Game of Thrones Snapchat Filter
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I'm a massive Game of Thrones fan. I may not know every name but my mind has a mental map of every angle and epic battle. Not since Sopranos has there been a television show that's more than a new episode, it's a major event. What an incredible show.
At the start of this past season, the Game of Thrones / HBO marketing team had a brilliant idea: release a Game of Thrones Snapchat filter. The filter is amazing!
When using the front-facing camera, snow flies across the screen and a white walker appears behind the subject of the photo! You can drag your finger to slingshot a dragonglass dagger to kill the white walker as well!
Oh no Ringo! Run!
The back-facing camera is even more impressive: snow flies across the screen, your eyes turn blue, and opening your mouth makes a cold breeze fly out!
You can also record video with the filter:
Getting the Game of Thrones Snapchat Filter
There are two ways to get the Game of Thrones Snapchat Filter:
- In your mobile browser, tap this link.
- Open your Snapchat app and snap a picture of this image:
It's important to note this filter will only last for one hour; you'll need to grab the filter again once it expires.
I look forward to creating my own Snapchat filter in the future, if only to figure out how it's done. Happy snapping!
