Failed To Send Snapchat Story Reply Mean:

This message appears when you try to send a reply to a story, but it doesn’t go through successfully.

This means that there could be a few things to consider. First, check your internet connection and make sure it’s stable. A weak or unreliable connection can prevent your reply from being sent. Additionally, ensure that you have a strong signal or a reliable Wi-Fi connection.

If you notice that your internet is working fine and the problem persists, there’s an alternative fix you can try. Instead of replying directly to the story, you can send a direct message to the person. This way, you can still communicate with them and share your thoughts about their story.

How To Fix If Snapchat Failed To Send:

If your Snapchat is always failing to send snaps even after multiple tries then these fixes might be helpful in solving the situation. In order to fix the error while sending the snaps to someone, you must be sure that you have a proper internet connection and if this happens to all users then your app needs an internal fix.

1. Reinstall Snapchat (bug in App)

Although, while the issue happens to only a particular person you can say that there is a single issue or internal issues on your app if that happens to all then you should update the app or reinstall Snapchat as this process can solve all internal errors if that is not a server end issue.


If you are facing the error, ‘Failed to send’, one of the solutions is that you uninstall your app and then reinstall it again. Log in by entering all the specific details by providing your Snap ID, and other credentials asked. By doing so, users can send their snaps to their friends. Reinstalling the app removes or eliminates the bug that has caused this error.

2. Connect to Wi-Fi if the Internet is Slow

If you have a poor internet connection you would know that the file is getting trouble sending and this may be the reason that shows the sending failed error on your Snapchat. Now, if you just directly reinstall Snapchat, you would notice that the messages disappeared that were showing a ‘Failed to send’ error, and now you can retry sending fresh snaps and before that connect to a proper internet connection.

Also, it is recommended that if you have a slow internet connection just try sending snaps one by one if you are sending them to multiple friends, this way you can ignore the error to pop up.

Even after doing the above step of reinstalling the Snapchat App, if you are facing the error, then it is possibly due to a poor internet connection. You can eliminate this by switching your internet connection to a WiFi connection. WiFi provides a good internet connection with a good speed that your mobile data cannot have. Switch to a WiFi connection and send Snaps monotonously and quickly.

3. Contact Snapchat & Describe Issue

This is the final way you should try to fix the internal error. As I described if the error occurs with a particular person you have to give details of your username and about the chat with whom you’re facing the issue and most probably Snapchat would let you know once the issue is fixed or if something else. You can send an email to Snapchat support and the reply is prompt.

If you still are facing the error after attempting the above two steps, you should contact the Snapchat team. It is simple to approach the Snapchat team, follow the steps given:

Why Does It Say Failed To Send On Snapchat Story:

When you see the message “Failed to send” while trying to post a Snapchat story, it typically indicates an issue with your internet connection or the Snapchat app itself.

Here are a few possible reasons why this message may appear:

1. Due to Poor Internet Connection

If you have a poor internet connection and you are sending large files on Snapchat then this is the reason behind your failed Snapchat.

Although tapping on the file or message will retry sending once you connect to a good network connection, the same will be sent & show the ‘Delivered’ tag.

 Due to Poor Internet Connection

Failed to send Snapchat error is shown if there is a poor internet connection. A good internet connection is required to send Snapchat messages to your friends instantly within seconds.

However, if you have a poor internet network issue or no internet connection then it shows, ‘Failed to send Snapchat’.

2. Due to internal Snapchat App issues

If the issue is internal then only Snapchat can fix this error. Sometimes, the app gets fixed once you log out of the app and then log in again. This issue may be due to a bug in the app, so try fixing this by updating the app that may work as well. However, if nothing works write to the Snapchat support team.


Even if you have a good internet connection but still you face the error ‘Failed to send Snapchat’, then the only possible reason is the App itself. There may be some internal issues with the app. You just simply log out of your account and log in again. If the problem persists then uninstall and reinstall the Snapchat App.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Why Failed to Send Snapchat Won’t Go Away?

Failing to send Snapchat means the message or the photo that you were trying to send to your friend through Snapchat, is not yet delivered to the receiver. The messages that failed to deliver may be due to several issues and may not go away.

And when the message fails to deliver, it is annoying for both the sender and the receiver if they have an ongoing conversation. It breaks the continuity of the conversation.

This may either be due to a poor internet connection or due to some internal issue with the app itself.

2. How Many Snaps Can be Sent at Time?

There are no limits to the number of Snaps that you can send. It allows you to add filters to your photos and videos thereby offering you a touch of augmented reality. 

A newly added feature of Snapchat allows you to send snaps to 16 people from your list at once you need not have to individually send snaps anymore. This feature allows mass sending of Snaps unlike before when you have to send snaps individually.
