Instagram Face Filters Go Live

Instagram Face Filters Go Live

To start trying out the new Instagram face filters, users just need to open the camera and, in the bottom right corner, tap the new face icon to select any filter they want to try on. Simply called Rewind, the new feature can be found right in the middle of Boomerang mode and Hands-Free mode. Boomerang works in a similar way, but instead loops the short burst of recording back and forth. It is now including the same functionality in Stories, which will allow you to include a hashtag sticker that can be customized and interacted with. Anyone will then be able to tap the sticker and see related posts.

Weil likened it to Facebook coming up with the News Feed or Twitter pioneering hashtags, both of which are now widely adopted across apps and social networks. With the eraser brush users can erase things they've drawn and replace it with something else, or play around with color.

Duterte attends Belt and Road Forum in China
While some see Beijing's project as a geopolitical power play, Mr Xi has insisted that the Belt and Road is open to everybody. Xi said that 68 countries have signed the agreement of cooperation.

Instagram is also today rolling out more creative tools in the camera. Instagram also added the ability to type a hashtag in your story, which will take users to a Hashtag story for that particular hashtag.

Still, the more ubiquitous lenses become, the less power they have, which could be a problem for Snapchat.

It was Ottawa's fifth overtime win of the postseason, including a double-overtime victory here against the Rangers in Game 2. They're a team, not just with experience, but they're a team that has so many tools and we know they're largely favourites.

This update is the latest in a long line of incremental changes that have been made to the app in the past year. Instagram Stories alone has more than 200 million.

The most Snapchat-like feature arriving in version 10.21 is selfie filters.

Have you tried out the new Instagram tricks? Then, using the eraser brush, they can show parts of the photo or video underneath. During his TechCrunch Disrupt interview, Weil reluctantly acknowledged that Instagram's strategy around stories and filters was inspired by and came at the expense of Snapchat. If you recall, these filters have previously reached Facebook's stories clone.
