How to Retrieve Deleted Memories on Snapchat

This wikiHow will teach you how to retrieve deleted Memories on Snapchat using Recoverit with your Android phone or tablet, which will allow you to access deleted images on your Android. If you use an iPhone or iPad, you can use iCloud if you have that set up to restore a backup. However, if you keep a recent backup of your Snapchat account from Snapchat’s settings, you’ll be able to find your deleted Memories within that backup.


  1. Go to the Recoverit download page and click the Windows or macOS button. You can only do this with an Android phone or tablet since the file system works differently for iOS phones and tablets. There are two buttons displaying the Windows logo or macOS to indicate which button leads to which download.

    • Save the appropriate download file, then open it once it has finished downloading. Many browsers, like Chrome, give you a notification at the bottom of the window that you can click to open the downloaded file.
    • Once you open the downloaded file, follow the on-screen instructions to install Recoverit. For Mac users, this may include dragging and dropping an application from the downloaded file into the Applications folder in Finder. Windows users click Yes and Install through the pop-up prompts until installation is complete.
  2. Connect your Android to your computer via USB cable. Your Android should have come with a cable that can connect your Android and computer; you might have to change the permissions from your Android to allow the USB connection to file transfer.

Snapchat launches its TikTok rival, Sounds on Snapchat

Snapchat this summer announced it would soon release a new music-powered feature that would allow users to set their Snaps to music. Today, the company made good on that promise with the launch of “Sounds on Snapchat” on iOS, a feature that lets users enhance their Snaps with music from curated catalog of both emerging and established artists.

The music can be added to Snaps either pre or post capture, then shared without any limitations. You can post it to your Story or share directly with friends, as you choose.

At launch, the Snapchat music catalog offers “millions” of licensed songs from Snap’s music industry partners, the company says.

When users receive a Snap with Sounds, they can then swipe up to view the album art, the song title, and the name of the artist. There’s also a “Play This Song” link that lets you listen to the full song on your preferred streaming platform, including Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud.

This differentiates Snapchat’s music feature from rival TikTok, where a tap on the “sound” takes users to a page in the app that shows other videos using the same music clip. Only some of these pages also offer a link to play the full song, however.

To kick off the launch of the new Snapchat music feature, Justin Bieber and benny blanco’s new song “Lonely” will be offered as an exclusive in Snapchat’s Featured Sounds list today.

Music makes video creations and communication more expressive, and offers a personal way to recommend music to your closest friends,” notes the company, in announcement about the feature’s launch.

Snap had said in August it would begin testing the new music feature and detailed the deals that made the addition possible.

To power Sounds on Snapchat, the company forged multi-year agreements with major and independent publishers and labels, including Warner Music Group, Merlin (including their independent label members), NMPA, Universal Music Publishing Group, Warner Chappell Music, Kobalt, and BMG Music Publishing.

The move to introduce a music feature is meant to counter the growing threat of the ByteDance-owned TikTok app, which has popularized short-form video sharing with posts set to music from a large catalog.

Though TikTok’s future in the U.S. remains uncertain due to the ever-changing nature of the Trump administration’s TikTok ban (and an election that could upset those plans), it still remains one of the top U.S. apps, with around 100 million monthly active U.S. users as of August. (TikTok is currently engaged in a lawsuit to challenge its ban, so the app remains live today.)

Social media companies have capitalized on the chaos surrounding a possible TikTok U.S. exit to promote their alternatives, like Triller, Dubsmash, Byte, and others, including, of course Instagram Reels.

Snapchat, meanwhile, touts its traction with a younger user base as its new music feature goes to launch.

In the U.S., Snapchat now reaches 90% of all 13-24 year-olds, which the company notes is more than Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger combined. It also reaches 75% of all 13-34 year-olds and, o average, more than 4 billion Snaps are created every day.

The feature is live now on iOS to start.
