Instagram face filters for live video streaming have been launched. The company made the announcement on its blog post. The new face filter update will be rolled out worldwide over the next several weeks. Instagram in addition to filters that are already available for video and images, has added new sunglasses face filters which will only be available in live video. Interestingly, people can tap on the screen to change the scenery on their lenses.

Using the new Instagram update is a piece of cake. Users just have to click on the face icon at the bottom right corner before or during live streaming. There are many options for the users to choose from and they can tap on them to use it during the broadcast. As per the Instagram Blogspot,”When your broadcast has ended you can share a replay to stories, or choose “Discard” and your live video will disappear from the app as usual.”

The face filter for videos was introduced by Instagram earlier in May. Currently, there are more than 15 face filters that the users can choose from while uploading a video or picture.

Instagram is becoming popular across the world for sharing videos and photos. The social media platform is poised to become as big as Facebook in the next few months, as per Indian Express report. The report further adds that the service now has over 700 million monthly active users, and it added 100 million new users in just over four months. Stories, which was rolled out in August last year, has helped Instagram grow immensely. The feature currently has over 250 mn daily active users, which is bigger than Snapchat app itself.
