Among social media apps, Snapchat is unique. You can post a photo or video that can be visible to your friends for only 24 hours. In a post, you can add filters, lens, bitmoji, and much more to make your post most creative and stylish. Since Snapchat is overshadowed by Facebook and Instagram, a lot of advanced options are not known to most of the users. In this article, we will show you how to use Snapchat filters for your photos and videos.

Snapchat Filters are the editing tools that change the outlook of your post. In Snapchat, there are plenty of filters available like Colour filters, Overlay filters, Geofilters, Bitmoji filters, AR filters, Days of the week filters, and Sponsored filters. You can create your own filters too.
