Snapchat Update on June 8th, 2015 Includes Battery Filters


On Monday, June 8th, 2015 there was a major Snapchat update for iPhone users. Early in the day the update was not available to Android users but I am positive it will be available in the Google Play Store within the next 24 hours. Below are the updates to Snapchat:

  • Double tap the screen while recording a Snap to switch between the selfie and rear-facing cameras!
  • Login Verification — when you log in to Snapchat on a new device, we can send you a SMS code to make sure it’s you! Turn on this feature in Settings.
  • Battery filters — add a little something to your Snaps when you’re all juiced up 🙂 or low on battery 🙁

UPDATE: The battery filters work above 95% and below 10%. They look like this:

low-battery-snapchat-filterbattery-filter-snapchat-high-full

The battery filters and the double tap on the screen to switch from a rear facing to a front facing camera will likely be the most used. I tried out the double tap feature and it works very well. I had 86% battery on my iPhone 5s and there was no battery filter. I would imagine the batter filters will be available when you are at 100% or 95%+ and lower than 20%. I will try them out over the next 24 hours and post some screenshots.

I tried out the battery filter and found out that anything above 95% allows you to use the filters. I am going to try to drain my battery and see how low it has to get to use the low battery filter.

Have you downloaded the newest version of Snapchat? What do you think?

Why can’t there just be a filter regardless!? No matter what the percent is! Because I am on 45% as I type this!

I don’t understand the filter situation though. So you take a picture and if you are above 95 or lower than 10 you get more filters??

guys this is getting so overrated and over the top! if your phone is on 1-10 it will get the battery percentage. if your phone is on 95-100 you will get the battery percentage, but it mostly works when it’s on 100, not 95. you don’t get anymore filters but the three they already have. all your getting is the new battery percentage & when you double tap the screen it changes the camera ( either on selfie or regular pic) I hope this works for everyone out there with questions!!! please read this cuz it’s very helpful and pretty… Read more »

I wish that rather than making these battery filters that they reduced the battery usage of the app, it is the biggest battery hog on my phone.

Guys for those of you who find that the battery filter is not working, be sure to make sure location services is turned on. If it is not turned on in your settings for this app, the filters will not work !
