Learn how to triple layer filters, flowercrown with pals, three-way faceswap and more!
Recently, Snapchat rolled out a few little bells and whistles that everyone may not have noticed or be familiar with. It’s one of the reasons users adore Snapchat so much: It’s constantly changing and coming out with new, creative features on what seems to be a daily basis, and as a user, discovering these little easter eggs is a really awesome feeling!
Besides a few new double-person lenses (and we’ll get into which ones work with more than one person and which don’t a little later on), Snapchat also has a few other hidden easter eggs available.
So grab your phone, open that Snapchat app, and get ready to get a’snappin’ with Snapchat’s newest secrets!
Snapchat Secret No. 1: Double & triple layer filters
As much as people love Snapchat’s filters, it was always bothersome that you could never combine and layer them. It’s either showcase the weather, a geotag, or have a black and white filter. You could never have your cake and eat it too.
But Snapchat appears to have fixed this issue, and people are now able to combine and layer their filters as they please!
To start layering your snaps, first take your picture or video of whatever you want. You can include different lenses if you want, or you could just take a standard photo or video. When you’re happy with your snap, scroll left or right to pick out your filter, but instead of sending it off to your story right away, press and hold one finger on your screen and swipe again to add on another filter.
Want to add another filter on top of that? Repeat the press and swipe motion again. Want to clear all of your filters off your snap? Stop pressing down with one finger and swipe left or right normally to get rid of your filter-iffic mess!
Snapchat Secret No. 2: Two person lenses
After social media queen Kim Kardashian asked for a different dog lens, Snapchat immediately rolled out their first double lens, aka their double-dog dalmatian design (Kim later confirmed this on Snapchat, saying “your mama asked for them to make a Dalmatian” when her daughter North asked about the filter). The lens lets you and your BFF sport dog noses and ears, and since its launch in May, the idea of double-person filtering quickly swept the internet – and Snapchat was obviously listening.
Lenses available for 2 people (so far)

Because Snapchat is always changing things up, we’re hoping to see a world where all of its options are available for more than one person. Afterall, snapping with friends is twice as fun as snapping alone!
Snapchat Secret No. 3: Three-way faceswap
Chances are if you’ve existed IRL in the last few months, you’ve seen at least one hilarious/terrifying/amazing Snapchat faceswap between two people on your social media.
While not necessarily a new-ish feature, you’re actually able to faceswap with up to three people!
To faceswap three ways, simply set up your faceswap the way you normally would in your snapchat, but before opening the lens, make sure your 3 pals are already in the frame and please make sure all of their faces are clear and visible or it won’t work.
When you swipe to the faceswap lens, all three of your faces should be juggled automatically to achieve the most perfect/hilarious/terrifying/amazing faceswap on da face of da planet.
PS, the faceswap option doesn’t work with more than three people…
