15 Best Snapchat Filters and Lenses That You Absolutely Want to Try

by Kaushal

Snapchat was the first to introduce lenses for Stories and it got so popular that it has been uphill ever since. Even competitors like Instagram has their own set of filters that offer a personalized touch. One of the reasons behind the immense popularity of these Snapchat lenses and filters is that users can create a personalized filter that gives you hundreds of options. However, it also makes it difficult to find good ones from a sea of clones. That’s why I have made a list of some of the best Snapchat filters and lenses you must try at least once. Let’s check those out.

Best Snapchat Filters and Lenses

1. Screen Scanner Pro

First introduced on TikTok as Time Warp, this filter took the internet by storm and could be seen all over the social media sites and YouTube. While it’s not made by the same person, this Snapchat filter essentially works in a similar fashion. Once you hit the record button, a glowing bar moves from one side to the other (or top to bottom), freezing the row(or column) of pixels creating hilariously ingenious results.

2. Split Time

Split Time is another clever Snapchat lens that splits the preview screen into horizontal sections and as you move, each section delays just a little bit, creating an illusion that you’re glitching in real time. It looks really cool and you can have lots of fun with it.

4. Show Only 1 Color

The next Snapchat filter allows you to shoot Stories in Black and White with just one hue showing up in the entire frame. You can adjust the slider to preview how that color would look on the screen and how many background elements have that hue. It’s finicky at times but works really well in good lighting.
