Snapchat Stories simply let phone users share daily stories about their lives with followers. It allows users to add photos and 10-second clips that will be made public to their Snapchat friends for 24 hours before it disappears.
The feature took over to the point that Facebook copied the idea into the platforms it owns, including Instagram and WhatsApp. Sadly, though, there is a huge error in Snapchat’s strategy, their application has always been hard to use.
The honest truth is that familiarizing with Snapchat takes quite some time, and new users always have to be patient enough to fully grab everything. In fact, if users fail to give it time, easy tasks like viewing their own story will be more confusing than they expect.
Luckily for you, however, this tutorial will break everything down for you till you have more than enough knowledge as to how the platform operates. Let’s explain all you need to know by showing you How To View Your Own Story On Snapchat:

- Tap on your Story and it will start playing automatically. Watch it as many times as you want and share it with those around you.
- After loading the page to view your Story, you will see an eye icon. This will indicate how many views you have and the accounts that viewed it. However, it will not tell you if one person viewed your Story more than once, it will only show you who watched it. Just see who viewed your Story and scroll up from the bottom and the list of viewers will be visible.
All You Should Know About Snapchat Story Timer?
You already know that your Snapchat Story will only be available for viewing for 24 hours. Three years ago, Snapchat launched a useful timer to reveal how much time we had left before our Story expired, however, this year, the timer is no longer available.
But if you check your Story, you will still be shown how long it has been active. From seconds to hours, open your story, and look in the upper left-hand corner.
How Can I View My Expired Stories?
You might be thinking that as soon as your Story expires, it will be impossible to view it. Luckily for you, Snapchat is home to a Memories feature that ensures your Story is saved for you to view in the future. Snapchat simply saves your Stories by default (in most cases,) so there are no instructions to follow. Just access “Memories” from the home screen (the recording screen) inside Snapchat.
Just locate the double-card icon to the left of the record button.
