Back in 2016, Instagram has received Stories feature in order to be able to compete with other applications such as Snapchat. Since then, we’ve noticed that the developers of Instagram have added even more features to the application such as hands-free video, filters, stickers, selfie stickers and many other things.
Well, one of the new features that have been added to Instagram is called “Face Filters” and today we will talk about it. First of all, you should know that in order to use filters, you will need o to upgrade the Instagram application to version 10.21.
After that, open the application and select the Home icon located in the lower left corner of the application. Once you do this, you will notice your feed and by swiping right or tapping on the camera icon located in the top left, you will open the “Stories” camera.
Now, you will need to look at the bottom right corner, where you will find a “face” icon. Once you tap on it, you will notice that there are 8 filters, which you can use to put on your face, including koala ears, black rimmed glasses, various crowns etc.
However, if you don’t see the face icon, you will need to force close the application and reopen it, as most likely, the update that you’ve installed has not been applied. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, you will just need to wait, as the developers have mentioned that this feature will be released globally in the coming weeks.
After selecting a filter, you will be able to tap the face icon once more in order to collapse the menu and use the filter along with other camera modes such as: hands-free video, Boomerang, stickers etc.
