Instagram announced today that they will be adding new face filters, very similar to snapchats latest update. This is great, I mean name one person (especially females) that don’t use the filters on snapchat. Why am I only realising that I look better as a pig or with a pair of dog ears on than my face by itself?! All jokes aside, the filters can make a funny situation even funnier, or give you that extra glam you were looking for.

The update will include eight different filters, including a crown, a rabbit and more. The rewind option is also available if you really want to get creative. They can work whether you’re using the front or back camera and is easy to access, just open up the camera on Instagram and tap the new icon in the bottom right corner. All filters can be used in photo and video, not forgetting Boomerang.

I think it’s time to update your phone to 10.21 guys!
