Snapchat adds Replays that let you pay to relive your old messages: Latest update also includes selfie art and trophies

  • Snapchat has launched 'Replays' – its first in-app purchase 
  • It gives users three chances to relive old messages again for $0.99 
  • Feature is only available for US users but is expected to roll out further
  • Firm also rolled out a 'Lenses' selfie art tool and 'Trophies' for avid users.
  • Snapchat is known for self-destructing messages and photos, but there's a now way to enjoy those hilarious and nostalgic messages again. 

  • The firm has launched 'Replays' - its first in-app purchase that gives users three chances to relive messages again for $0.99 (65p).
    Snapchat has also rolled out a feature called 'Lenses,' to add art to selfies, and 'Trophies' to reward its top users.
    A blog post from the company said: 'Today, US Snapchatters can purchase extra Replays, starting at 3 for $0.99. 
    'You can use a Replay on any Snap you receive, but you can only Replay any Snap once. They're a little pricey - but time is money! ;)'
    Snapchat is also offering 10 Replays for $2.99 and 20 Replays for $4.99. 
    However, if they have already used their free daily Replay on a Snap, they cannot purchase an additional Replay for that particular Snap.
    For now, purchasing additional Replays is only available to countries whose app stores operate in US dollars and there is currently no word as to when the feature will come to the UK. 
    Replay purchases are made directly through the App Store or Google Play Store.  
    The ability to replay messages has previously been limited to one free replay per user per day and was introduced two years ago.
