Overview of Snapchat+ Paid Subscribers

Recently, Snapchat introduced Snapchat+, a subscription service that costs $3.99 a month. This service offers exclusive access to features that are not available on the free version of the app, which includes giving users access to pre-release, experimental, and exclusive features.

Snap announced that its premium service Snapchat+ reached one million subscribers in just over six weeks, and the platform began to roll out new features to allow users to customize their experience. Snapchat+ is now available in the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

The updated “Priority Story Replies” feature will make Snapchat+ replies more noticeable to Snap Stars. Individuals also have the option to select the emoji they want their friends to see after viewing Snaps. In a letter to investors in July 2022, Snap said that it was excited about the long-term potential of Snapchat+ to deliver “compelling experiences for the most passionate members of our community.”

The company said that it anticipates DAUs will be around 360 million in Q3 and is excited by the momentum generated in its community.
