(Pocket-lint) – Snap is reportedly testing a paid subscription called Snapchat Plus.
According to The Verge, Snapchat Plus will give you early access to certain features. Plus, Twitter app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi recently noticed that Snap was testing other features for Snapchat Plus, including the ability to pin one of your friends as your “#1 BFF.”
Other features would be available:
- Access exclusive Snapchat icons
- Display a badge in your profile
- See your orbit with BFF
- See your friend’s location in the last 24 hours
- See how many friends have reviewed your story.
Paluzzi showed that the price of Snapchat Plus is currently listed as 4.59 euros per month and 45.99 euros per year (about $4.84).

Snapchat is a mobile application for Android and iOS devices. In common parlance, the application is often referred to as Snap by its users. At the same time, the developer of Snapchat is a public company also called Snap, which is confusing. The company itself claims to be a camera company. (As such, it creates other products, including hardware, like the Snapchat Spectacles). Whatever name you give it, Snap is led by co-founder Evan Spiegel.
One of the core concepts of the mobile app is that any photo, video or message – aka snap – that you send by default is only made available to the recipient for a short period of time before becoming inaccessible. This temporary or ephemeral nature of the app was originally designed to encourage a more natural flow of interaction.
