Social sharing platform Snapchat said it has launched new features for Snapchat+, its premium subscription that offers subscribers access to early, exclusive, and experimental features.

In addition to the new features, Snapchat also announced that in December, just in time for the holiday season, Snapchatters will be able to gift their friends a subscription (£3.99/month) all without leaving the app.

The social platform said that more than one million Snapchatters have opted in for Snapchat plus–and with this latest drop, Subscribers now have access to more than twelve exclusive features.

The four new ways for subscribers to customise their Snapchat experience include:

  • The new Custom Story Expiration. This set Snaps on subscribers’ stories to expire after one hour or up to one week. With this new feature, members can make sure their friends see their special Snaps worth sharing longer, or encourages them to keep coming back to view their most fun and fleeting moments.
  • Custom Notification Sounds will let subscribers set different tones for different friends so they can tell who Snapped them without looking at their phone.
  • Custom Camera Color Borders lets subscribers cast their favourite hue on screen as they capture content.
  • Plus, Snapchat’s three new exclusive, seasonal, and spooky Bitmoji Backgrounds lets Snapchat+ subscribers decorate their Snapchat profile for Halloween.

Snapchat+ was launched in June this year and the company said in August that it had amassed more than one million subscribers.
