In a support document, there is an elaborate description of this. The document says that a blue checkmark could mean either that the account has an active subscription to the new service or that it was previously verified.
The new eligibility criteria includes an account being complete, with a display name, profile photo and confirmed phone number, older than 90 days, with no recent changes to profile photo, display name, or usernames. The account must have no signs of being deceptive or engaging in platform manipulation.
What will happen to the checkmarks? It is possible to remove the checkmark of an account at any time. All legacy checkmarks will be removed in a few months.
