Snapchat has released a new set of filters that are changing the game — or speeding it up, slowing it down or rewinding it.
The app released Speed Modifiers in an update Oct 28 that allow users to speed up, slow down, or rewind the 10-second videos they take. Just record a video and swipe to the left through all of the filter options to find the three new icons — a rewind button, a rabbit and a snail — to apply one of the filters.
This update comes on the heels of a variety of other filters, like custom geofilters for events and cities and filters with a speedometer and a temperature gauge. Most recently, Lenses was introduced in mid-September. This filter places various faces or effects on the user’s photo or video.
Based on Twitter users’ reactions to the update, Speed Modifiers have been well received.
In addition to the Speed Modifiers, this update gives iPhone 6s and 6s Plus owners the option to integrate Apple’s new 3D Touch feature.
