A Snap spokesman confirmed on Thursday that Snap Inc, the parent firm of picture messaging app Snapchat, is developing a new subscription service dubbed Snapchat Plus that would allow customers access to premium and pre-release features.
The subscription option, which Snap claims are being evaluated internally, was initially discovered on Twitter by a person called Alessandro Paluzzi, who describes himself as a mobile programmer and reserve engineer.
According to screenshots Paluzzi provided on Twitter, Snapchat+ would cost 4.59 euros for just a one-month membership and 45.99 euros for a year.
Snapchat Plus Will Allow You To See How Many People Rewatched Your Stories
It would be Snapchat’s first subscription service, allowing users to submit content stories, play games, and scroll through a TikTok-style feature called Spotlight. To have a regular source of revenue, an increasing number of apps are switching to subscriptions. This time, it appears like Snapchat will become the next platform to launch a paid membership service named “Snapchat Plus,” which would provide users with special benefits.
Alessandro Paluzzi, a developer, and researcher was the first to discover information regarding Snapchat Plus. A Snap spokeswoman told The Verge that the business has been testing a new subscription package that would provide customers access to exclusive Snapchat features as well as early access to upcoming public features. Members will be able to put friends at the top of their list, receive access to unique symbols, display a special badge on their profile, and know how many people have rewatched their Stories, according to Paluzzi’s results.
According to Paluzzi‘s screenshots, Snapchat Plus will cost €4.59 a month (roughly $4.84), with a discount for those who sign up for a semi-annual or annual subscription. Prices and incentives are subject to change until the official launch of Snapchat Plus, as the business has yet to confirm this information.
