Instagram Introduces Snapchat-like “Face Filters” | Here’s how it Works

Social media giant Instagram has introduced “face filters” in its camera.

In an announcement on Tuesday, Instagram said it is “an easy way to turn an ordinary selfie into something fun and entertaining.”

The filters also work with Boomerang, so you can easily add an unexpected twist to what you share.

When you’re done recording, you can send it to your best friends through Instagram Direct or add it to your story.

Also, Instagram rolled out more creative tools in the camera.

You can make videos that play in reverse with “Rewind,” a new camera format next to “Boomerang” and “Hands-Free.”

This new feature is similar to Snapchat’s filters and this is the second time Instagram is releasing a feature similar to Snapchat.

Last year, Instagram introduced “Stories,” a Snapchat-like feature which lets you share photos and videos which will appear together in a slideshow format that will last for only 24 hours.

Facebook which owns Instagram, had tried to buy Snapchat for $3 billion in 2013 after it bought Instagram, but Snapchat’s CEO, Evan Spiegel rejected the mouth-watering sum.

    Well I kinda knew this was gonna happen eventually. Snapchat better come up with something different cause IG might collect their geotags next
    OAN: Am I the only one that has noticed the “contour filter” is missing on snap chat?

    Zuckerberg should fire his creative team. They are very boring and cliche. Leave Evan Spiegel to his filters. Give us something original.

      my dear welcome to the world of business, it is called adding value to your customers, why do you think Glo, MTN and co share similar features and alot of Banks have similar packages, it is a way of telling their customers what is outside is inside too so please stay with us, even in marriages my dear you try to add that extra so somebody will not look outside too much, for example i have started using cream too to yellow so those over ripe paw paw will not come and reap where they did not sow

    lol snapchat should also copy Instagram like letting people see other snaps without adding them as a friend.
