Snapchat is known for their entertaining filters that magically make selfies flawless and now, the app has launched more filter features that will make mundane pictures a little bit more interesting. Snapchat object recognition filters are made with smart technology allowing the app to recognize what’s in your photos and then suggest relevant borders and stickers use with them. It’s similar to the technology that allows Facebook to recognize specific faces for tagging purposes, but this takes it a step further.
The update comes ahead of a massive app redesign as the company tries to keep users and advertisers engaged. In this article, we’ll tell you about how to get Snapchat’s object recognition filters. Read on.
Snapchat Object Recognition Filters
Filters not only provide Snapchat users with an easy way to decorate snaps sent to their friends and to their Stories, but they also generate revenue for the company. Brands can pay to sponsor filters, which can be activated based on a user’s location or available to a subset of users based on interests. With such augmented reality feature, Snapchat is trying to wipe away other social media networks like Instagram and Facebook Messenger.
Snapchat’s new filters will recognize objects like food, pets, sports, and specific locations, like beaches or concerts. In order to avail the new Snapchat object recognition filters, you can start by updating the app even if you think it’s fully updated. Once you’re done, you can take a photo of your pet or food or any of the other above-mentioned categories. When you take a snap, just swipe through the filter carousel. From there, you’ll be able to see the location filters and black-and-white filters, and near the end of the carousel should be the object-specific filters. Well, you’ll see filters saying “Pet Cam” for animals, “Single, taken, hungry” for food, and “Ocean View” for the beach, among others.
