How Do I Get the Snapchat Selfie Filters?

UPDATE: In early 2016 more and more celebrities are using these face filters. Kylie Jenner, Demi Levato and Hilary Duff are making these selfie filters more popular than ever. Kim Kardashian recently joined Snapchat and she absolutely loves these filters. more and more celebrities are using the face filters.

It looks like we are seeing the second wave of Snapchat lenses after the lens store closed. Read below to find out how the Snapchat lens started and learn about the first few that were offered by Snapchat.

On September 15th, 2015 Snapchat released their latest app update in which there are a few updates. One of the most unique updates available is the selfie filter. If you hold your your thumb or finger down on your face in selfie mode you will be give seven different filters. Below are what the filters look like:

Snapchat Cute Above Head Selfie Filter

Snapchat Drooling Mouth Selfie Filter

Snapchat Underwater Selfie Filter

Snapchat I Love You Fog Window Selfie Filter

Snapchat Zombie Selfie Filter

Snapchat Googly Eyes Selfie Filter

Snapchat Falling Hearts Selfie Filter

From the reports we are hearing, there will be seven Snapchat selfie filters every single day with a new one being rotated in. I would imagine Snapchat will be using the rotated Selfie filter for brands. It will be interesting to see how this comes into play with many large brands wanting to get more engagement and followers on Snapchat. Most of Snapchats users want more views, screenshots and followers; I would imagine it will be the same for brands and businesses. Have you tried out the new selfie filters? Which one is your favorite?

You must not be a very good reader because several people just commented on here saying they have iPhone 5s’ and IPhone 6s’ and someone just said their friend’s iPhone 4 could do it so obviously the generation of phone probably isn’t the issue

i thought it wasn’t working for me then i tried it without recording & it started to work.

-put the camera to were it’s facing you,
before you record,
hold the screen down anywhere until u see the little faces
then choose what face u want and record.

hope that helps

Glad to know mines not the only one that isn’t working. I have an iPhone 5s and I just updated my iOS to the up to date version thinking that might help the snapchat update work. The update still won’t work and I’ve tried everything. Hopefully snapchat recognizes the bug and fixes it in the next update.

holly
Guest

I just figured it out, the trick is to go in selfie front face mode, then keep your finger pressed on your face and the filters should come up, then you hot record or take a pic.

Jessica
