Snapchat Plus has introduced a new feature, ‘Ghost Trail.’ But to avail of this feature, you must subscribe to a premium account on Snapchat+.
The premium membership service is going to cost its subscribers $3.99 per month or $39.99 per year. With this service, the subscribers will be able to access exclusive features of the Snapchat+ platform.
Subscribers will also have the benefits of using pre-release and experimental features. Some salient features will be available to the premium users before they are released to regular platform users.
Snapchat+ has also offered a free seven-day trial to have a feel of this. Just go to your settings in the Snapchat app and click on Snapchat+ and enjoy the free service for seven days.
Additionally, this paid premium service will help in increasing the revenues of the company.
What is Snapchat+ Ghost Trail?
Ghost Trail is a new feature for the premium users of Snapchat Plus. It will help you to track the locations of your friends in the past 24 hours and will show Ghost Trails of your friends on the map.
But you will be able to see the ghost trails only if your friend is using Snapchat+ and has allowed you to view his/her location. Otherwise, it will be of no use.
How to use and see Ghost Trail?
There will be a Snap Map. The Snapchat users will have to share their location on this map.
To view the Ghost Trail of your friend, tap on your friend’s Bitmoji on the map, and it will show you his/her whereabouts in the past 24 hours.
Snapchat+ has also given the option of clearing one’s Ghost Trail. In the Snap Map settings, one can switch on or off the Ghost Mode by the toggle button.
Requirements to see Ghost Trail:
You can see the Ghost Trail of your friend only if
Your friend allows you to access his/her location on Snap Map.
Must have installed Snapchat+ version 11.85 or above.
Time will tell how many users opt-in for this feature and how much they like it. It also seems possible that most of the users may be interested in seeing their friends’ Ghost Trails but not in sharing their own to keep their privacy intact.
