It is an amazing feature which drives the user to be comfortable to share pictures without the heap of photos shared in a line.

Again, GIFs, photos and videos can be filtered inside the camera itself for iOS users. The photo when selected will give you an option to select the filters. A simple swipe allows you to choose the filters.
