Recently, the app introduced a new feature called Discover Messages that allows users to snap something interesting to their friends, who can view it and then tap on a link to post on Discover.

One of the exciting and unique features is that all your messages including photos and videos that you send or receive will be automatically deleted after viewing or after 24 hours.

In recent times, the platform has acquired millions of users just because of the idea that messages automatically disappear after some time. But people keep deleting conversations mistakenly and sometimes intentionally.

Method 3: View Old Snapchat Messages with mSpy

The best alternative to recover deleted Snapchat messages is mSpy, a device monitoring service with which you can record all the actions you take on your phone. By installing it you can create a complete record of all your conversations, including messages and multimedia files that you have shared, regardless of whether they have been deleted manually, or because the expiration time has elapsed.

mSpy has to be configured beforehand to start storing data, so you won’t be able to recover any deleted messages before installation. Additionally, the application can also record conversations through other social networks such as Instagram and Facebook and instant messaging services such as WhatsApp and Telegram.
