Facebook is giving us one more gift this year in 2016 with new Facebook Messenger Filters!You can now add cartoon and comical icons, emojis and backgrounds to your photos and videos in Messenger. I discovered them yesterday and just had to try them out. Here’s how you can try them out too!
After logging into Facebook Messenger, simply click the “2017” button in the bottom center of your app.
You’ll then see a video screen where you can add filters to a Facebook Messenger video. Slide/swipe your screen to the left to view your photo gallery on your phone and select an image to use.
You can then choose a background to surround your photo with (e.g. Ring in 2017, I’m Feeling, etc.). I love how they have different holidays including Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, etc. You can also insert objects such as thought bubbles, party horns, glasses, etc. that you can drag and resize around your pic for added fun effects!
After adding your filters, simply send it along to your favorite Facebook friends! You can also download a copy of your picture to your phone.
Have you tried Facebook Messenger’s new filters yet? Happy New Year!
