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…

[…] 4 and 4s models. We are now learning that the latest Snapchat selfie filters are not available on Android model phones. That means no matter what Android operating system you are using the latest Snapchat features are […]
