This Instagram Emoji News Is Huge
Instagram just announced two new features to make your photo-sharing experience even better.
First up, you can now hashtag emoji in your captions, plus search for them in the Explore page or by tapping on them in captions. "Over the past few years, emoji have become a universal visual language, and nearly half of Instagram captions feature emoji," Instagram said.
The other news is the addition of three new filters: Lark, Reyes and Juno, which Instagram describes as "modern, subtle filters that brighten and enhance your photos in refined, beautiful ways." Part of the reason for these new filters, Instagram says, is how well people responded to the five filter updates back in December. Instagram plans to release more new filters on a regular basis.
Ahead, check out examples of how they look. The update is available today for Android and iOS.
