With the holidays coming up on us, it looks like Instagram is in the mood for some celebration as the company has announced that they will be rolling out a bunch of creative tools to help celebrate the holidays. This comes in the form of new Super Zoom effects, new Face Filters, Stickers, and Color filters.


With the new Super Zoom effects, users will be able to choose from more sound effects, such as Bounce, Beats, or TV Show. As for Face Filters, this is where it gets interesting. “You’ll see three new face filters to get into the festive spirit — celebrate the occasion with balloons bursting with confetti, try out different holiday makeup looks or even draw a heart in snow-frosted glass for a friend.”

There will also be new stickers that users can use to adorn their Stories with, such as a cup of hot chocolate with floating marshmallows, a pair of knitted gloves, a snowman, and more. There will also be new Color filters which appear to be available only to iOS. “If you have an iPhone, you’ll also see an updated set of color filters in the camera. Simply tap the camera icon in the top left of the screen or swipe right from anywhere in feed. Once you’ve captured your moment, swipe left or right to discover different color filters then tap ‘next’ to add to your story or send to friends directly.”

The updates should be live, or should be in the process of rolling out so do keep an eye out for them.
