Initially, Snapchat launched its paid subscription service in 10 countries; now, India is the latest addition. Also, a Snapchat+ subscription in India is available for just ₹49, which is relatively cheap compared to Snapchat+ in the US, as it costs $3.99 per month (approx ₹317.81).
Keeping the pricing in mind, it looks like Snapchat wants to capitalize on its huge user base in India to grow its revenue. Recently, Snapchat suffered a nearly $10 billion loss, and its shares hit a new 52-week low. Also, according to a report, Snapchat is in the early stage of planning layoffs.
