Snapchat+ Paid Subscription Includes Exclusive, Experimental Content

From PC Mag: Snap Inc. is testing a paid subscription plan that gives users early access to new and exclusive features.

First spotted by app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi(Opens in a new window), and confirmed in a statement to The Verge(Opens in a new window), Snapchat Plus offers access to exclusive perks like custom icons, the ability to pin conversations, and more. It will likely end up being called Snapchat+, but for now both Snapchat+ and Snapchat Plus are being used interchangeably.

"We're doing early internal testing of Snapchat Plus, a new subscription service for Snapchatters," a company spokesperson said in a statement. "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."

Details are scant, but a screenshot shared by Paluzzi(Opens in a new window) tips membership prices for one month (€4.59/$4.83), six months (€24.99/$26.29), or 12 months (€45.99/$48.38). Costs are, of course, subject to change; it's entirely possible these numbers are just placeholders during Snap's trial.
