Snapchat Filters are simple photo/video overlays that you can use to add color effects, temperature, speed, location, etc. to your photos or videos. These filters can be accessed by swiping left or right on your camera screen on Snapchat after you have taken a photo or video. There are also location-based filters called Geofilters created by individuals and brands that are accessible within a specific geographic region.

Snapchat Lenses, on the other hand, are special effects and sounds that you can add to your selfies and videos after you have scanned your face with the Snapchat camera. Lenses are mostly built for adding effects to your face and can only be accessed after scanning your facial features.

Snapchat filters and lenses are used interchangeably — and justifiably so because even lenses are in some kind of filters — and most people don’t know the difference between the two.
