Get Ready for Instagram Emojis

"Over the past few years, emoji have become part of a universal visual language. And just as we share photos and videos, we use emoji to communicate emotions and feelings in ways that anyone can understand, regardless of language or background."


Instagram will now be able to support emojis in hashtags. The photo app has also released three new filters.

The new options, which allow users to edit their photos taken with mobile devices before uploading them to the social media platform of their choice or e mailing them, are now available on both Android and iOS systems.

As the technology of smart phones advances and services such as Instagram improve we are getting ever closer to the death of the point and shoot camera. You know the ones; we used to call them PHD cameras – push here dummy.

The three new filters are Lark, Reyes and Juno. According to the company they were inspired by outdoor colors. It calls them a, “family of modern, subtle filters that brighten and enhance your photos in refined, beautiful ways.”

According to Instagram, Lark desaturates reds while “punching up” blues and greens to “bring your landscapes to life.” Reyes brings a dusty, vintage look to your moments. And Juno tints cool tones green while making warm tones pop and whites glow for vibrant photos of people.

There is also a new button feature which allows users to select an emoji to add to their picture posts.

As Instagram stated in its blog post, “With emoji hashtags, you can discover even more by adding them to your own photos and videos, searching them on the Explore page and tapping on them when you see them in captions.”
