Instagram today announced that it has added face filters to live video. Users can try on these filters when they’re sharing live video. A variety of filters are being offered that users can choose from depending on their mood. They can easily try on these filters while broadcasting live video to their friends and family on Instagram.
In order to use face filters in live video, users have to tap the face icon in the bottom right corner before or during their broadcast. They can tap on any filter to check out how it looks and play around with as many filters as they like.
The new sunglasses face filter is available exclusively in live video for the next week. It’s possible to tap to change the scenery reflected in the lenses as well.
Once the broadcast ends, users can share a replay to Stories or choose “Discard.” If that’s the option they choose their live video will disappear from the app as usual.
Instagram says that users will be able to check out face filters in live videos over the next several weeks. It’s going to be a while before all Instagram users across the globe can try out this new feature.
