Instagram users can now add face filters to their Instagram Live videos.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network said in a blog post that face filters in Instagram Live videos will roll out globally over the next several weeks, providing the following instructions for users with access to the new feature:

  • Tap the face in the bottom-right corner before or during an Instagram Live broadcast.
  • Tap any filter to enable it, and choose different ones as often as desired.

Instagram added that the sunglasses face filter pictured above is available exclusively for use in Instagram Live videos over the next week.

As with any Instagram Live videos, users can choose to save replays to Instagram Stories or discard them upon completion.
