Then let's take a look at all the Snapchat Plus features and find out if it’s worth shelling those extra bucks.

The company is constantly getting new features on the service, so it might be worth it just to try some interesting new ones.

Is it worth subscribing to Snapchat+?

Clearly, if you are a devoted user of the service, then the monthly subscription is definitely a good investment. If you are a casual user, then perhaps the service might not really be for you. There are no features on there that we would define as "necessary". But there is one interesting thing to consider.

There is a free 7 day trial available, so it might be a good idea to try the service for free first and then decide what kind of subscription you might want. The service offers different subscriptions from one month, up to a year. It is definitely quick and simple to sign up for the service and you can also try it for free, so you can check if it suits your Snapchat needs.
