Is there a bigger name in pop music than Taylor Swift right now? Her 116 million followers on Instagram would probably argue, "No". As such, if you are one of those many followers, you may have seen Taylor claim a new "4.26" filter on her story. The problem is that there is no clear instruction for using the filter. That's where we come in.
But first, a quick summary: Instagram welcomes partnerships with the creators to make enlarged reality filters for the platform. Anyone who is a fan of AR effects should welcome this system because it means a flood of new face filter content that Instagram simply couldn't compete against as Snapchat all alone.
So, how do you get access to these filters, especially, Taylor Swift's new filter? Simple. Just follow the account. After @taylorswift on Instagram, you automatically access the filter. When you follow her, switch to your narrator, tap the face icon at the bottom right and find and then press the "4.26" filter. Presto.
Swift says the filter will change every day, so come back and try it every day to see what happens to it. And what exactly is the reason for this "4.26" filter? For a few months, Swift has become a sign that April 26 would be an important day, but no one knows for sure but why. It can be a new album released, a song from an upcoming album, a lifestyle website, swift-centric products, etc. Only time will tell.
