If you use Snapchat, then you will have noticed the new version, known as Snapchat Premium, which has been introduced to users.

Snapchat Premium, which is also known as Snapchat+ or Snapchat Plus is a new version that Snapchat has introduced for users of a certain category.

This version is much better than the regular version of Snapchat. In this article, you will learn what Snapchat Premium is and the features of Snapchat Premium.

What Is Snapchat Premium

Snapchat+ is a premium version of Snapchat that gives its users access to a wide range of features that are not accessible on the regular version.

Snapchat+ is a paid subscription service that offers exclusivity to its patronizers and it offers a lot of perks, it does not remove ads from the platform.

All paid subscribers are identified by a black star badge that is attached to their username and included in their profile.

The perks Snapchat+ users enjoy include “exclusive, experimental, pre-release features”.

This means that before some features will be available to users of regular Snapchat, Snapchat+ subscribers will already have experienced them. Also, some features will be just for Snapchat+ subscribers.

Here are the features of Snapchat Premium

Pin best friend

Firstly, Snapchat+ allows users to pin any of their friends as their number one Best Friend.

This s permanent until you decide to change it and it puts the pinned friend at the top of their chat list.

A special emoji is also attached to their chat but you can only pin one #1BFF at a time.

Who Rewatched Your Story

Secondly, unlike regular Snapchat which tells you who took a screenshot or screen recording of a video, and shows the list of users who viewed your story, Snapchat+ does all this and in addition shows you who rewatched your story.

When looking through the list of your story viewers, you will see a pair of eyes emoji next to all the users who rewatched your story.

Change Snapchat Icon

Also, Snapchat+ gives its users the option of changing the Snapchat icon on their mobile devices.

The default icon is a white ghost on a yellow background, but with Snapchat Premium, you have a wide variety of options with over thirty different icon colors and designs to pick from.

Change Background Chat Screen

Again, as a paid subscriber, you can choose to change the background of your chat screen.

By default, it is plain white but as a user of Snapchat Premium, you can customize it to whatever image you want even with emojis.

Custom Timer on Story

Lastly, premium member has the choice of using the custom timer feature on their stories.

Stories for regular users are automatically deleted after twenty-four hours but premium members can set for their stories to last from one hour to as long as a week.
