As the name suggests here, these are some filters which you will be able to add to your photos and videos when you are in certain parts of the world. Ring any bells? Yes, this is very similar to what Snapchat already has on its application. Well, in a way you can it is simply a copy of what Snapchat already has. Snapchat introduced the Geofilters way before Instagram and is doing quite well.

Having said that, once the Geofilters are available in your location, you will be able to add them by tapping on the Stickers button on the top right corner of the screen. Here you should see the Geofilters based on your location. Do make a note that the Geofilters are not yet available everywhere in the world and is only found in New York City and Jakarta till now and in version 10.11 version of the application. This feature will be available on both iOS and Android and if you are interested in then you should be on the lookout.
