Snapchat has recently experienced a meteoric rise in popularity, as evidenced by the fact that it now has more than 210 million users who are actively using the app. The vast majority of them, almost 73 percent, are young adults in the age range of 18 to 24 years old.

The makers of Snapchat are currently upping the ante a little bit and starting to try out the new subscription service, which will ultimately be referred to as Snapchat+. According to the information provided by Yahoo Finance, users will have access to services that will be unique to the subscription option, which costs 4.59 euros per month.

The option to subscribe straight to Snapchat+ for an entire year will also be accessible, and users will be required to pay a fee of 45.99 euros in order to take advantage of this particular bargain. Up until now, Snapchat has not provided its users with a feature analogous to this, which is to say, a membership service.

Snap spokesperson Liz Markman also talked about the upcoming Snapchat Plus:

We’re doing early internal testing of Snapchat Plus, a new subscription service for Snapchatters. We’re excited about the potential to share exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features with our subscribers, and learn more about how we can best serve our community.

Snapchat Plus enables you to designate a certain user as your best buddy. The future subscription service will provide its users with a great deal of content that is both useful and entertaining. They will be able to pin someone as their number one best buddy, earn a unique badge, gain access to exclusive icons, view the location of a friend over the course of the last twenty-four hours, and a number of other features.

Users of Snapchat will merely need to practice a little more patience for the time being, as there is currently no information regarding the precise launch date of the new subscription service Snapchat Plus.
