Snapchat has launched a subscription service aimed at bringing new features to users on the platform. Simply called Snapchat+, the subscription service is being billed as “a collection of exclusive, experimental and pre-release features.”
Users can now click on the Snapchat+ icon on their profile to sign up for $4 USD per month. According to the company, the subscription will enable it to unveil new features to the most “passionate members” of its community. Among the new features is the ability to pin a friend to the top of a user’s chat history and to view who re-watched a Story post.
The subscription is currently available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The company plans to add additional countries later on.
