Snapchat Baby Filter: Everything You Need to Know

What is Snapchat Baby Filter?

Snapchat baby filter is one of the new filters in the Snapchat app. Instead of adding a beard or changing the gender, it turns you into a baby. As much as it can. The filter changes the mature features of your face and instead makes your face baby like. Think chubby cheeks, bigger eyes, and general roundness and cuteness. You are going to look adorable in this filter.

How is Snapchat Baby Filter Being Used Online

Like every other viral Snapchat filter, it started as a way for people to post their own baby face selfies online. Once that wave was done, people started using it on others. In photos and videos.

The best use of baby filters online is on celebrities and fictional characters. It’s awesome to watch all Marvel characters with the babyface filter. Same goes for the cast of The Office.
