If you are a frequent user of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, you probably know about the latest addition of Snapchat app, which adds new and crazy filters. If you thought those color filters were cool, these new filters are even better. You can interact with them while you take a picture or record a video.
I have noticed many people asking if these filters work on Android or they are on iOS only. The answer is they are available for Android devices as well. And no, it doesn’t matter if you have the latest Android flagship or an older device. All it matters is the Android version.
The new Snapchat filters are available on Android 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop. They won’t work on older versions like Android 4.4 KitKat. Now that know these new Snapchat filters work on Android as well, here’s how to use them.
The first thing you have to do is to update the Snapchat app to the latest version if you haven’t done so already. Head over to the Play Store and search for the app and click on the “Update” button.
Open the app and launch the front-facing camera app. Make sure you are directly facing the camera without an angle and long press on the screen. The app will scan your face and then the new filters will appear.
You can choose from different filters like scary monsters, rainbow vomit, love heart, aged filter and more. You can take a picture and even record videos.
