Google Assistant will take a screenshot for you and will save it on your device for further use. This way Snapchat will not be able to detect the action, hence there will be no notification sent to them.

Snapchat Screenshot On The Iphone

The users on iPhone or IOS devices were able to take the screenshot without Snapchat notifying them. But there was an update in May of 2021 for IOS devices that prevent screenshotting.

Some of the 3rd party apps which were available on the app stores became completely useless after the update. Trying this application didn’t work at all, the users were still getting the notification.

So if you rely on the third-party apps for the screenshot you might need some other consideration after the update, some developers are working on a workaround, for that you have to be updated on the app’s in-app store.

For now, we have two solutions for iPhone users is, they can use devices with other OS-supported Phones or Tablets to capture the screenshot.

Or try to use the above methods on your IOS device, see if that works, try out this with your friend’s device who does not care about taking the screenshot, in some cases, it might work.
