Snapchat has a huge range of filters and is provided to the users based on the region or the location of them. This makes a particular filter for a specific region and hence becomes popular among the users there. Basically, snapchat provides filters on these categories.

Geo Filters: These are the filters that I was talking about just above. So they are based on a particular region and change if you move from one location or are to other. Every filter is designed to suit the community or the region of that are.

Color Filter: You can apply the basic color filters that are available everywhere. They have the options of Black & White, bright, vintage, and sepia.

Video Only filters: These are the filters which are accessible and applicable only for the videos. There are options for rewind, fast-forward and slow motions are some of the options of these filters.

Data filters: This type of filter adds some filters based on the current database, such as the temp of the place, time of the picture, battery condition of your device.
