Now, we can see that several social media applications are upgrading, and many are working to provide premium benefits to the users. Recently, Telegram introduced a premium version and offered access to some exclusive features. Likewise, Snapchat has also introduced the Plus subscription that lets people access new features early and get some exclusive benefits.
Like other premium services, the Snapchat Plus has also come up with some exclusive features for its users. It is the third social media platform to add a subscription service for its users. However, we will not be getting rid of the ads that pop up across the application, and it would be a great letdown. For a better user experience, make sure to update the Snapchat app regularly.
Exclusive Features of Snapchat Plus
1. Pin your BFF Friends as #1
Snapchat Plus has the option to pin any of your closest ones to the top of the chat window. However, it does not require pinning anyone directly. If the person stays on top for two consecutive weeks, they will get a red heart next to their name. So, they would be marking them as BFF by default in the normal mode.
2. Snapchat Plus Badge
Snapchat Plus has also come up with a badge near the profile name to denote the users as a Snapchat Plus Subscriber. So anyone who visits your profile will get to know that you are using a premium account.
3. Track on the Story Re-watch Count
With this feature, you will be able to check the number of times your friend has viewed your story. It looks like a trail and can be available to all users of Snapchat at any time sooner.
4. Check on the Ghost Trails
This is a unique feature that lets us check on the location history of our fellow users or friends for the past 24 hours. However, it will work only if they wish to share their location with you.
5. Access to Some Exclusive Snapchat Icons
The Snapchat Plus subscription has a custom icon. Now, they have added over 30 new icons to choose from. The company will be adding more in the near future.
