Facebook’s Snapchat-style augmented reality face filters are coming to Instagram. Eight different filters will be available starting today, including a few different crowns, ones that make a person look like a koala or a rabbit, and another that sends math equations spinning around your head.
Instagram’s face filters will work whether you’re using the front or the back camera on your phone. You can find them by opening up the camera interface in the app and tapping the new icon in the bottom right corner. The filters can be used in any of Instagram’s shooting modes — photo, video, or even Boomerang. You can access them by downloading the new 10.21 update on the App Store or Google Play Store.
Here’s how to use Instagram’s new face filters
First, open Instagram. Tap the camera button in the top-left corner of the screen.
Then tap the small face icon at the bottom of the screen on the right side.
You can be a nerd, a bunny (rabbit), and something that looks like a koala but those are the filters that are available right now.
