Snapchat Birthday Filters ~ How to use Snapchat birthday filters

Snapchat rolled out special features on February 23rd,2016 that will only be available one day a year, one of which can only be used on your birthday, and one that can only be used if snapping friends on their birthday.

With this update, Snapchat has added new filters and emoji that will show next to the name of friends who are celebrating their special day, essentially serving as a reminder to send them a happy birthday snap like other social networking sites. Lastly the company will be updating the time filter, allowing users to tap it so it displays the day’s date instead of current time.

The feature needs to be manually enabled by heading straight to Settings and choosing the Birthday option. Please note that, since the update only appears to bring the birthday features, if those features aren’t enabled then nothing will show up.

Enabling the feature also helps Snapchat, since a person’s birthday is valuable data that can be sold on again to advertisers. Twitter took advantage of the same thing last year when it added special animations that come up on a person’s birthday, and a field showing it on people’s profiles — which also worked as a way of encouraging people to make their personal information public.

How to get Snapchat birthday filters

If you want to set up the Birthday Party feature on Snapchat don’t worry, the process is easy and will take you no time at all. To activate the birthday features on snapchat and get exclusive happy birthday lenses as well as a few more features, all you have to do is follow this short list of instructions.

First, you need to let Snapchat know your birth day. Update your Snapchat app to the latest version, then you need to enable this feature on Settings –> My Account, then tap on Birthday.

You need to confirm your birthday to make sure the information is correct, then tap okay

When you enable the birthday feature of the new Snapchat update, you will get a Cake Emoji next to your username on Snapchat. The cake emoji for your birthday on Snapchat will be visible to people who have added you. This way they will know it is your birthday and send you happy birthday snaps. The 2016 birthday party update also allows you to use an exclusive lens on the day of your birthday. This allows you to share with all your friends that it is your birthday. After your big day is over the happy birthday snapchat lens will no longer be available.

Happy Snapping!
