Tech review: Just like Snapchat, Instagram has rolled out face filters
Instagram has rolled out face filters, meaning you can now enhance your selfies by adding cartoon-style filters before sending them to your friends.
It looks more like what you can do on Snapchat – and it was probably the biggest advantage it had over Instagram, until now.
Announcing the update, Instagram said: ‘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.’
Promo images released today show people larking about with various filters including flower crowns and bunny ears.
Although, selfie lenses were’t invented by Snapchat, this move marks another example of Instagram copying its rival.
