First, open up the Snapchat app. Right away you will be on the main screen, which is your camera. 

You can do a lot with the camera, but here are some of the things you can do: take a picture, record a short/long video, add stickers/GIFs, apply filters, and much more. 

Snapchat’s camera editing features have grown significantly since its launch, so by now in 2021 you have plenty of options. Anyways, once you decide what you want to do, take a snap. This is done with the large white circle at the bottom middle of the screen. 

Tap it once to take a photo, or hold it down to record a video and release it when you want to stop recording.

Tap the Link Icon and Add your Link

On the right side of the screen, there will be several options for stuff to do to your snap. You can add text, stickers, draw, and more. 

To add a link to the Snapchat story, select the paperclip icon. Once you do this, you can paste a previously copied URL or type in the URL itself. 

Either way, this will add the link.
