How To Unsend A Snap

If you sent a photo or video snaps to your friends on Snapchat, and wants to unsend them before they get to see them, it’s quite unfortunate that Snapchat doesn’t allow us to unsend a snap but, the only thing you can do is to delete the message.

Deleting the snap will remove it but, each member of the chat will be notified that a sent file has been removed.

You can remove the following files from your Snapchat conversations:

  1. Text Messages
  2. Stickers
  3. Audio Files
  4. Image and Video Files Sent Through the Memory Tab

  2. Tap on Delete.

Why Can’t You Unsend Photo and Video Snaps?

Users discovered certain tricks that worked for unsending photo or video snaps in older versions of the Snapchat app. See the guides below:

  1. Turn airplane mode on
  2. Remove the snap recipient from the sender’s friend list
  3. Blocking the snap recipient
  4. Sign out of the sender’s account
  5. Uninstall the app from the sender’s device
