Instagram Comes HARD For Snapchat With New Face Filters

In today's update, eight new "face filters" are available, as part of the new 10.21 update to Instagram on Apple's App Store or the Google Play Store. With its cloned product now complete, Instagram will be looking at where to head to next. Just tap the sticker icon at the top right of your screen, select and customize the hashtag, then add it to your story. Since embarking on its mission to win over its upstart rival through simple copying, Instagram has seen remarkable success. Akin to Snapchat, Facebook also recently debuted a camera with which users can add all sorts of silly filters and editing effects to pictures and video.

Instagram Stories have already eclipsed Snapchat's userbase (200m vs 166m) and you can feel it as the majority of people begin moving away from Snap.

Instagram's filters work with both the rear-facing and front-facing cameras. Crowns, animal ears and every other face adorning item that Snapchat made popular now appears in the update. There's a new "Rewind" option that sits right beside Boomerang in the camera window that will play whatever footage you capture in reverse.

Facebook, which in recent months has copied many of Snapchat's features, is back at it again. This lets you fill the entire image with color, then selectively erase sections to reveal the photo beneath. The eraser brush, meanwhile, comes in handy for quickly adjusting photos and videos when experimenting with drawing tools. Elsewhere, the selfie sticker feature was created to utilise the front-facing camera. If a viewer taps the sticker, they'll be taken to the hashtag's page in Instagram's Explore tab. Using the same backbone technology, Instagram could easily introduce a similar platform of its own. "Good ideas start out in one place and spread all across the industry", said Weil.
