This New Filter Of Snapchat Can Make Your Selfies Look Younger Or Older

With an AR Time Machine feature, Snapchat offers its users a tool to see themselves at younger and older ages

In the competition to gain users’ attention, no social media platform seems to shy away from recycling other’s ideas and add a twist to them. With an AR Time Machine feature, Snapchat offers its users a tool to see themselves at younger and older ages.

The feature is launched on the 21st of November.

The Time Machine filter of Snapchat can make a selfie looks older or younger, all users have to do is to slide a slider forward or backward. This filter is the design of Snapchat and it is just a part of the new feature carousel.

The Time Machine bears some resemblances to other popular filters introduced by the platform, like the gender swap or the baby filter.

The idea of making people look older or younger was popularized by FaceApp, which experienced brief fame before someone pointed out that the Russian company behind the feature had the right to use the pictures in any way it wants.

By snatching the idea and adding some of its own touch and tech, Snapchat may hope for the same level of viral. And as the face swap being a huge success, that ambition is not far-fetched at all.

While this time, Snapchat borrowed the idea from FaceApp, it is usually the one that ideas are stolen from. Snapchat’s key feature has been recycled and appears everywhere on Facebook, Instagram, and even YouTube.

The younger audience is showing different kinds of interest and other platforms are learning from Snapchat to be more appealing to them. Despite that trend, the platform recently underwent a massive redesign to make itself more relevant to older generations and new users.
