CIOL- Instagram brings face filters to live videos

Facebook-owned Instagram, which introduced face filters to photos in May is now bringing the feature to live videos as well. The new feature allows users to add visual effects to a live video including sunglasses, a rainbow and even a cloud casting shade.


To use the face filters in a live video, tap the face icon in the right-hand corner before or during the broadcast. Tap on any filter, check out how it looks and try out the filter. When the broadcast has ended, a replay can be shared to your story, or you can choose 'Discard' and the live video will disappear from the app as usual. The sunglasses filter even allows users to tap to change the scenery reflected in the lenses of the filter.

The videos featuring the face filters can be shared with friends through Instagram Direct or could be added to your story.

Instagram says that the rollout is officially beginning today and will be available to users across the globe by the next "few weeks".
