Let’s not start with the basic Snapchat introduction, we all know what that app is and what it is used for. But there’s a certain attribute about the app that some of you might be unaware of. We are also well aware of the cool features of Snapchat, sending snaps, weird yet cool filters, and whatnot. But the question that must have been pondered over one’s mind is ‘what is premium Snapchat?’ or  ‘how does snap premium work?’. 

Well, for starters, let’s just say that it’s a premium version of the same Snapchat app. These days premium doesn’t mean extra features, instead, it means explicit content. Basically premium has become a concealed term for denoting someone’s account that is selling private content, that is limited to a few individuals, basically, the ones who have paid for it. 

The same goes for Snapchat Premium or Snapchat Plus. You must have heard of OnlyFans, it is just like that only. Not just sharing private snaps but private chatting is also a part of Snapchat plus. The exemplary part of Snapchat+ is that once you know the monetization process, then it can turn out to be a great source of money-making. 


Enough with the introduction now, let’s move ahead and understand how to get started with Snapchat plus. 

How to Start a Premium Snapchat Account?

There’s no particular Snapchat premium app for which you have to buy a subscription for Snapchat. To get started with Snapchat premium, all you need is a smartphone and the Snapchat app, which is free to download. You are also supposed to be 18+ of age with a pretty open-minded personality and a bit of confidence would be a cherry on top. 

Snapchat plus is nothing but the easiest way to switch your fans into paid followers and make good money from it. Firstly, you have to be a little famous on the app, you can start by getting verified on it, then only you can ask your fans to be your paid followers. If you aren’t famous, no one would be interested. I guess that satisfied your curiosity about how Snap premium works. 

Although, do remember that some of your fans/followers may not like that you ask them for money in exchange for some explicit content. In fact, there have been instances where people have called Snapchat Premium a waste of time and worthless.

Let’s now have a look at the top features that come with Snapchat+. 

Top Features of Snapchat Premium 

Before moving ahead, it is to be kept in mind that there is no Snapchat Plus free trial, hence, you will have to buy the premium to avail all the features of Snapchat plus. Here’s a list of the top Snapchat plus features:

Custom Story

Up until now, every story we posted on our accounts, be it Instagram stories, Facebook, or Whatsapp, disappears after 24 hours. But with Snapchat plus, that’s now the case. Users can set custom timers on their stories. The timer can last from 1 hour to a whole week. Hence, with Snapchat+, your stories can last up to any desired amount of time you want to till a week. 

Customized Notification Sounds

With Snapchat plus, users can set custom notification sounds for each of their followers, this will let them know who sent them a snap/chat without reaching out to their phone. You can easily set up custom notification tones for your contacts from Snapchat settings. 

Camera Borders

Another added feature to Snapchat premium is the various camera color borders around the Snapchat camera view. A large collection of colors will show up around your camera when you record a video, you can pick one from any of those. 

Snapchat+ Badge

Once you have started with a Snapchat Plus subscription, you will also get a Snapchat Plus badge, which is a unique star icon next to your profile name. The icon will indicate that you are a Snapchat premium user. 

Story Rewatch Counts

The name says it all. This Snapchat+ feature will also let you know the number of times someone rewatches your story. The feature is quite experimental at the moment and might be available for other users as well in the near future. 

Ghost Trails

With Ghost trails on Snap Map it is possible for users to check the location history of other users from the past 24 hours. However, it should be remembered that Ghost trail would only work when the other person has enabled their location service or shared it with you. 

Priority Story Replies 

If you are a premium user on Snapchat, then your replies to the snap stars will be more visible to them than any other snap user. This means, your replies on Snapchat will be prioritized. 

New Bitmoji Backgrounds

Bitmoji’s backgrounds are for your Bitmoji, the ones that you set up manually. With Snapchat plus, you will have more options to set those backgrounds. This would be another source of letting other Snapchatters know that you are a premium user. 

Snapchat Web

With Snapchat plus, you will also be able to log in to your Snapchat account through your web. This means, just like Whatsapp web and Instagram, you can also log in to your Snapchat account on the web and send messages to your friends directly from your laptop or PC.
