Instagram Copies Snapchat Once Again With Face Filters

Courtesy Of Instagram

But they've been missing one feature that makes Snapchat such a joy to use: the filters that transform your face.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, tweeted today that it will allow users to add "filters" to their posts - a feature which has helped differentiate Snapchat from its rivals, despite their attempts to encroach on its territory. On Instagram, the feature is called face filters.

To use the new face filters on Instagram, swipe into the camera and look for a new face icon in the bottom right-hand corner.

Forget touch screen now squeeze your phone to click a selfie!
This is the highest ever score by a smartphone camera and it surpasses last year's 89 achieved by the Google Pixel. After several leaks and a few teasers , HTC is finally launching its new 2017 flagship smartphone - the HTC U 11.

The update will also allow users to display video in reverse, or "rewind" their videos and will feature an eraser app. If you've ever used Snapchat before, you're more than likely familiar with its Lenses, which are essentially the same thing. Boomerang works in a similar way, but instead loops the short burst of recording back and forth. Plus, you can add hashtags "stickers" to your stories.

Last August, it added "stories", where shared-posts disappear after 24 hours.

Finally, the color pen set provided in the app is being augmented with a new "Eraser Brush" that'll cover the whole screen with the color you've picked and then you can erase parts of the photograph you want to reveal. Last month, Instagram said Stories had more than 200 million daily active users - or more than the number of daily users for Snapchat in total. Well what if you could take your photographs (or "selfies", amirite kids?!), and add cool, colourful filters to them?

But they will end the campaign without a trophy as they scrap to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish. I will try with the club, with the players, with the staff, with the chairman, with the sporting director, to do it.

Latest update on May 16, 2017 at 11:11 AM by PaulRubens. It's not just Instagram Stories, it's the Instagram feed.

These new features should offer creative, inspiring new ways for Instagram storytellers to share their adventures. This option is located as a separate button below the app's camera shutter button, next to Boomerang and Hands-Free mode. Elsewhere, the selfie sticker feature was created to utilise the front-facing camera.
