If you are wondering how you can download all the Snapchat memories at once, then we have you covered right here.

Now, you cannot export all the existing Memories at once. There are two ways to export them – you can export them individually one by one, or you can export multiple images at once. There is an easier way around it – you can select a bunch of photos month-by-month. 

In this guide, we will show you how to download multiple Snapchat Memories simultaneously and also adjust settings so all the new memories will be saved on your device automatically. 

Quick Answer

Open Snapchat > Go to Memories > Select a photo by long pressing on it > Click on ‘Select All’ to select photos for each month > Click on ‘Send’ button > Click on ‘Download’ to download the Snaps to the camera roll.

How to export multiple Snapchat Memories at once

If you want to save your existing Snapchat Memories onto your device, then follow these steps. 



Go to Memories

Open Snapchat and go to Snapchat Memories by clicking on the ‘photograph’ icon. Here, you will see your Memories, that is, the photos taken using the Snapchat camera.

Select photos

Now, long press on a photo to select it. Then, click on the ‘Select all’ option that appears above (next in line to the month. In this case, ‘Select all’ is next to April 2024). When you click on Select All, all the photos for that month will be selected.

Change Save Button settings

In the Memories menu, under the Save Destinations, click on the ‘Save Button.’ Here, you will see three options – choose the ‘Memories & Camera Roll’ option. This means that when you click a Snap and click on ‘Save,’ the Snap will be saved to Memories as well as your device – you won’t have to export it.

Can I download all Snapchat memories at once?

No, you cannot download all Snapchat memories with one click. As mentioned in our guide, you can select photos month-by-month. So you will have to click ‘Select All’ for every month to save all the snaps to your device.

Why can’t I export snaps to camera roll?

For you to be able to export Snaps to your device, you will need to enable the permissions first. If you haven’t granted Snapchat permission to access or save files to your device storage (file manager), your Snaps will not be exported.


To sum up, you cannot export all Snapchat Memories to Camera Roll at once with a single click. However, you can select Snaps month-by-month together – so it will take a few clicks to export all Snaps. To save the future Snaps automatically, change the Save button settings to Memories & Camera Roll.
