Instagram lets you add those ridiculous Story filters to existing images and videos

Friday, January 25th, 2019

Instagram nowadays is synonymous with three words: Stories, filters, and ads; and the first two are at the crux of the latest addition we spotted in the app. After allowing you to apply filters à la Snapchat while taking photos and videos for your Stories, Instagram has added the option to use those filters after the fact.

Say you have already recorded a cute video and you think it'd be elevated with some bunny ears, or you took a selfie that would look great with purple glitter all over, or you have a ridiculous GIF that could be made even more ludicrous with a large open mouth animation, you can make those edits now.

YouTube is testing Up Next filters on Android

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

 

When you're watching a YouTube video, the app often taunts you with other recommendations you should watch next, and if you have Autoplay turned on, it even goes through that list automatically. However, you rarely have any control over what shows up in this list. A server-side test tells us that this might be changing soon.

Over the past month, we've received a few tips about filter bubbles showing up above the Up Next recommendations.

Snapchat is getting new lenses that recognize and react to speech

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Technology always trickles down to less and less important uses over time. Case in point: speech recognition. It was, at one time, futuristic and incredible that computers could understand us, but now it's just kind of a given. In keeping with its trajectory of increasing mundanity, speech recognition has made its way to perhaps the most frivolous use case of all: Snapchat lenses. (They're actually pretty neat, though.)

The new lenses react to the things you say in a variety of ways.

Instagram video calling, redesigned Explore tab available now

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Instagram's received a considerable update. Weeks after the announcement of Direct video calling integration and testing of a redesigned Explore, the features are now officially available. Instagram has also introduced a number of new camera effects, designed by Ariana Grande, the NBA, and Buzzfeed, among others.

Instagram Direct conversations now have an icon (it's a camera, of course, but I can't not see it as a coffee mug) in the top-right that will open a video call with whomever you're talking to.

Gboard v7.31 adds annotation and more effects for GIFs, new language support [APK Download]

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Gboard added the option to use your phone's camera to create custom GIFs in May. The tool came with a few fun effects to apply over the clips, too, like question marks to express confusion and mock "breaking news" chyrons. An update today brings a few new GIF effects and custom text overlays, as well as more practical improvements like support for additional languages.

As is often the case with new features, we caught wind of the new GIF options in a teardown earlier this month.

Todoist lets you pin projects, labels, and filters to your favorites

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

I use the task manager Todoist every day to stay on top of my pending orders at the pharmacy and I have learned every trick in the book to make the most of it. There's one feature, however, that I never knew I needed this much until it begun rolling out to beta testers last week and started making its way to the stable app today: Favorites.

I have multiple projects and labels to manage, and often find myself on the web app either reaching for the pointer to manually switch between them or using keyboard shortcuts to get to them.

Instagram is adding Face Filters to live broadcasts soon

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

The war between Instagram and Snapchat rages on, and the newest weapon in Instagram's arsenal is the introduction of Face Filters to Live. So the next time you need to jump into a live broadcast to your friends, you'll be able to provide an appropriate sense of gravitas with a pair of rabbit ears. 

The feature appears to work almost exactly as you'd expect. They're Face Filters — an entertaining overlay that follow you as you move — but soon you can use them in live broadcasts.

Twitter rolls out advanced notification filters for muting new accounts and more

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Twitter, like most social media services, is a double-edged sword. It's a great way to keep up with friends, celebrities, and companies in a very quick way. But you can also find trolls, abuse, and other issues that stem from immaturity. In its continuing, but slow-going, battle to combat all of that, Twitter has rolled out some new advanced filters for notifications on the platform.

These allow you to mute other accounts based on several criteria.
