Snapchat Is Testing A Paid Plus Tier, Here's What It Gets You
Snapchat is a tremendously popular social network that allows users to send messages to others and use all sorts of different filters to create unique, and often humorous, photos. Now Snap, its parent company, is testing out a new paid tier for its customers that will give them added features and benefits. Snapchat Plus will allow people to pin a friend as a #1 BFF, get access to exclusive Snapchat icons, display a special badge on their profiles, and more.
In a statement to The Verge, Snap spokesperson Liz Markman stated, "We're doing early internal testing of Snapchat Plus, a new subscription service for Snapchatters. We're excited about the potential to share exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features with our subscribers, and learn more about how we can best serve our community."
Paluzzi also tweeted what the new paid subscription will cost. According to the tweet, Snapchat Plus will cost about 4.59 Euros a month and 45.99 Euros a year (about $4.85 and $48.50 in US currency, respectively). As with anything of this nature, those prices can change before it is actually released
