The subscription feature, which is being tested internally, was first revealed on Twitter by a trusted leaker named Alessandro Paluzzi.

A spokesman for Snap, the company that owns the social media app, confirmed the plans on Thursday.

Snapchat+ would cost $4.59 for a one-month subscription, or $45.99 for a year, according to screenshots shared by Paluzzi.

The tech guru, who regularly reveals upcoming features of apps, is a mobile developer and reserve engineer, according to his Twitter bio.

Paluzzi said subscribers would get access to “exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features.”

Examples include the ability to pin conversations, access to custom icons, and more.

It would be the first subscription product for Snapchat, allowing users to post content stories, play games, and scroll through a TikTok-like feature called Spotlight.

Should the plans come to fruition, it would be one of the first social media apps to add subscription tiers.

In June 2021, Twitter launched Twitter Blue, a monthly subscription that offers exclusive access to premium features.

It is available in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The move comes as social media giants scramble to find new ways to make money amid intensifying competition and regulatory scrutiny.

Earlier this week, it emerged that Facebook plans to revive a popular feature on its app that it trashed years ago — sort of.

According to a report, Meta, the company that owns the platform, wants to bring Messenger back into Facebook’s main app.

The couple split in 2014, with Messenger becoming its own app that users had to install separately on their devices.

The plot to put them back together was revealed in a memo from a Facebook executive released by The edge On Wednesday.

The memo, from Tom Alison, who runs the Facebook app at Meta, urged employees to make the app more like TikTok.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has publicly attributed the recent stagnation of his creation to the meteoric rise of the Chinese video platform.
