New Snapchat Filter: Augmented reality mask that responds to sounds
Tired of moving your eyes or sticking your tongue out to watch a change in Snapchat mask? Good news!! Something fun is coming soon as Snapchat has a new lens reaction that responds to sound!
You can try the new animal face mask which changes based on the sound in the environment!
How does it look like!
The new mask is a pair of neon-colored, round ears, a heart-shaped nose, and a pair of whiskers. When the sound in the room gets louder, the ears grow. The filter’s colors and sparkles also adjust with the sound.
Multiple people: no problem! The mask is also one of Snapchat’s options that work with multiple people in the image.
The new sound filter can be used for both stills and video, with the latter showing off the sound reactions.
Sound based filters: coming your way
Doesn’t sound interesting? Or maybe neon disco ears are not your thing? Additional sound-based filters are coming right your way! Snapchat hasn’t shared what how they will look like, but they will be available on your screens over the next few weeks.
Analysis on Snapchat filters
The carousell of augmented filters already has different reaction triggers. Most are based on what the camera sees, including the puppy dog face that adds a dog tongue when users stick their own tongue out.
Though the new animal mask appears to be the first that reacts to sound. Other filters are equipped with a voice changer, but the visual filter itself doesn’t react with the sounds in the room.
Snapchat recent updates
The latest filter expands Snapchat’s heavily imitated augmented reality camera. Snapchat also recently added playable AR games to its queue. The company’s latest updates also include unskippable video ads.
