Snapchat is a globally popular platform that millions of individuals are familiar with. While the social media service is generally free for all its users, it seems that a premium subscription plan will be entering the picture sometime soon. Snapchat users can expect to be greeted with the Snapchat Plus in the near future.
While the free version is already loaded with good features, Snapchat Plus is expected to be loaded with more exclusive functions and features.
Snapchat Plus launching soon
At first, news about the incoming Snapchat Plus was first revealed by the researcher and developer Alessandro Paluzzi. Later on, in an official confirmation with The Verge, Snap revealed that a premium package for Snapchat was currently being tested internally.
As suggested by its name, Snapchat Plus users may be able to expect some exclusive and quality features that could only be accessed by subscribers of the Snapchat Plus service. Other than that, reports also suggest that users of this incoming premium package will also be able to access the latest public features early on.
While this service is still under testing, not much has been released about the expected features and capabilities that would be included in the upcoming premium service.
However, some speculations about Snapchat Plus have already been circulating. For one, some rumors suggest that users of the Snapchat Plus will get the option to pin certain friends and keep them at the topmost part of their list. Other than that, it is also said and thought that subscribers will be able to access icons that are exclusive and display a specialized badge on their own profiles. Aside from this, a certain report also suggests that subscribers of this premium service will be able to access data about how many times a certain person viewed their story.
However, all of these are simply speculations until otherwise confirmed. Hence, they should be taken lightly and not definitively. Ultimately, Snapchat users have to wait for official confirmations and news about what features and capabilities will be included in the incoming Snapchat Plus.
In the first report of the incoming Snapchat Plus, Paluzzi shared a number of screenshots and a number of details. These shots revealed the assumed price of the incoming premium service. It is siad to start at EUR 4.59 (roughly $4.80). Subscribers will also get the option to choose the duration of their subscription plan. This could be for 6 months or for a whole year. However, the actual price of the premium service could be different upon release.
While Snap is planning to introduce this paid subscription option, it is not the first time that such models were introduced to social media platforms. In fact, another social media giant, Instagram, is also working on a paid subscription service for its homegrown creators. Given this, it may be safe to say that more subscription plans could rise in the future.
