Snapchat, the popular social media app, has made one of its paid features free for all Android users. The feature, called Snapchat+, was launched last year and offered a number of exclusive perks, such as the ability to change the app icon, see who has rewatched your Stories, and pin one friend as your #1 BFF.

Snapchat+ cost $3.99 per month, but now it is free for all Android users. The company says that it is making the feature free in order to “make Snapchat even more fun and engaging for everyone.”

The decision to make Snapchat+ free for Android users is a significant one. It is the first time that Snapchat has made a paid feature free for any platform. The move is likely to be welcomed by Android users, who have long complained about the fact that they have to pay more for apps than iOS users.

It is also a sign that Snapchat is facing increasing competition from other social media apps, such as Instagram and TikTok. These apps offer a number of features that are similar to Snapchat, and they are both free to use. By making Snapchat+ free, Snapchat is hoping to attract more users and keep them engaged with the app.

In addition to making Snapchat+ free for Android users, Snapchat has also announced a number of other new features for the app. These features include:

  • The ability to create custom Bitmoji stickers
  • The ability to add music to your Stories
  • The ability to view your Stories in chronological order

These new features are all free for all Snapchat users. They are a sign that Snapchat is continuing to innovate and add new features to the app.
