Best Music Lenses & Filters

Snapchat is a popular social app that’s used by millions of people worldwide. Released in 2011, it allows users to send photos and short clips to friends. There’s a catch, though—these “snaps”, as they’re called, will disappear seconds after being viewed. Ultimately, it’s thanks to this feature that the platform has grown as much as it has.

Now that we know more about what it is, let’s go over some of its features. That’s right, there are a number of things that you can do with the app. For instance, you can create custom stories, edit your snap with a toolkit, share your location on a map, or play games. Really, the list goes on and on.

On this page, we’ll be focusing on their lenses and filters. Surely, you’ve heard of them before? If anything, it’s what they’re known for nowadays. They allow users to augment their snap with various special effects. For example, some will change your surroundings while others will distort your appearance. There are also geofilters—effects that are available only at specific locations. At the end of the day, the “effect” depends on the filter that you’re using.

Top Music Snapchat Lenses & Filters for 2019

Who doesn’t like music? Why not add some sound to your snap with one of these filters?

1. Musical Snowflakes Snapchat Filter

Are the holidays coming up? How about adding some music to your snap? Here’s a fun filter that’ll let you do that! Once unlocked, the instructions will come up on the screen. Basically, you want to time it so that you tap on the corresponding snowflake (make sure it’s the right color) when the one on the top is in the red square.

Do that for all of the snowflakes that come up and you’ll be able to “play” the song! Not a fan of Jingle Bells? No problem—there are a few tunes that you can choose from. To switch, just tap on the name of the song. Aside from Jingle Bells, there’s also Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer! Which one will you be playing?

2. Crab Rave Music Snapchat Lens


How about adding some rave music to your snap? I bet it’d liven things up! Interested? Then be sure to give this filter a try. Activate it and a crab will appear on your screen (assuming that you’re using the back camera)! Don’t take him for just a regular crab, though—he’s a dancer!

For the actual song, you’ll want to turn up your volume. How else would you be able to listen to it? Oh, did I also mention that you can write a custom message with the filter? Once the filter’s activated, a keyboard will come up—simply use that to type in the text! When you’re finished, press the blue button and it will appear on the screen.

3. Disco Headphones Snapcode

Ready for some disco music? Because that’s what you’ll be getting with this filter! Activate it and you’ll get a pair of kitty cat headphones. You know, headphones with cat ears on them? That’s not all, the background will change as well—it’ll be black, with a swirl of rainbow colors. You’ll know what I mean when you see it!

The best part about this filter? It comes with music. How else would you jam? So, be sure to turn on your sound! If anything, it’s the thing that will give your snap that cool vibe. Want to share the tunes with your friends? That’s easy—just record a video!

4. Invincibility Star Music Snapcode

Have you ever played the Mario games? If so, this filter will probably seem familiar. You see, it’ll let you use the “invincibility star” power-up! To activate the effect, all you have to do is tap on the screen (there will be a prompt). Do that, and a certain song will play immediately in the background—I’m sure you’ll recognize it.

As part of the effect, the screen will also change colors every second or so. If you ask me, it really gives it that “power-up vibe”. Want to capture the moment? Then be sure to use the filter for a video! That way, you’ll be able to “get” the music and the animated effects!

5. Flower Pedals With Music Snapcode

Looking for a romantic filter? Look no further. We’ve got just the one for you! Activate it and the screen will be filled with flower pedals. To be more specific, they’ll come down from the ceiling! That’s not all—as part of the effect, there will also be a pinkish overlay! If that’s not romantic, I don’t know what is!

But wait, there’s more to the filter. Can you guess what it is? That’s right, it also comes with background music! Want to listen to the song? Then make sure that your sound is on. As a matter of fact, we recommend that you use the filter for a video—that way, others will be able to enjoy the music too!

6. Sad Violin Music Snapchat Filter

Feeling down? Here’s a filter that you can use to express yourself. What’s the effect, you ask? It’ll add a sad violin track to your snap. If anything, it’s almost like the ones that you hear in tragic movies. Really, it’s interesting how something like that can make the mood instantly!

That’s not the only effect that this filter has, either. You see, it’ll also add a certain overlay to your screen. Check out the example above. As you can see, everything will be in black and white—there will be no color whatsoever. It really adds to the sad vibe if you ask me!

7. Good Morning Kenya Snapcode

What’s your favorite Disney movie? If you answered Lion King, you might want to check out this filter. Can you guess what the effect is? That’s right, it’ll add that song to your snap. You know, Circle of Life? The one that plays when Simba is born at the beginning of the film?

Once the filter is activated, all you need to do is tap on the screen. With that, the song will start to play automatically! Now you can re-create that famous scene from the movie. You can use the front or back camera—whatever you want to capture the moment!

8. U.S. Anthem Snapchat Filter

Feeling patriotic? How about adding the US Anthem to your snap? You see, that’s what you’ll be able to do with this filter! Once you’ve unlocked the effect, you just need to do one thing—tap on the screen. Do that, and the familiar song will start to play in the background.

As you can see in the example image, that’s not the only thing that the filter will do. It’ll also add the US flag to your snap in the form of a semi-transparent overlay! In other words, the flag will appear on top of whatever you point your camera at, whether it’s at your friend or your own face.

9. Jellyfish Jam Snapchat Lens

Do you know what time it is? It’s time for a Jellyfish Jam! It’s exactly what it sounds like—you get to enjoy so come music in the presence of jellyfish! To start, scan the snap code above. The effect will activate immediately! Before you know it, the screen will be flashing different colors. Why, it’s a jam after all!

Remember what we said earlier? There will also be jellyfish. Don’t see any? Move your camera around—you’ll catch a glimpse of them eventually. Don’t they remind you of anything? Yup, they’re the same ones that appear in the Spongebob series! What a coincidence, huh.

10. Piano Man Harmonica Snapcode

Are you familiar with the Piano Man aka Billy Joel? He rose to fame shortly after the release of his signature song, which has the same name. Well, guess what? Now you can incorporate that tune into your snap! That’s what this snap filter will do!

As soon as you activate it, a harmonica rendition of “Piano Man” will start to play. That’s not all, the filter also comes with a monochrome overlay. In other words, everything you point your camera at will be in black and white. Why not check it out for yourself? Just scan the code above to get started!

11. Snap Song Music Video Snapchat Filter

You won’t want to miss out on this filter if you’re a Snapchat fan. Why, it’s a music video of the snap song—a song that’s based on the app itself (yes, someone actually sang about the app)! That’s right, something like that actually exists. Who sang it, I wonder?

What’s neat, though, is that this filter is actually a music video of sorts. Not only will it add the song to your snap, but it comes with several visuals as well! For instance, the lyrics will come up as various graphics on the screen. It’s a little bizarre, but hey, this is Snapchat that we’re talking about!
