Snapchat Selfie Filters Not Working on Android Phones

At least a dozen Android owners have snapped or emailed me to tell me the new Selfie Filters do not work on their phone. Everything from a Samsung Galaxy S5 to a Droid Turbo do not work. One would think Snapchat would be all over this. Let them know via the poll below if your Android is able to do the new Selfie Filters. If it is not able to please comment with your Android phone and the operating system you are running.


Hopefully Snapchat will see this post and will make the necessary updates so all Android users can enjoy the update as much as the iPhone users.

          Not everyone can afford better phone you know! Be considerate of the people who actually have more important obligations to adhire too than to sit up all night on a stupid phone being the latest model. You are a child because you speak like a child. Please, kindly keep your halfwitted remarks to yourself.

      Im on a Nexus 5 running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, snapchat should really improve their development… since snapchat in 6.o is trash, I cant even send a video. Beware that 6.0 WILL be released to the public on Tuesday (September 29). The world will catch fire if its not working by then.

      Can everybody chill, my phone is a samsung galaxy s4 mini even though I have snapchat BETA I still dont have the new features. Anyway, I believe on the newer versions of android if you get snapchat beta you will get an update with all the features and etc. To get snapchat beta go to your menu and scroll down a little to find snapchat beta it will bring you to snapchat.com/beta and follow whatever it says and there you go…

    I have a samsung galexy S5. Snapchat will let me take pictures with the new update but it won’t let me make a video. Why is it that only certain phones can make videos with the new update and others can’t? Also, when I’m making a video I don’t have a button where I can turn my camera around like most phone’s do. I don’t understand why only certain phone can get the full updates and others can’t. Doesn’t make sense to me. These updates should apply to all phone’s and not just certain ones.

    1. Lemuel

      Hey I had the same problem as you. I updated and didn’t get any filter lenses. First, make sure your G3 is up to date. Go to Settings > General > About phone > Software info. Android version should be 5.0.1 or higher for the filter lenses to appear in your snapchat. Now here’s what I did that might work for you too: Go to Settings > General > Apps. Swipe right to the “All” tab, then scroll down to find “Google Play Services”. Tap on it and find where it says “Clear Cache”. Clear the cache, then try restarting your phone. After restart, a notification from the Play Store should come up saying you have some updates, Snapchat being one of them. Update it then check your snapchat again. With the front facing camera, press and hold on your face in the screen, and you should have them. Hope this helps you!

    All phones I have tested running their latest (to date) OS:

    LG L’fino running 4.4.2 Kitkat – Not Working

    Samsung Galaxy S2 running 4.2(?) Jellybean – Not Working

    Samsung Galaxy S6 running 5.1.1 Lollipop – Working

    Interesting to note that while the normal S6 works with the lenses, the S6 Edge and Edge+ models (to my knowledge) do not.

    While the S2 wasnt a surprise, the L’Fino should be receiving the Lollipop update soon, it is unlikely but some speculate it has something to do with the OS so we will see, but that doesnt explain the Edge models not working.

I can’t switch cameras while recording, I can’t replay anything, and I most definitely can not use lenses! I want this fixed ASAP!

    I have an iPod touch 5th gen and installed snapchat’s new update, does not work at all. Was looking forward to the new features! Get it together snapchat so that we all can use the new features. A very upset snapchat user!

    Its not allowing me to do them either.. The circles come up. When the camera faces forward and not on selfie mode, the circles come up when touching the middlenof the scteen and that’s it.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I can’t use the new filters. My phone isn’t even that old and all of the software updates are current. I don’t understand why everything shouldn’t work. Hopefully it’s a glitch and they’ll make the new features compatible with more phones soon.

    For newer androids (I have the note 4) you have to have the front camera active, then make sure your face is clearly visible in the screen, then hold down on your face for about 5 seconds or so, the new filters should pop up.

    Finally Fixed it!!! Opened up my Play Store and there was a new update for Snapchat. After I downloaded and installed, the selfie filters finally work!! Still missing the double tap iPhone users have, which switches the rear facing camera to the front facing camera while recording a video.
