Snapchat is a mobile app that lets you connect with friends via photos and videos. What sets it apart from other social platforms? You can make it so that your ‘snap’ will self-destruct once it’s been opened. That way, you won’t have to worry about your messages lurking somewhere on the internet.
You can also stream videos, post stories, play games, share your location, and more. If anything, that’s one of the reasons why the app is so popular. In the U.S. alone, there are more than 108 million active users!
And in 2014, they released filters. Basically, they’re virtual effects that you can lay on top of your snaps. Some will change the background while others will add things to the screen (some of which may alter your appearance). At the end of the day, it all depends on the snapcode that you’ve chosen!
Top Black and White Snapchat Filters For 2022
On this page, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite black and white aka monochrome filters. Some are designed for selfies while others are more versatile. Why not give them a try? If anything, they’ll make your snap stand out that much more!
Without further ado, here are the filters.
1. Scary Wolf Snapchat Lens
How do you feel about wolves? Because this filter will add a virtual one to your snap! All you have to do is scan the snapcode. The majestic creature will appear as soon as the camera turns on and as you can see, everything will be in black and white, including the wolf himself!
Well, kind of. You see, his eyes will be a bright red—almost flame-like color. And he won’t just be standing around either. He’ll be moving across the screen just like a real wolf. And at one point, he’ll even start howling, which you can see in the example above. So yeah, you might want to take a video if you want to capture that in your snap!
2. Suit Style Snapchat Filter
Don’t have a suit but want to take a snap in a suit? Then check out this filter! It’ll change what you’re wearing in the blink of an eye—just scan the Snapcode and it’ll work its magic. The next thing you know, you’ll be wearing a fancy suit, bowtie and all. And it’s not just for guys, ladies can use it too!
Aside from the suit, you’ll also be wearing a pair of glasses. Retro-looking glasses with super round frames. Oh, and there will be a swirl of hair coming down on your forehead. And most importantly of all, everything will be in black and white! It kind of gives it that ‘retro’ vibe, don’t you think?
3. Whistle My Shirt Snapchat Filter
Add this filter to your snap and Felix the Cat will appear! Where? On your shirt! And guess what? He’ll be animated—you’ll actually be able to see him walk and whistle (thus the name of the filter). If that sounds cool, scan the Snap code. He’ll appear as soon as you step in front of the camera!
And as you can see from the screenshot, everything will be in black and white, including your face! It’s just part of the effect. But yeah, definitely take a video if you can. That way, you’ll be able to capture his walking and whistling, which is kind of the main highlight of the filter!
4. Wolf In Glasses Snapchat Lens
Why take a regular selfie when you can take one as a wolf? Cause that’s what this filter is for! Scan the snapcode and a pair of pointy ears will appear on your head. They’ll move and everything—you just can’t tell from the screenshot!
Also, you’ll get a pair of glasses. Sunglasses, to be exact and you’ll be able to change the color of the lenses! Just tap on the screen—the color will change automatically. Oh, and did I mention? The filter will give you a little wolf’s nose as well!
5. In the Shower Snapcode
This filter will let you take a snap in the shower! Just scan the snapcode and the camera will turn on. The next thing you know, water will be dripping down from the ceiling. Oh, and all color will be gone—everything will appear in black and white.
Go on, step in front of the camera. Your appearance will change as soon as your face is on the screen! For one thing, your hair will wet. Super wet. Your face will also be a little blurred, which makes sense seeing as how you’re in the shower. For those who want to know what it’s like, refer to the example above!

Everything else will be black and white, including your face. The only color on the screen will be the mask and your eyes. Oh, and for those who are wondering, you can actually take the mask off—you just have to open your mouth!
7. Fire In Eyes Snapchat Lens
This filter will literally add flames to your ‘eyes’! Want to see what I mean? Then scan the snapcode. The effect will come up as soon as you point your camera at your face. The second you do that, everything will turn black and white.
And see that? You’ll be wearing a pair of shades on your face. Not just any shades, but ones with flames in the lenses. If anything, that’s the only color that you’ll be able to see on the screen! With that said, there is the option of taking them off—just give them a tap! Oh, and yes, those are tiny horns on your head.

This filter won’t make your snap completely black and white—there will be some colorful smoke as well. If anything, that’s the main highlight! The rest of the snap, including your face, however, will be monochrome. To see the effect for yourself, scan the snapcode.
Once you do that, you’ll see yourself on the screen, and just like we said, everything will be black and white—except for the smoke that’ll be coming off the top of your head! It’ll be orange, yellow, green, red, blue, pink, you name it! And yes, it’s animated so you’ll actually be able to see it spread throughout the screen.

To activate the effect, all you have to do is scan the snapcode. The selfie camera will turn on and the little guy will appear in front of you automatically. You can see what he looks like in the example above. You have to admit, it’s pretty cute. I mean, who can resist those little paws? It’s like he’s asking for a bear hug!

Basically, your face will be a huge square in the middle of your head, just like the example above. Your eyes, nose, mouth, everything will be inside the block. The rest of you, however, will remain the same. And you’ve probably already noticed but everything will be in black and white. There will be no color on the screen whatsoever!
