Instagram finally snags Snapchat’s beloved selfie lenses with new face filters feature

<article>
   <section class="page">
<p>Instagram introduced its disappearing Stories, a format created by Snapchat, nine months ago. In that time, Stories has racked up 200 million daily active users. Despite criticisms of Instagram’s unoriginality, Stories have clearly been a success. But they’ve been missing one feature that makes Snapchat such a joy to use: the filters that transform your face. That changes now.</p><p>In an update rolling out to Instagram users today, the Stories camera has a new face icon with eight filters that transform you into a different version of yourself. The koala and bunny filters will definitely be a hit with kids, and there are flower crowns for the teens. There aren’t quite as many filter options to choose from, and it’s unclear if Instagram will refresh its filters regularly like Snapchat does, but it’s not a bad start. You can use the filters on both front-facing and rear-facing shots.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3196217/internet/instagram-finally-snags-snapchats-beloved-selfie-lenses-with-new-face-filters-feature.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
