Snapchat is now trying to win over users with a $5 per month subscription.
The company announced Wednesday that users will be able to sign up for a free trial for its app this week, and that the company will be releasing more ad-supported versions of the app in the coming weeks.
The subscription fee is the first step in Snapchat’s strategy to turn users from paid-for ad-hoc accounts to paid subscribers.
Snapchat is already offering a subscription service for $15 per month, which the company says is a better deal than Snapchat’s paid model, but it is a little more expensive than other apps like Spotify or Pandora.
Snapchat said that the subscription fee will be free to current users who don’t have a premium account, and will be available until September 7.
Snapchat has also said that it will start offering a paid subscription option for its premium app in September.
Snapchat’s ad-free version is expected to be available starting in September, and the company plans to launch more paid versions for users who want more customization.
Snapchat plans to release paid version of its premium product in the near future, and its ad-funded version in September or October, according to the company.
The $5 fee will only apply to users who sign up at the company’s official Snapchat site, and it does not include Snap’s paid subscription or other perks, like the ability to share videos and photos with other Snapchatters.
Snapchat started offering ad-paid versions of its app in July, but many users have been complaining about the ad-blocking features, and other services, like Twitter, have offered similar offers.
The app launched in the US in April, but has since been rolled out to more countries and languages.
The price of the paid version is about the same as what you’d pay for a paid membership of Spotify, according the company, which is a free option for the company to offer to users without an ad-blocker.
The ad-sponsored version of Snapchat’s app is only available for a limited time, and users can’t add the app to their Snapchat accounts unless they sign up through the company directly.
Snapchat will also be releasing ad-driven versions of other apps this month.
Snapchat says that it plans to begin releasing ads-free versions of WhatsApp, Snapchat Stories, and Snapchat Moments on September 12.
