Snapchat is internally testing a paid subscription called Snapchat Plus, which appears to give users early access to features as well as other abilities. As reported earlier, the one-month subscription for Snapchat+ is expected to cost EUR 4.59 (roughly Rs. 370), while the users can buy six-months plan at EUR 24.99 (roughly Rs. 2,000). The one-year subscription plan is said to come with a price tag of EUR 45.99 (roughly Rs. 3,700).
Snapchat is far from the only social network or messaging platform operating at a paid tier. Telegram had already confirmed that it’s also working on a premium subscription, due later this month. Meanwhile, Twitter launched its Blue service late last year.
In addition, the company could offer a one-week free trial for users to encourage paid subscription. The payment will reportedly be linked to the user’s Play store account, and the service will be auto-renewed after a selected interval until the user cancels it. Snapchat+ is also said to offer users custom Snapchat icons and a special badge. Users are said to be allowed to pin a conversation with a friend.
