(Pocket-lint) – Last June, Snapchat launched its paid subscription service Snapchat+ to give its users exclusive features and experimental add-ons.
For a monthly fee of $3.99, Snapchat users were promised early access to a number of features before they were released to the general public. The list of extra features was short back then, but that’s about to change.
Today Snapchat revealed several exclusive new features available to Snapchat+ subscribers. The company promised that these were the first in a long series and that subscribers would benefit from “frequent updates”.
It’s Home Safety Week on Pocket-lint
It’s Home Safety Week all week on Pocket-lint. Here is what awaits you.
The first of these features is:
- Priority story replies – when you post a reply to a story, it will be more easily seen by Snap Stars.
- Display Emoji – you will now be able to choose an emoji you want your friends to see once they view your Snap. So you can have a personalized way to end your Snaps.
- New Bitmoji backgrounds – Snapchat+ users have access to special Bitmoji backgrounds that stand out.
- New app icons – You will be able to change your app icon and switch to a different design on your home screen.
These features are available alongside Snapchat for web, which launched a few weeks ago:
Snapchat for the web allows Snapchat+ subscribers to message or call friends while on a desktop computer. This makes it even easier to stay in touch. Apparently, AR lenses will also be available on the web in the future. So there’s a lot more to expect from Snapchat+.
Snapchat+ is now available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, India, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Finland and Austria.
