About Snapchat Premium
Snapchat Premium has announced the premium subscription-based service known as Snapchat Plus. Exclusive experimental and prerelease features like exclusive badges, access to customized icons, and you can even mark your chat with your best friend, story rewatch count, and much more. All these features are counted as exclusive features.
Snapchat Plus is free for the first 7 days, with a trial to use and experience the royal features. Now, you can easily customize your Snapchat experience with it. Recently, more than one million Snapchat users have shifted towards Snapchat+.
However, it is a great gift to the daily users who love Snapchat and maintain streaks daily. But it’s a drawback for creative digital creators because all the content is already available on Snapchat.
So, let’s talk about it in detail, and you will be glad to know about the more features available in Snapchat+.
The Exceptional Features of Snapchat Premium
Here are the top features mentioned below that Snapchat Plus users want to experience.
Custom Story Expiration
In the Snapchat premium account, the story expires after 24 hours. But in Snapchat+, users can now set timers on their stories, which will be shared on their profile for a certain time. The timer is set from an hour to as long as one week. Users can now share a story on their profile for a week or an hour.
Custom Notification Sounds
Snapchat+ can set custom notification sounds for distinctive contacts. It helps you know who has sent you the Snap or a chat and saves you time without checking your cell phone. Now set the custom notifications sound for a chat and snap so you’ll be notified either you receive Snap or a call. A total of 7 sounds are available in Snapchat Premium.
Camera Color Borders
Another feature of Snapchat+ is now you can personalize the colored borders around the camera. There is a distinctive large selection of colors you can choose from that will show around your camera whenever you are recording videos or clicking pictures with a Snapchat camera.
Pin a Friend as the #1 BFF
Now, you can easily pin a conversation with your friend as your BFF. You don’t have to act as a BFF to whom you mark it. It’s been observed that the people who continue to be on top for two consecutive weeks will automatically get a red heart with the name and be called super BFFs.
Make a Badge Visible in your Profile
In Snapchat+, you will get a star icon with the Snapchat profile name, indicating that you are a Snapchat premium user. This badge will be seen by those who visit your profile.
Trace the Location of your Friend
Through Ghost Trails on Snap Maps, you can easily trace your friend’s location for the past 24 hours. However, Ghost Trails will be only shown to those with whom you have shared the location.
Custom App Icons/Themes
Custom icons are also added to the Snapchat+ subscription. As Alessandro Paluzzi mentioned, you can choose from more than 30 custom icons. It is predicted that more icons will be added for Snapchat users.
Displayed to the Snapchat Stars
If you are a Snapchat+ subscriber, your story replies to the Snapchat stars will be on top and more prominent to them.
Story Rewatch Count
Snapchat Plus will let its users check out that one or more friends have rewatched their stories, private stories, and shared stories. Users can do it by toggling on the rewatch indicator feature in the settings option. However, the feature will not indicate the total number of times it has been rewatched, so it does not specify which of your friends rewatched your story.
Another exclusive feature of Snapchat Premium is the story boost. It is available for users who are paid subscribers of Snapchat+. The story boost feature will let the user boost their story for a day (24 hours). The story will be located in the number 1 spot so it can be seen by more of your Snapchat friends. At the same time, Snapchat + subscribers will get 1 story boost per week.
Snapchat Solar System
Snapchat+ solar system feature lets the users know where planet-like friend emojis represent their top eight friends, and you are the Sun. Your friend’s location in the solar system suggests their closeness to you.
Remove My AI
Snapchat released Chatbot MY AI powered by ChatGPT. However, many users of Snapchat don’t like the new feature My AI in Snapchat because of the confusion emerging over how the application uses location. And even MY AI uploaded its own confusing photos on a story. If you are one of these users, then it is great news for you. Snapchat Plus users can remove My AI from their chats.
Post Snap View Emoji
Snapchat premium subscribers can set an emoji that will automatically be shown after their friends see Snap. It means users leave a mark after every Snap they send.
Priority Story Replies
Another exclusive feature of Snapchat Plus is the priority story replies. When users reply to stories posted by Snapchat stars, it can be arranged at the top and be more noticeable to them.
The Snapchat premium subscription also allows its users to switch on the dark mode of their Snapchat app on their Android and iOS devices.
Exclusive Bitmoji Backgrounds
Snapchat+ gives the new bitmoji features that you’ll love. If you have used all the Bitmoji backgrounds in Snapchat, subscribe to Snapchat+. Snapchat has recently added new Halloween-themed Bitmoji backgrounds for Snapchat Plus users.
Snapchat for Web
It’s a misconception that anyone can use this feature, but it’s not like that. Only people living in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia can use Snapchat on the web.
You can chat with your friends, react to their messages, and continue calling on the web where you left from on your phone. However, Snapchat lenses have not been introduced on the web yet.
