Twitter’s App Store web page lists ‘Blue’ subscription, prices $3.49 in Canada

Details about Twitter’s rumoured ‘Blue’ subscription service leaked earlier this month, and now the social media community has successfully confirmed that the subscription is coming.

MacRumors noticed a change on Twitter’s App Store web page on iPhone that listed ‘Twitter Blue’ beneath the in-app purchases part. For Canadians, the service will price $3.49 (the U.S. value is listed at $2.99, or about $3.61 CAD). At the time of writing, Twitter Blue didn’t seem like obtainable within the app. For Android customers, the Play Store notes that Twitter accommodates in-app purchases however doesn’t elaborate on what these purchases are.

Jane Manchun Wong, who usually uncovers new options in social media apps earlier than launch, leaked the main points of Twitter Blue in May. Now, Wong says she’s the primary paying Twitter Blue buyer “for testing.” According to a tweet from Wong, Twitter Blue affords color themes, customized app icons and a reader mode that’s “coming soon.”

As an apart, particulars about Twitter providing new app icons leaked final yr. It’s potential that these plans received absorbed into the Twitter Blue subscription as an alternative of broadly rolling out at no cost. Offering completely different app icons is fairly frequent on iOS (and works fairly nicely), however in my expertise, the apps that allow you to change the icon on Android use a workaround that requires you to position an app shortcut on your private home display screen and doesn’t truly change the app icon.

Wong additionally shared a number of screenshots of Twitter Blue options in her tweet. Although Wong didn’t explicitly point out the rumoured ‘Undo Tweet’ characteristic, it does seem within the screenshots. Many outstanding Twitter customers have known as for a tweet enhancing characteristic to repair typos and different points, but it surely appears we’ll need to accept an undo button as an alternative. It’s higher than nothing, however I feel an edit choice would have higher pushed individuals to subscribe.

Wong additionally responded to a Twitter consumer who requested if Blue eliminated advertisements, noting that she hadn’t come throughout any “signs of ads reduction.” However, that would change sooner or later.

So, briefly, Twitter Blue exists however isn’t typically obtainable but. For $3.49, Canadians will get the power to undo tweets, change the color theme of Twitter, set customized app icons and, in fact, the promise of future options like a reader mode. As with something, I’d advise towards shopping for one thing for the promise of a future replace (that by no means goes nicely), but when $3.49 looks as if a great quantity to pay for themes, icons, and an undo button, Twitter Blue could also be for you.
