Snapchat has released an update that adds a few new features. The first is a selfie-altering mode called “Lenses” and the other is a new feature that will give you extra replays if you’re willing to pay for the privilege. Snapchat introduced Reply in Additional Services about two years ago to allow users to replay a snap one more time, since that time it has provided one Replay per Snapchatter per day for free, but now it is ready to make people pay for them.
So if you want to have the ability to replay your snaps one more time before they disappear for good, you can pay for the privilege. This will be a new revenue stream for the company.
For just $0.99 users get 3 extra Replays and they can use them to replay three individual snaps, each snap can only be replayed once. As for Lenses, it is a “whole new way to express yourself” on the messaging service. When you are using the camera to take a selfie you can press and hold on your face to activate Lenses. Then select any one of the many selfie-altering Lenses before taking your snap. What do you think? Are you interested in paying for it?
