Instagram wages war on Snapchat with Face Filters

However, you might be wondering where is the hashtag sticker in Instagram stories - and if you are, you're in luck: Here's how you get to it. Tap to view and try on different filters for your face.

A Rewind feature lets you record videos and share them in reverse, hence the word Rewind. They'll follow your movements so they appear to remain static on your face. It's a subtle but more mature selfie filter than Snapchat's. This is an Instagram original-Snapchat has done Stories around special events and is testing a Story Search function, but location-based Instagram Stories will fully leverage Instagram's robust location graph.

Instagram's face filters will work whether you're using the front or the back camera on your phone. In the camera, users now have the option to create a "Rewind" video. In the end, however, you could envision the capacity to hunt Stories by hashtag, or watch a "Hashtag Story" arranged from all the openly noticeable Stories with that name. To add a hashtag to a photo or video simply take the photo or video and then select the "Aa" tool. Followers will be able to tap the hashtag to access other posts with the same hashtag.

Wizards beat Celtics 116-89 in technical foul-filled Game 3
If they manage to tie the series up, they will be comfortable with exactly where they are, the same can not be said about Boston. The Boston Celtics won 53 games in the regular season and needed 6 more to knock out the Bulls in the first round.

Instagram has launched a new range of Snapchat-style features. Since embarking on its mission to win over its upstart rival through simple copying, Instagram has seen remarkable success. Such filters, which are already available in Facebook's main app, were being tested by Instagram internally for the last few months, says Business Insider, citing a person familiar with the matter. The company's rise has led to a greater focus on extending its growth period for as long as possible, an aim reflected in last week's overhaul of the Instagram web app.

"If we're being honest with ourselves, this is the way the tech industry works and frankly, it's how all industries work", said Instagram's head of product Kevin Weil at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in NY, when asked about the similarities between Instagram's new features and Snap's existing ones. Instagram needs to be the one-stop look for visual correspondence, regardless of your age.
