Step 4: Select Your 2023 Recap to watch your recap.

Step 5: At any point while watching your Snapchat Recap, select Story to add it to your story, or select Send To to send it to a specific friend/group chat.

Step 6: Depending on what you posted to Snapchat in 2023, you'll see your Recap broken into a few different categories. For example, if you posted any photos/videos near oceans and lakes, you'll see those in a "Beach Please" category. If you were an avid selfie-taker in 2023, some of your highlights will appear in a "Felt Cute, Will Delete Later" section.

And that's all there is to it! You can view your Snapchat Recap 2023 as often as you'd like, so feel free to come back and view it however often you want.

Snapchat is just one of many apps offering 2023 recaps right now. You can also find your Duolingo Year in Review, Reddit Recap, Spotify Wrapped, Apple Music Replay, and more.
