Instagram adds face filters to Stories

Posted May 17, 2017

Instagram has just released a bunch of new features, including the new Instagram face filters!

The company stated in a blogpost that "to see our initial set of eight face filters, simply open the camera and tap the new face icon in the bottom right corner". You can also use the new eraser tool to edit any drawings that you add with your new face-filter stories.

Snapchat, watch your back because Zuckerberg is coming for you. Completed images can be sent through Instagram Direct or added to an Instagram Story. You can select and customise the hashtag before adding it to your story. If a viewer taps the sticker, they'll be taken to the hashtag's page in Instagram's Explore tab. There's also a new hashtag sticker that can be customized, because despite the best efforts of every brand on the planet, hashtags remain cool. In that time, the the app has switched to an algorithmic feed and rolled out Instagram Stories, which now eclipses Snapchat with more than 200 million daily active users (DAUs) in less than a year.

Face Filters cannot only be applied to still images, but also videos and Boomerang clips. "Now, you have more fun and easy ways to express yourself and connect with the people you care about most".

The updates are available as part of Instagram version 10.21 for iOS and Android. Taking a Rewind video is the same as taking a regular video. Snapchat's typically make your face dewy and even a little thinner-all to make you look like a more appealing human being.
