Snapchat Changes How to Replay a Snap, Allowing Users to Buy More Replays

Snapchat changes how to replay a snap, allowing users to buy more replays if they desire. This feature is now auto-enabled. To use it, long-tap a Snap to replay it.

The change comes after a September 15 app update, that also introduced new animated selfie lenses

If you touch a Snap you have already received and hold your finger to the screen, then a pop up should appear asking if you want to replay the Snap.

If you replay the Snap, the user who sent the Snap will see a notification. If you want to replay it more than once, another pop up will appear giving you a menu of replay packages to choose from.

Today, U.S. Snapchatters can purchase extra Replays, starting at 3 for $0.99. You can use a Replay on any Snap you receive, but you can only Replay any Snap once. They’re a little pricey — but time is money! 😉

Dropbox gives you 2GB of free memory. Gmail offers up to 15GB free, shared with your Drive and Photos. Snapchat too gives you a free replay, so why can’t they charge users who want to view more?

Users can only replay a Snap once every 24 hours. If you get a lot of Snaps every day, then maybe you want to replay more than one Snap.

Snapchat’s CEO has said in the past that they plan on creating unique experiences that their users may want to pay for. But is this something you’re willing to shell out cash for?
