It looks like Snapchat is likely going to be added to the list of social media platforms that provide you extra features for a paid subscription.
Liz Markman, the spokesperson of Snap (Snapchat’s parent company), confirmed on Thursday that they are going to introduce a new subscription plan to the service. According to Markman, the service is already under internal testing. The service is going to be called Snapchat Plus.
“We’re doing early internal testing of Snapchat Plus, a new subscription service for Snapchatters. We’re excited about the potential to share exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features with our subscribers, and learn more about how we can best serve our community.”Liz Markman, spokesperson of Snap.
In a strange turn of events, it was not the Snap spokesperson but a mobile developer and reserve engineer named Alessandro Paluzzi who revealed more about the product. As stated in the information and pictures that he posted on his Twitter, Snapchat Plus will be giving you the ability to pin 1 of your friends as your “#1BFF.”
The company is planning to charge 4.59 euros for a one-month subscription and 45.99 euros for a one-year subscription. In this premium plan, Snapchat Plus also plans to give you exclusive Snapchat icons for your devices and a badge will be displayed on your profile, probably to distinguish your profile from others.
You will also have the ability to check who are the people that rewatch your stories and if a friend chooses to share their location with you, you will get access to their whereabouts over the last 24 hours. Telegram too, confirmed that it has been working on a premium subscription. This will also be the first subscription product for Snapchat.
