To date, facial filters only work for human faces, but with the new update, the application can now identify cats.
It's a 21st century problem, but it has the potential to ruin the humorous potential of many of the photos we take with our pets. We're talking about the inability apps have to detect … snouts. To date, Snapchat's face filters only work on human faces, but with the new update, the application can now identify the cats' heads.
With this news, the company also launched a group of new lenses, specifically designed to be applied to your feline companion. TechCrunch explains that this system was developed based on an object recognition technology that Snap had previously created. This technology suggested a set of filters, depending on the object framed in the camera.
In this case, you can apply a bulging eye on your cat, or put a slice of bread around your head. The filters available are several, but based on the video released by Snap, they do not seem to work with dogs.
