Method #2. Using Screen Recorder

Another way using which you can take Snapchat Screenshot is by using a Screen Recorder Application. I know this method is quite annoying but it seems helpful. Snapchat doesn’t detect whether you are using a Screen Recorder application. So, taking advantage of this issue, we can easily take Snapchat Screenshot without any detection.

  • When the recording process is on, go through the stories which you want to capture.
  • Once you have visited all the stories which you wanted to Screenshot, you can stop the recording and save the file.

#3. Using the Google Assistant

Another working way to save Snapchat Photos without notifying the sender. This method also doesn’t need any third-party application. All you need is Google’s Now on Tap feature. This feature was first introduced with the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is also known as Google Assistant. Make sure that the feature is enabled on your smartphone to use this method. Here is how to do:

  • Open Snapchat and go to the Photos which you want to take a Screenshot.
  • Tap on the Home Button and launch the Google Assistant by saying “Ok Google”.
  • Ask the Google Assistant to “Take a Screenshot” to capture the screen. You can also type this command.
