On Thanksgiving Day 2016 Snapchat gave all users a great gift – the classic Snapchat dog tongue, nose and ears filter with a twist. Now users can share this filter from the point of view of the dog. It is very well done as the tongue comes out when you tap the screen and the saliva actually shows up on your screen as well. It will be interesting to see if there are different color dogs such as the one with the white ears or the dalmatian.
Here is what the filter looks like:
If you are wondering how to do this filter, you simply hold the screen down while using the front facing camera on Snapchat. The old selfie or face filter options will show up but you can use them for what you are looking at rather than just for selfies. These are called World Lens. There are some really good ones such as the puking rainbows in the clouds, leaves and snow.
Note that only the Snapchat users with the newest versions of the app can use the World Lens. If you have an older model iPhone or iPod you will not be able to do these filters. So, if you have an iPhone 4 or 4s ask for a brand new iPhone 7 for Christmas or Black Friday and you will be able to use all the Snapchat filters.
