It looks like Snapchat is doing some damage after its stock plunge. In May 2022, Snapchat shares plunged 30%. Now Snapchat has a Snapchat+ Subscription be first ‘passionate’ users. Is it worth the hype or is it just a gimmick, let’s find out!
Recently, Snapchat announced that it will be rolling out a plus plan that will give its users exclusive features. This announcement comes after quite the fiasco of Snapchat stock decline and the decision to delay hiring this year. Snapchat has many great features. It allows you to stay in touch with your friends through stripes. It continues to introduce new features and lenses. But is the Snapchat+ subscription really necessary?
In this article, we will look at the new subscription started by Snapchat. Is it really helpful to the users or is it just a harm reduction policy for Snapchat? Scroll down to find out!
What is Snapchat + Subscription?
On June 29, 2022, Snapchat introduced the Snapchat+ subscription. This will be a monthly premium subscription. It costs $3.99 per month. This subscription unlocks exclusive features. The users of the plus subscription can also experience the pre-release features.
Snapchat seems to be following in the footsteps of other social media platforms that have recently rolled out subscription services. In 2021, Twitter rolled out the blue subscription for ad-free access for $2.99/month. In June 2022, Telegram also rolled out a Premium subscription.
What features does Snapchat+ offer?
Snapchat introduces a new plus service. All new features of this subscription have not been disclosed. Here are some of the new features that will be introduced on Snapchat+.
- Users can pin a friend as BFF.
- Users can see who has reviewed their story.
- Users can change the icon of the app.
- Users can test all pre-release features.
As of now, Snapchat has only disclosed these features. However, what we would like to know is whether Snapchat+ would be ad-free. Snapchat earns much of its revenue from advertising, in addition to selling hardware and Pixy drones. So for the foreseeable future, we don’t think Snapchat will let the plus plan be ad-free.
In which countries is Snapchat+ available?
Snapchat is launching a new Plus plan. However, it will not be available worldwide as of now. The countries where Snapchat is launching the Snapchat+ subscription are:
- United States
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
If the subscription is successful in these countries, Snapchat may introduce it in other countries as well.
It’s time to wrap up! Snapchat comes with a paid subscription. While we don’t know much about the new features, we will be updating all features soon. Until then, let us know if you’re excited about this subscription in the comments below. Do you also buy the monthly subscription?
