Instagram adds face filters for live video

Social media app Instagram announced today that users can now employ face filters while sharing live video. Among the selections you can choose from is a new sunglasses filter which will be exclusively available for live video over the next week. Instagram thought of everything; you can change the scenery reflected in the glasses with a simple tap. Once you've completed your live video, you can have it replayed in stories. Or, you can delete the broadcast by tapping on discard.

To use face filters during a live video, before or during your broadcast you need to click on the face icon at the bottom right of the screen. Tap any filter to change your look during the live video, and you can use as many face filters as you want.

Starting today, Instagram is beginning to push out face filters for live video. If you don't receive this new capability for a while, be patient. Instagram says it will take several weeks to complete the global rollout of this new feature.
