- Ensure that your Android smartphone is rooted and has the Xposed Framework installed
- Navigate to the Xposed Framework installer and search for the ‘Snapchat full caption’ module, tap on it and hit ‘Download’
- Once the Snapchat full caption module for Xposed Framework on your rooted Android has been successfully installed, you can type any length of message into your Snapchat messages

Why would I want to copy and paste text on Snapchat on Android?
Snapchat is one of the world’s most popular social media messaging apps around today, its unique selling point being the novelty of messages between you and your friends disappearing 24 hours after being opened.
Snapchat’s 360+ million monthly users exchange an absolutely unbelievable number of messages between each other on a daily basis. At some point, as a Snapchat user, you’re undoubtedly going to come up against a message from a friend or acquaintance of yours which you want to copy and paste.
You might want to do this so that you can send something funny or insightful to another friend, or because the message was sweet and you want to remember it by saving it to your ‘Notes’ app on your phone. After all, Snapchat messages disappear a short while after being opened, so copying and pasting them is really your only recourse to preservation.
Unlike WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram or some other social media app, however, it’s not always clear how to copy and paste text on Snapchat on Android. If you’d like to learn how to, simply follow our step-by-step tutorials above.
Can I copy and paste text on Snapchat on iOS devices (like iPhones)?
There are unfortunately different methods for copying and pasting text on Snapchat on iOS devices compared to the methods used by Android users. The very basic copy and paste functions, even, are slightly different.
However, when it comes to the method used for copying and pasting text (or empty space – to allow you to enter more than Snapchat’s standard 31 characters) from an external source (such as your ‘Notes’ or ‘Notepad’ app), the method is entirely different.
For iPhones, it’s generally easier to copy and paste text on Snapchat than it is for Androids. Nevertheless, by following our step-by-step instructions above, you shouldn’t have an issue.
Why can’t I copy and paste from my Android notes into Snapchat?
iOS makes it super easy to create lots of blank space in Snapchat to type longer messages, or even just to write out a message in Notes and then copy and paste it into Snapchat. Unfortunately, however, for some reason the same does not apply to Android users and their devices. We’re really not sure why this method doesn’t work on Androids, but it sure as heck is frustrating!
Nevertheless, whilst you might not be able to use the exact same method to copy and paste from Notes into Snapchat on iPhones as you would on Android, there is still an Android-specific way that should allow you to type as much as you like into a Snapchat message, thus overriding the 31 character cap and so negating your need to copy and paste from Notes.
To learn how, follow our step-by-step tutorials above.
Will my contacts know when I copy and paste their messages?
No, Snapchat will not inform your contact if and when you copy and paste the text from their messages. However, if you decide to screenshot their entire message (picture and all) then they will get a notification which reads “[Name] took a screenshot!”
