Does Snapchat Show When You Replay a Story?
No, you will not get notified when someone replays your Snapchat story. Snapchat only allows you to see the view count and the profiles who saw the story. However, the replay count is not shown to you unless you have purchased the Snapchat+ subscription.
Note: Snapchat users may be able to see if the recipient has seen their private story twice. It doesn’t apply to public stories.
When You Rewatch a Snapchat Story, Does Your Name Go to the Top?
No, when you rewatch a story on Snapchat, your name does not go to the top. Story views on Snapchat are organized chronologically, with the most recent viewers appearing at the top and the oldest viewers at the bottom. The order of viewers’ names is based on the time they viewed the story. If you are rewatching your own story, your name will not appear at the top because Snapchat recognizes you as the creator and does not count your view. This ensures an accurate view count by counting unique views from different users.
Note: Only Snapchat+ users can see who has replayed their Snaps or stories, which helps them understand which content is most engaging for their audience.
How Do You Replay Someone’s Story on Snapchat?
To replay someone’s story on Snapchat, follow these steps:
2. Swipe right from the camera screen to open the Stories tab.
3. Now, locate and tap on the Replay icon from the desired story you want to replay.
Note: Not all stories can be replayed. If the person who posted the story has disabled the replay feature, then you will not be able to replay their story. Also, some stories may be set to private, meaning that only certain friends can view them, and you may not have permission to replay them.
How to Know If Someone Replayed Your Snap Story?
Snapchat provides a feature to Snapchat+ users that allows them to see how many times their stories have been replayed. If you are a Snapchat+ subscriber, you can see the rewatch count, but you cannot know who replayed your story.
Follow the steps given below to know if someone has replayed your snap story:
1. Open the Snapchat app and tap on your Bitmoji icon.
2. Tap on the Settings gear icon from the top right corner.
3. Tap on Snapchat+ and turn on the toggle for the Story Rewatch Count.
4. Now, go back to the profile screen and tap on the desired posted story from the My Stories section.
5. Tap on the Rewatch icon from the bottom of the story to see the rewatch count.
There is no way to know which friends have replayed your story. Only the total number of replays by all friends is shown in the Rewatch indicator.
