In June 2022, Snapchat introduced a subscription service named Snapchat+, which provides users with exclusive features and customization options within the Snapchat mobile app.
The service has garnered a significant user base, surpassing three million subscribers since its launch.
To access Snapchat+, users need to ensure they have updated the Snapchat app to the latest version. Upon opening the app, they should click on their profile icon located in the top-left corner. If Snapchat+ is available to them, a gold-tinted banner promoting the service will be visible beneath their name. By tapping on this banner, users can choose their preferred subscription plan and initiate a 7-day free trial. The sign-up process involves using an Apple ID account, Google account, or a linked debit/credit card.
The key features of Snapchat+ include the capability to alter the app icon, the ability to identify individuals who have rewatched their stories, and a distinct pin to designate specific friends as Best Friends Forever (BFFs). Moreover, Snapchat+ offers additional attributes like custom app icons and themes, a Snapchat+ badge, the Friend Solar System, priority story replies, post-view emojis, Bitmoji backgrounds, story timer, color customization, personalized notification sounds, friend Snapscore adjustments, chat wallpapers, custom capture buttons, and the option to gift Snapchat+.
Snapchat+ is priced at $3.99/£3.99 per month, $21.99 for a six-month subscription, or $39.99 per year.
The service is available in several countries, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
To identify if someone is a Snapchat+ subscriber, users can look for the Snapchat+ badge displayed on their profiles. By visiting the person’s profile page, individuals can determine if there’s a star badge next to their display name, indicating their Snapchat+ subscription status.
