How to Get the Invisible Filter on Snapchat

Ever since its launch in 2011, Snapchat has had hundreds of filters.

This includes the “Dog”, “Big Mouth”, “Smile”, and other filters.

You can also create your own filter and add it to Snapchat.

Recently, Snapchat released the invisible filter where you’ll be able to turn invisible.

However, if you want to use the filter, you need to manually add it.

This is because you won’t be able to find it directly on the camera on Snapchat.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to get the invisible filter on Snapchat and use it.

To get the invisible filter on Snapchat, you need to open the camera and tap on the smiley face.

After you’ve tapped on the smiley face, tap on “Explore” on the bottom navigation bar.

Lastly, search for the invisible filter, record yourself, and activate it.

To activate the filter, you need to wave your hand across your face.

Similarly, you can deactivate the filter by waving your hand across your face.

You can test out the filter before recording yourself.

These filters are either made by Snapchat themselves or a creator.

You can check this by looking at the name under the filter.

For example, if the name under the filter is “Snapchat”, it means that Snapchat made the filter.

On the other hand, if the name under the filter is “Mike” with a star next to it, it means that a creator made the filter.

Hence, you should select the invisible filter by Snapchat.

That said, you can also try using other invisible filters to see if they are any good.
