First it was “stories”, now filters – there’s very little about Snapchat that isn’t a part of Instagram now.
“From math equations swirling around your head to furry koala ears that move and twitch, you can transform into a variety of characters that make you smile or laugh,” Instagram says in its latest blog post.
You’ll need to upgrade to the latest update, then to get snap-er-filtering:
- tap in the top left of the screen or swipe right from anywhere in your feed
- tap then select a filter at the bottom of the screen
- tap to take a photo or tap and hold to take a video
When using the front or back-facing camera, the filter you choose will automatically appear on the closest person’s face. Face filters also work while using Boomerang, as well as the new Hands-Free and Rewind camera formats – and some filters work with two faces at once.
BRB, closing my Snapchat forever.
