Snapchat+ Subscription: Features

1. Camera Color Borders

Snapchat+ allows you to set custom-colored borders around the Snapchat camera view. One can choose from a large selection of colors that will show up around your camera as you record videos or click pictures using the Snapchat camera.

2. Pin Friend as #1 BFF

Snapchat+ will provide you a way to pin a friend to the top of the chat window as your #1 BFF.  Those who will be each other’s top friends for 2 consecutive weeks will get a red heart next to their name in the chat list and be known as BFFs. So you don’t have to be BFF with a person to pin them.

3. Snapchat+ Badge

As a part of the Snapchat+ subscription, you will get an elusive star icon next to your Snapchat profile name to indicate that you are a Snapchat+ subscriber. Everyone will be able to see your badge when they visit your profile.

4. Custom Story Expiration

Snapchat stories like all other stories would expire after 24 hours until now. But Snapchat+ subscribers will be allowed to set custom timers on their stories. Timers can be set starting from 1 hour to as long as 1 week. This means you can post a story and keep it live for a whole week.

5. Custom Notification Sounds

Snapchat+ subscribers can set up custom notification sounds for different contacts. This will let you know who sent you a Snap or a chat, without having to check your phone for the name. You can also set up custom notification tones for specific contacts within Snapchat settings. There are 7 sounds to choose from.

6. Story Rewatch Count

Snapchat+ will let you see the number of times your friends have rewatched your story. This feature might be experimental and thus be made available to all Snapchat users soon.

7. Ghost Trails

Ghost Trails allows you to check the location history of friends for the past 24 hours. Ghost Trails will be visible only if your friend is sharing their location with you.

8. Snapchat+ App Icons

Snapchat+ offers 30 plus custom app icons to choose from. Snapchat also keeps adding new icons regularly for Snapchat Plus users.

9. Changes in Snapscore visible

If you are a Snapchat+ subscriber, you can tap on your friend’s snapscore and see how it has changed since the last time you saw it.

10. Snapchat Solar System

Snapchat Solar System is an exciting new feature for paid subscribers where your top 8 friends are represented by planet-like friendmojis and you are the Sun. Their position in the solar system is indicative of their closeness to you. For example, Mars is closest to Earth so the one closest to you will be represented by Mars friendmoji.

11. Story Boost

Story Boost feature can be availed by subscribing to Snapchat+. This feature boosts your story for 24 hours and it gets pushed to #1 spot so that it can be seen by more of your friends. You will get one story boost per week with your subscription.

12. Replay Snap

Normal users can replay Snap only once as long as they are on the chat screen, but with a paid subscription you get two Snap replays. If you have subscribed to Snapchat Plus, you can replay any snap two times after you have viewed it.

13. Custom Chat Wallpapers

Snapchat offers a new feature to Snapchat Plus users to set custom wallpapers for chats and group chats. Using this, one can personalize Snapchat chats and set wallpapers that one feels best to describe your friendship with the other users.

14. Dark Mode

Dark Mode was one such feature that was long overdue and now Snapchat+ will offer this to its subscribers. It is one of the best features of Snapchat Plus as now you can enable dark mode if you are a paid subscriber. Dark Mode can be enabled on Android as well as iOS.

15. Post View Emoji

Snapchat+ users will be able to set an emoji that will automatically be displayed when their friends view the Snap. You can have a sign-off of sorts after each snap you send.

If you have subscribed to Snapchat+, your replies to stories posted by Snapchat Stars will be prioritized and more visible to them.

17. New Bitmoji Backgrounds

If you want new Bitmoji backgrounds, you should subscribe to Snapchat+ for sure. It will give you access to new Bitmoji backgrounds that you can start using right away. Some of these have a Snapchat+ logo subtly inserted. Halloween-themed bitmojis have also been introduced.

Snapchat+ FAQs

1. Does Snapchat+ remove ads in the app?

No, getting a Snapchat+ subscription doesn’t offer an ad-free experience. Snapchat’s SVP of Product, Jacob Andreou told The Verge that ads will be at the core of the company’s long-term business model.

2. Is Snapchat Premium the same as Snapchat+?

No, Snapchat Premium refers to the method used by many users who make private stories on Snapchat and charge people to access them. Snapchat+ is the company’s official subscription that offers additional features.

3. Is Snapchat+ worth it?

Considering the features it is offering, Snapchat+ looks like an underwhelming value proposition that most users are likely to skip. However, this is my opinion only and those who want one or more of these features might want to purchase Snapchat+.
