You can now put Instagram filters on your videos

Instagram Live Video face filters will give Snapchat deja-vu

If you ever watch the live videos in the app, they're going to start looking more like stories and photos taken with the app as users will now be able to use the face filters while streaming live video to their followers. Among the selections you can choose from is a new sunglasses filter which will be exclusively available for live video over the next week.

Face filters in live video will be rolling out globally over the next several weeks.

Over the next few weeks you'll probably notice something new on Instagram. Tap the lenses to change what's reflected in them, and maybe trick your viewers into thinking you're in a way cooler place than you are.

Broadcasters are already able to save live videos to their phone after streaming after Instagram updated the feature last March. It's changed the way we are notified of protests, and also provides a fun way for users to share stories or news. Filter options will appear; tap one to see how it looks. Those face filters served to further blur the line between Instagram and Snapchat, and today Instagram is taking it one step forward by adding those same face filters to Live Videos.


The option to save live stream on the phone means more people will now want to go live on Instagram.

All you need to do is tap the face icon in the bottom right corner of your screen during your broadcast.

Instagram will soon allow users to apply awkward Face Filters to their live video broadcasts. The filters are not yet available on Android in live, according to Instagram.
