Do Snapchat Filters Work on Animals?

Do you love to take cute pictures of your pets? Are you knowledgeable about Snapchat? If so, you might be dying to put cute filters on your pet’s photos.

The good news is: you can do it with Snapchat. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work. If you’re new to this phenomenon, follow the steps below to start your Snapchat pet filter adventure.

Step 1 – Update Your App

Snapchat released an object recognition software update for the app in late 2017. If you’ve updated the app since then, you probably already have this software.

If you don’t, refer to the steps below:

for iPhones

Go to the App Store icon and tap on it. In the lower right corner of the App Store home screen, you will see an option for Updates. Tap on it.

Then tap Update All at the top of the screen. Enter your password when prompted and wait for your apps to update.

For Android Phones

Go to the Google Play Store icon and tap on it. Tap on the menu option and then tap on “My apps & games” from the next menu. Google automatically checks for new updates for your installed apps. If you have updates available, tap on Update All and wait for your updates to install.

Step 2 – Take a Picture of Your Pet

Now it’s time to take a picture of your pet. Open your Snapchat app and take a picture of your pet. It may be helpful to try this when your pet is relaxed and willing to take care of you.

Step 3 – Apply Filter

Finally, apply a filter to your new pet picture. Scroll through your filter carousel until you get close to the end. This should be where the new object-specific filters are. You can use these or other installed filters.

Also, you may have different filter options pop-up depending on your pet photos, as the software works on object-specific recognition.

Photo Filters and Selfie Filters

If you’re a Snapchat expert, you might already know the difference between photo and selfie filters. But if you’re new to the platform, you may need to know the difference between the two before trying to filter your pet.

You see, the new object-specific recognition software for Snapchat applies to photo filters. This means you take a photo using the Snapchat app and then add a filter. You can see smart stickers and frames applied to photos using such filters.

However, if you’re hoping to take silly pictures of your dog’s face using Snapchat filters, that’s a whole other story.

Selfie filters are a little more high-tech and dynamic. The app should not only recognize your pet, but also recognize your pet’s face. If you want to try this option, follow these quick steps:

Step 1 – Open the App

First, open your Snapchat app and make sure your pet’s face is on your phone screen. You may need to wait for your pet to relax or sit still before trying this.

Step 2 – Face Recognition

Next, touch your pet’s face on the screen and hold it there until you see grids of white lines on its face. This means the app recognizes your pet’s face. If you have trouble recognizing your pet’s face, you may need to adjust the distance and lighting.

Step 3 – Apply Selfie Filters

Finally, after Snapchat successfully recognizes your pet’s face, a set of filters will pop up near the bottom of the screen. These are selfie face filters that can change the look of your pet.

You may also want to know that some pet faces are not registered with the app.

If you’re determined to take a pet selfie with a filter, there are other apps you can use with Snapchat.

Pet Filter Alternatives

So you tried to take pictures of your pet using Snapchat, but the app doesn’t recognize your pet’s face. Do not worry. You are not alone and the appropriate software is still a work in progress.

But you don’t have to wait for the app to catch your beloved pet’s face. If you’re ready to add filters to your pet’s pictures, you might want to try some third-party apps instead.

There are several pet photo editor apps available on Google Play and the iTunes App Store. Some are free to download and install, but in-app purchases may be required to access all filters.
