Snapchat now allows users to create their own On-Demand Geofilters directly via the messaging app on their phones.
In September of 2016, Snapchat made it really easy for users to create their own On-Demand Geofilters with a special web tool. The tool was also recently revamped, with the introduction of new templates and more. Now, Snapchat users can create their own custom Geofilters directly through their mobile app, without having to use the web tool.
The announcement of the new feature came on Wednesday this week, with Snapchat saying that users can create their On-Demand Geofilters by choosing their theme, and using “many of the same Creative Tools available to decorate Snaps.” To take advantage of the new tool, you will need to tap on “On-Demand Geofilters” in your app settings, were you can choose a theme and add a “personal flair” to your Geofilter. This can include text, Bitmojis, and stickers.
When you are happy with the result, you will need to then pick a time period and place for the Geofilter to appear. This can be an event or an “entire block” for a time period from one hour to 90 days. Finally, once Snapchat has approved your creation, you will need to pay for it. Prices begin at $5.99, but could get quite expensive depending on the time period that you choose.
If you need any further information or help on how to do something, you can always refer to Snapchat’s Geofilters Support Center.
