Upload Snapchat stories to Instagram

With the high popularity of Instagram, people love making their own stories on Instagram which is similar to Snapchat stories where you can upload a photo/video with a caption, that will disappear after 24 hours. Snapchat is another dramatically fast story, picture, and video sharing app that influenced the implementation of Instagram stories. Ever since the release of Instagram stories, people have started to shift from Snapchat to Instagram due to the fact there are more users on Instagram than Snapchat, meaning more exposure. Backing up photos/videos on Snapchat was a major issue until the release of Snapchat Memories, which allows you to save your media files to phone’s storage and backup your media files online for later use.
