All The Snapchat-Like Features You Can Now Use On Instagram
The Debrief: If you liked it then you should've put a filter on it
Have you updated your Instagram recently? And by recently we mean, right this very second? Go on, dare you to go do it while you’re sat at your desk. If you do, you might be greeted with the new news that you can now use…wait for it…face filters on Instagram, as revealed on the Instagram blog.
We know, we know, how is this different to Snapchat? Let us enlighten you.
1. Face filters for Instagram
Including a koala with twitching ears and a flower crown. Oh, and you can add your filters to boomerangs, something that hasn’t be done before on any social media platform. Thanks insta.
2. The rewind function,
Where you can record videos then in the words of Craig David, R-E-W-I-N-D.
3. The Eraser Brush
So if you make a mistake when writing with the highlighter pen, you can now rub it out.
4. The hashtag sticker
This basically means you can now add hashtags to your story that will be recognised with the hashtag search function within Instagram.
Social media companies borrowing from their rivals isn’t a new thing, and it would seem that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix (change) it is the latest phrase they live by. That being said, putting a filter on your face will always be fun – so excuse us while we go test it out.
