Snapchat Incorporates Cat Filters

Waning social media app Snapchat has unveiled a new AR feature with the app’s latest update that puts fun filters on your cat while in selfie mode.

The update makes use of new facial recognition software that can successfully identify cats’ faces as well as those of human users.

The announcement came alongside some slightly concerning news for the app’s investors, namely that Snap has seen a significant decline in daily users, bringing the number down to a reported 188 million.

Analysts have scrambled to explain the decline. Among the most significant factors are Kylie Jenner’s announcement that she would stop using the app earlier this year. There has also been a shift in young teen users, who more commonly flock to picture-sharing app Instagram, which recently added a story feature very similar to Snapchat’s, as well as capability for live streaming to followers.
