Spotlight on Snapchat can be taken as the same thing like YouTube shorts or reels on Instagram or Facebook. There is just a difference of name but when we compare all these features of social media platforms they seem to be same.
Especially speaking, YouTube shorts, Instagram reels, Facebook reels and Snapchat spotlight are very similar features.
Spotlight can go viral in days and that is the reason you can use this feature to expand your reach on Snapchat. But not all of us like this or there may be any other reason why they ask: How to delete spotlight videos. This is our topic for this blog post.
There are several misconceptions about this query and we will try to discuss them all. For deleting spotlight you will have to find out “Who can” option under your account settings on Snapchat >> “View my Spotlight posts” >> toggle off the switch in front of “Spotlight” option. That is all.
However, if you are thinking about disabling this feature then you will have to downgrade your Snap app or you can disable notifications for Spotlight videos.
However, if you have enough time then we would like to suggest you: how to see added favourites on spotlight

- Here you will see the delete option in front of every video. You can delete which you want to.
How to disable Spotlight on Snapchat?
If you are thinking about getting rid of the spotlight by removing the feature then I will tell you: It is not possible. You can’t remove the entire feature unless you downgrade because this feature is part of the app.

You can see there is a video which I have liked and added in favourites but I am not seeing any option to remove it from spotlight favourites. You will need to open that video again >> tap again on “heart” icon to remove the video from spotlight favourites. Once you do this you will see it is not there anymore.

There is another way if you are an Iphone user: open “Siri & search” option in settings on your iphone >> tap on “Siri and dictation history” >> tap on “Delete” >> go back and toggle off the “Show in app library and spotlight” option.
