Snapchat and TikTok launch augmented reality filters for animals.

Social networks Snapchat and TikTok have recently developed a new feature for our best friends: augmented reality filters. For both dogs and cats, these filters will allow you to personalise your photos and videos by making your pets even more adorable. 

How do animal filters work?

The augmented reality filters are becoming increasingly popular and offer a number of possibilities to users. This technology is very popular with social networks, which are one by one trying to diversify by innovating and inventing new concepts. Snapchat and TikTok recently launched a new augmented reality filter for dogs and cats. Users have been very keen to adopt it and are taking pictures of their pets using the many filters available on social networks.

Using the camera of a smartphone or computer, augmented reality is a simple overlay of 2D and 3D content in the real world. Algorithms will recognise the different shapes and thus change your appearance or add scenery. 

Similarly, augmented reality filters for animals work in the same way. They are able to easily identify the animal and are optimised to give you the best possible experience.
