You can now share links directly to friends in Snapchat from the iPhone share options, but you need to turn it on to use the new feature. Here’s how to turn on Snapchat link sharing, and how you can use it to share a link with a friend right from Safari or other apps.

Snapchat added the new sharing option to the iPhone app alongside a new Ghost Mode that lets you stop sharing your location on Snap Maps for a set period of time up to 24 hours, or turn it off completely.

After you turn this feature on, you simply need to find a link you want to share and then you can send it to your Snapchat friends without copying, opening the app, going to chat, finding the person and pasting the link. Now it’s super-fast and really convenient.

  1. Find a link to share.
  2. Tap on the Share icon.
  3. Tap on the Snapchat icon.
  4. Choose who to send it to.
  5. Add a message if you want to.
  6. Hit Send.

That’s all you need to do. You can send this to multiple friends at once without making it a group message. You cannot share to a group chat from this menu at this time. This moves the Snapchat chat to the top of your chat screen.
