not know what these words mean or even are in English defense. I would also like it if the app could automatically save your chats for you even if this means for a day. It’s so annoying when you text something to your friends and then log off of the app for a bit and then you don’t know what you sent when your friend responds. Please keep these things in mind to create the best app it can be. Thank you! ❤️
  • Amazing! May 2, 2020

    By 🐷PigLover🐷
    This app is amazing and is so safe for our kids! I am a mother of 4 and i let all of my kids have this app. It is very safe because when you first download the app, it immediately puts you on ghost mode. This means no one can see your location. you have the choice to turn it off but they ask you about 3 verification questions before you do. Plus, you can’t see anyone’s posts and you can’t message anyone unless you follow them and they follow you back. If you guys follow each other and someone does something inappropriate, and you didn’t save the chat, you can go in settings and there is a button where you can revive all of the message you have ever sent. they will also bring up any messages they other person sent too. Lastly, if you report someone, it will immediately block them and report their account to the headquarters! This app is also super fun! It’s a fun way to communicate because when your kids go into their teen years, it’s not “cool” to text any more so this will be super fun! There’s all types of wonderful filters on this app which makes it amazing too! There are some cons but overall this is an amazing app!:)
  • Performance issues Oct 4, 2020

    By Savvanananahhh
    For the most part I quite enjoy Snapchat it’s probably the most used app I have on my phone because it’s really convenient for messaging people especially when my texting doesn’t work based on various locations, like text messages don’t go through when I’m at school buildings but Snapchat messages will. I think it’s quite useful and it’s very fun to use, however lately I’ve been experiencing some problems with loading times. For the past maybe two months it’s taking a good 10 seconds to load in a text that I got, and another three to save that text. I’ve been on various Wi-Fi connections as well as using my data and no matter the change between Wi-Fi or data the problem does not get fixed so I know that’s not the issue. Recently I found that deleting some of the things that take up storage on my phone help with the performance however this time that has not worked. I do think that this is some thing Snapchat needs to look into as a problem since it is one of the main communication apps. Have the time I to get annoyed with it taking so long to load that I just use text message instead of Snapchat but it’s just not the same and I wish I didn’t have to resort to it. I hope Snapchat fixes this problem soon.
  • Great app and all but FIX THIS Jul 11, 2020

    By Cakegirl300
    My Snapchat, along with many others, has suddenly started malfunctioning. I’ll send my streaks, and then it’ll say they sent, but then if I check later on, it says that only the streaks from the day before sent and makes it seem as though I haven’t sent or received anything, even though I know I have cause it said delivered before and it said I had 15 snaps, but then they all disappeared. And then when they all reappeared it wouldn’t let me open a few of them. It also deleted the videos off of my story from the day before. And it hasn’t been letting me view certain stories. Like I’ll try to few them, and it’ll just glitch me onto another story. This seems to only happen when it’s a video on the story. I tried restarting my phone, and I even tried logging out and back in on my Snapchat account, but after attempting this, it wouldn’t even let me back in the app. Like I would try to open it and it would just immediately crash. I talked to my friends and several of them are having the same issues as well. I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it and now it’s taking forever to reinstall, like longer than usual. Idk what’s going on but PLEASE FIX IT SOON!
  • Dark mode? Mar 2, 2020

    By DoctorWhovian66
    I’ve had Snapchat for several years now, and it’s always been one of (if not my favorite) social media platform. It’s easy and fun to use, and it’s a great way to keep in contact with friends. All the filters make for some great selfie-taking, and you really get a personalized experience, which I love. The only thing I wish was different is that there is no dark mode. I have an iPhone, and Apple has been super receptive to feedback when it came to allowing a dark mode for phones. It’s really an awesome feature, since even on the lowest brightness you could burn out your corneas with the pure white screens of the App Store, iMessage, iTunes, and more. Thankfully, those are all in dark mode now, which is great in the middle of the night as well as in broad daylight. I really wish Snapchat would look into making a dark mode for their users as well, since lots of people (myself included) really prefer dark mode. There’s something about the look of it that I love, and an added bonus is that I don’t go blind at nighttime. I wish I could say the same for snap. Snapchat, please consider a dark mode for your users. I don’t think I’m the only person that would like to have it.
  • Ad Glitch and Suggestions Jul 4, 2021

    By Bellastar117
    So, I started back in March 2019, but got a new phone that December and made a new account. I went a few months without any problems, but then one day ads just stopped playing. Even in games when prompted for an ad, it would give me a pop-up instead. I was happy, I could watch stories and play games uninterrupted. But today they came back. At first I was excited because the glitch was resolved, but there are a lot of ads, a lot more than I remembered. I doubt the developers will even read this, but if they do, I have a few suggestions about the glitch and about other things. Starting with the glitch, I recommend an option to pay to have no ads, even when prompted, or no ads unless prompted, or simply post less ads. I do have a suggestion on filters. First, when you open up the filters, the first filters there should be your 5 most used favorites, so users don’t have to scroll through their filters to find them, and then the rest will be random and refresh daily. I take a photo with a filter once and it never goes away. Finally, I have a suggestion on the Spotlight page. There should be a way to “follow” people’s spotlight pages so you can keep track of what they post, and possibly even be notified of it. Second, there should be a comment section, it’s fun to interact with others in comments about the thing you’re watching. That’s all, that’s my entire review. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    This is the only app I use to talk to a good friend of mine. I've used it since the beginning of this year, we would send messages, memes and videos. A few months ago, I lost the ability to send anything over 60 seconds, while he can still send videos to me that are significantly longer. The general glitches are frustrating enough but this has become a great deal of stress. If I want to send anything, I have to cut it into several parts. It takes almost an hour to prep anything for sending.
  • What happened? Oct 14, 2020

    By Idek 9-101112
    I’m sorry to say it, but something is definitely wrong with Snapchat. In all my years of using the app, I have never been this disappointed. Although Snapchat is my main social app on my phone, it has been really bugging me. For example, it has been taking up to 5 minutes to send a chat everytime I try to send something. Before I am told my phone is slow, let me reassure you this is not only a problem for me but for my peers as well. Also, I have been receiving Snapchat’s from WEEKS ago, leaving the other person to conclude I have been ignoring them. When it is taking 4 weeks for a singular snap to come through, there is an obvious problem with the app. Likewise, my peers and I have noticed that when somebody responds to me, it’s very slow and won’t load or I don’t get it at all. Just the other day I received a snap, and when I asked about it I learned it had said I left them on opened whereas for me it said I had been left on delivered. The amount of time I have wasted trying to solve this problem along with the taking 5 minutes to send one thing problem, I could have been doing other things, so I have been veering off the app. Unfortunately, I do not think this app will be worth it, especially if it keeps traveling downhill at this rate. Maybe, if we weren’t so worried about how the app looks we could worry about how it has been working. My peers and I have tried deleting the app, updating, but nothing seems to work.
  • STORY ORGANIZATION RUINED! Jul 31, 2020

    By William Quintana
    Snapchat update ruined my story organization! Ok so a thing that I really like to do is save my stories to my memories (like everyone else) and I save every. Single. Story. And I have Snapchat automatically save my stories for me but I also manually save them because Snapchat doesn’t save stuff that you posted from your camera roll so I wanna make sure I have everything there. So I’ll have like 2 or 3 stories in my memories that are similar but not all the same. So I just combine all of them and they would organize themselves by post date and I can get rid of the duplicates and have it be a nice, organized story just like how I posted them. But now, I don’t know what happened, but I think an update ruined how my stories organize. Whenever I combine my stories so that I can organize it, they won’t organize themselves by post date anymore. They just add to the end so the memory is now all wonky and out of place and I’m very disappointed. I wanna be able to add stuff to my snap memories so whenever I look back at them, I can relive the whole day of when I posted those again. Please fix this Snapchat. It was completely fine before! At least make it to where you can individually move a snap to wherever in the memory you want it. What’s the point of adding things to a snap story memory if you aren’t able to put it wherever in the story you want it in so that the story is organized by when they were posted??

    This is one of my most used apps but I have a samsung (an android), which means with along many other androids, Snapchat tends to delay updates for android phones for MONTHS while iPhone gets them right away. The app is very well made and a good system to text and talk, but if you have an android, you wont be getting the same full experience and extras that iPhone users will be getting.
  • Fix your app, or help me. Jul 12, 2021

    By UrSaDkId
    Hello, if you are reading this review then I would tell you I highly recommend Snapchat as apart of today's social media, but as of recently. I have been having some issues and it's been terrible. For the past day or two. Everything was fine at first. I would text and call my friends, continue to make posts online, personalize my account and do virtual everything social media was made for. But as of this morning, Sunday July 11th, to this morning of July 12th, everytime I go back to Snapchat, I get a notification that says "looks like you don't have your camera enabled, go into settling as and turn on blah blah blah" you get the jist of it. So I think, oh well everything its fine just have to turn my camera back on and stuff. Turns out that's not the case. When I go back to settings on my iPhone 7 there is no where that says "camera access" or "microphone access" and my Instagram has been doing the same thing. I'm stuck at the beginning of the app because it doesn't recognize that my camera and mic aren't already on. And I've been using Snapchat and Instagram for over a year now so how could this happen? I love Snapchat and Instagram. I really do. It's my main sources of social media. But right now for me everything has been terrible. I can't talk to my friends and I can't even take a picture on snap which means I'm gonna loose all my streaks.

    The developers need to give optimization to the Android users ASAP, seems like they're only putting in effort for Apple users. Ever since the new "update", the text on my snaps randomly move all the way to the left side once I post them. Also, when viewing snaps from friends they are zoomed in a bit which is annoying because their text is cut off from the borders. Another of the several issues is dark mode...we don't have the option but apple users do. PlEASE fix this. I'm an S20 ultra user btw
  • Far to many ads in such a short amount of time in discovery vids May 24, 2021

    By Hayden2705
    I have been using Snapchat for many and many years like since the beginning whenever the app was first launched. I’ve always like loved snap and have started to watch the “discovery” sections. The point of me writing my review is to talk about the discovery stories. Discovery stories are random popular people, channels and such that play highlighted parts from their vids or snaps. The main complaint I have is that there is LITERALLY AN AD every like TEN SECONDS that last like 6 seconds and you can’t skip them. Sometimes I get very into whatever random discover Snapchat channel thing I found but getting an ad every 10 seconds makes me not even want to watch them anymore!.. their SO ANNOYING! I understand Snapchat’s gotta make revenue through ads but throwing them in your face every freaking second is ridicules. Maybe one every 3 or 4 mins would be more viable but getting one every like no more than 30 seconds kills the mood to even want to return to the discover section. They should call it “make us money by spending more time watching a crap ton of ads far more than enjoying and viewing the clips”. Other than that I still love Snapchat and will continue to use it everyday, I just won’t be viewing the discover section because I refuse to watch a 6 second every 10-15 seconds.

    This new update is so ugly. I absolutely hate how it looks when you go into a chat and want to send a saved pic/video from your camera roll. And now you can't send videos from your camera roll that are longer than a minute? That's so stupid. That's why I use Snapchat over other apps. And there's still no dark mode. Apple has dark mode, but android doesn't. Why?

    Really over the lack in effort for Android Snapchat. iOS users get every feature first and the everything is designed for the shape/size of an iPhone screen, which is wider than Galaxy screens so words and images get cut in stories and chats. Considering this is a top social media platform, it's disappointing. Filters are cute so I keep using it but that's the extent of use.

    As an android user, the text moves to the left side sometimes, the updates NEVER install and you have to remove tons of apps, the snapmap glitches and takes 10+ minutes to load. Overall not the best app but I've been using it for a long time so I can only say this much!! The issues need to be fixed
  • i’m annoyed Aug 16, 2020

    By Pineconequeens
    i have a serious bone to pick with yall ever since you started allowing a minute long snapchat videos. let me just say- great addition, amazing idea, i love the minute long videos. HOWEVER. when i am going absolutely OFF in a snapchat video to send to the group chat, the last thing i need is the third snap to be sent first, then the first, then the fifth, etc. I just want the snaps to be sent in order, otherwise the purpose is defeated. I’ve seen a “waiting to send” text pop up recently, but i don’t think it’s waiting to send the second snap after the first. it’s just waiting to send the next collection of videos (because let’s face it, I send like five minutes of videos). It’s great for communication with my friends, but not when the first snap that loads is sent out of order. no one knows what i’m talking about. the whole premise of snapchat is photos and videos, but it seems the app is more focused on news stories and weird emojis. I can get news anywhere, preferably anywhere but snapchat. I just want my videos sent in order. Great app idea, but it’s getting ruined by all the new options. Please perfect the thing that made everyone get the app in the first place before you add new mechanics. Overall, please send snapchat videos in order. Otherwise I might as well be recording 10 seconds at a time again.

    This app is piss poor. It always has been. Both in terms of performance and camera quality. But you continue to add features nobody asked for and refuse to solve bugs that have existed for literal years. The last update basically completely unformats your text before posting, so everything is default font/size and smashed against the left side of the screen. For once in you lives, can you please actually attempt at FIXING something?
  • No Help When Needed Jul 15, 2020

    By hollyheathh
    My snapchat got hacked about a month ago, which i know isn’t entirely their fault. But i went through every step they told me too do and they still haven’t helped!! They keep saying my email isn’t the one associated with the account, which makes no sense because the only reason i knew someone was trying to hack me is because i got an email about it FROM SNAPCHAT! They have no customer service phone number so everytime i try to reach out i get the EXACT SAME MESSAGE. Even though i write in the help box that i keep getting the same message and keep asking them to contact me in a different way for more help and i repeatedly get told the same thing. So my private photos on snapchat are now being viewed by someone i don’t know and there is nothing i can do about it i can’t even deactivate the account. Very unpleased with the company. So many privacy issues and customer service issues that need fixed. I can prove that it’s my snapchat by just the phone number connected and the fact that I can’t even make a new account until I confirm that i want all the pictures saved to be deleted. I want to take legal action just because someone could steal my photos, phone number, email address! They can talk to people without me knowing and give my personal information all because this hasn’t been handled properly. If I could give them zero stars I would. BE SUPER CAREFUL DOWNLOADING THIS APP OR YOUR PRIVACY WILL BE BREACHED.

    New update for friends stories freaking sucks. I feel that it's more confusing to have to swip up to skip (like tik tok) don't know why you did that it was just fine before. Swipe left or right to exit. Why is that? Why not just swipe down like before? Seems a lot easier. When i swipe left it pulls up the chat bar. When i swipe right it closes out the story when i swipe up or down it shows the previous or next snap just like tik tok. Its dumb that it changed and its dumb u ripping of another app
  • Locked account for no reason at all. Apr 30, 2021

    By thatmf7k
    My first account that was locked was an account i had since elementary, i had so many memories, pictures and friends on it. all of a sudden i get locked out (snapchat didn’t tell me a reason even after i contacted them) i was never able to log into that account. After months i made a new snapchat account this account was literally so new i barely had about 70 friends... Next thing you know i get locked out , i unlocked it using my email but a few hours later i get locked out again and again until the account was permanently deleted apparently for “suspicion” when the account was barely made, not even 24 hours i had that account... i stopped using snapchat cause i was frustrated with them locking my account until YESTERDAY, i made a new account so i can keep in touch with my friends from another state and since i missed using it. Not even an hour into setting the account and stuff, i get locked out. it locked me out about 9 times until about an hour ago it was permanently locked. i contacted snapchat and they sent a bot to respond with why my account got locked which none of those reasons had nothing to do with me because One, i wasn’t switching devices, i wasn’t hacking or anything like that, and i wasnt adding people without my email being verified. i have proof both my email and number were verified so they had no reason to lock my account.
  • Locked account Aug 22, 2020

    By BuRnT cHiCkEn :3
    I have had my snap account for a while but then I wanted to create a new one and so I did. I only lasted three days with the new account at first it was just locked for a few minutes and I was ok with that I logged back in and everything was fine a minute didn’t even pass and my account was permanently LOCKED!!!! I was confused as to why since I wasn’t doing anything wrong and harmless. I decided to make a another account this morning. Everything was fine until IT GOT LOCKED AGAIN!!!!!! I didn’t even last two hours with it, I logged back in and was talking to my friend all of a sudden it kicks me out of my account AGAIN! I was really frustrated because I wasn’t doing absolutely nothing just having fun talking to my friends. I went to the website and realized my account was PERMANENTLY LOCKED AGAIN!!!!!!!! I gave up at this point and would like to know why this is happening. I’m getting so angry at this. Might as well delete the app since I can’t even make an account. This locked thing is getting me irritated. I would like an explanation. And the fact that you guys don’t have a personal support email so we can contact you guys instead of using the website which is pretty difficult and would be much easier if you guys had an email. Anyways I would like to know why my account is getting locked without lasting a WHOLE DAY! And I’m doing nothing wrong and still question why this is happening to me.

    The new update is actually terrible I keep getting glitches lines of other apps really fast and it's only on snapchat. I let my phone completely die out, I've reset it, I've logged put and deleted snapchat multiple times bit it doesn't work. Slow down and actually take the time to properly fix this instead of rushing it or the app will end up even worse without and users.

    By iona.pettigrew
    the new snap update is horrible. i hate how you can’t swipe down to see the map. also with ios 14, my pictures are lighter and worse quality. why can’t you just keep it the same for once. i have been using snapchat for years and there are a couple things that i honestly would love to see and thought i would have already seen. first and foremost, DARK MODE. it is so annoying when all my other apps have a dark mode but then i go to snapchat and it is bright white. i also think it would be a good feature to have it where you can select all your steaks so you don’t i have to individually choose each one. it would also be nice to have more freedom of who is on my best friend list. more of the people i want to talk to and less of who snaps back quickest. i also think there should be an emoji for when you are someone’s number on best friend but they are not yours. it would also be nice to be able to see a history of the filters i have used. i know there is favoriting now, but before that, there are filters i can’t find now. another thing is being able to have more people pinned, and you could hide them in a folder then open the folder on top so that it doesn’t take up the whole screen. it would also be nice when you are replying to a bulk amount of people that there was a select all button. just a few things i would change.

    Camera quality is embarrassingly horrible on a Galaxy S10+ which makes the whole app pretty much pointless. You might think you've taken a cute video but as soon as you try to upload/send it, the quality drops to where its choppy and pixelated and the audio is fuzzy and doesnt line up with the video. Pictures are low quality and usually out of focus/blurry. Flash is useless. Never had this problem with an iphone. They need to take the time to at least try and optimize the app for Android.

    It's ok but it litterally NEVER updates for me and it is getting extremely annoying(I'm about to delete it). I feel like it has something to do with having a Samsung and if so that's bull. Also if you want to play music for a snap you can only choose what the creators put on there, there isnt any rock, heavy metal, reagea, and barely any country it's only rap and pop. You can't pin people or put it on dark mode either. Now my letters are huge. Please fix everything!
