Big Picture: Snap isn’t the only social media platform to offer paid tiers. This month, Telegram plans to release a paid subscription called Telegram Premium. Last year, Twitter launched a paid monthly subscription called Twitter Blue that allows users to customize their experience and access premium features.
Snap is developing a paid subscription service that will reportedly give members early access to features and other amenities.
This was announced by Snap spokeswoman Liz Markman. edge that Snapchat Plus is in the early stages of internal testing, adding that they are excited to share exclusive, experimental and preview features with subscribers and learn how they can best serve their community.
So… subscribing to #snapchat+ you can:
1️⃣ Tag a friend as Best BFF #1
2️⃣ Get access to exclusive Snapchat badges
3️⃣ Show profile badge
4️⃣ See your orbit with BFF
5️⃣ View your friend’s location in the last 24 hours
6️⃣ See how many friends have reviewed your story

A tweet from leader Alessandro Paluzzi highlights additional Snapchat Plus features, including the ability to pin a friend as a BFF, access to exclusive Snapchat badges, the ability to display a badge on your profile, and the ability to see your friends’ whereabouts through the past 24 hours (provided that they agree to share their location with you), among other things.
Paluzzi also suggested that the price could be 4.59 eruo per month or 45.99 euros per year, or around $4.81 and $48.21 respectively.
The privacy changes introduced in iOS 14.5 dealt a blow to free apps that made money from targeted ads and partly explain why we’re seeing a shift in revenue models in favor of subscriptions.
