In the latest development for the ever-growing social media platform Snapchat is adding in-film video filters to its stories and snaps.
Snapchat recently acquired video filters app Looksery in order to add the sure-to-be-popular capability to its existing video features. The app boasted several different video filters, intended both to create more flattering images and to add layers of goofy, creepy or amusing animations to clips. Some of the anticipated video filters allow users to give their selfies thinner faces, better lighting or brighter eyes. Others transform their subjects into skeletons, zombies or cyborgs, or make animated rainbows and emojis appear on the screen.
With the addition of these video filters, Snapchat is poised to become the social media platform of choice for posting selfies.
