  1. Yes, go into memories, in the top right corner there is a circles check mark, tap that. Then select any individual snap, snap video, or story. (You can select multiple) then tap the upload icon in the bottom left corner, this will bring up your option to save it to your phone. This is on iPhone 6s

    • A bit tedious, but go into memories (swipe up from camera), tap on the snap you want to save (I’ve only been able to do one at a time), tap on the image and tap on ‘edit and send’ at the bottom. Then, tap on the three horizontal lined icon on the top right, and select ‘save to camera roll’. 🙂 Hope this helps!!

  3. For ANDROID users, to save from MEMORIES to Camera Roll: Open a snap in Memories, swipe up to ‘Edit and Send’, tap on the drop down menu on top left corner, then ‘save to Camera Roll’.

    Note – This can only be done individually, one snap at a time.
    You’re welcome.

      • I have the same problem. Trying to save a video from memories and it reports “save failed” I have 20 gb free on my phone so that’s not an issue.

    • Did you try opening the video from memories, and then holding down on the screen, a menu pops up on the right that allows you to save to your camera roll. Hope this helps, I have a Note 4.

  7. I’ve found a way to save memories on your camera roll on android:
    Click and hold on the picture you want to save and when you let go there should be a black border around it. At the top it should say ‘My Snap’. There will be three lines on the top right, click on it and it will allow you to save it on the camera roll.

  12. go to memories click on the circle with the tick in the right hand corner select the photos you want to move once that’s done click on the circle with the + and it turns it into a story once that’s done hold it down click export and save as individual photos to your camera roll, it might take a while depending on how many photos you want to move. that’s for android 🙂
