Snapchat wants to help you relive your best 2017 memories

At least, for those of you who have any fond memories of this garbage year.

If you haven't had enough reminders of how the year 2017 went, Snapchat is here for you. The Next Web noticed that the social media service is offering its users "Your 2017 Story," which takes Snaps saved to your Memories over the year (the permanent ones you select, not the fleeting ones that disappear after 24 hours) and creates a story you can easily save and share.

To locate the option to create a story for 2017, launch the Snapchat app and open Memories, which is at the bottom of the screen. If you have enough Memories saved from the year, the option to create Your 2017 Story should be up top. If you don't like the options that Snapchat selects for you, the team at Snap says that you will be able to edit it.

It's understandable that Snap would be playing on our nostalgia by getting into the retrospective game, though it's unclear who actually wants to be reminded just how garbage of a year 2017 was. Still, it's a great way to remind lapsed users to come and check out the service again.
