With its over 1200 million users in mid-2022, Instagram is one of the most successful social networks in the world. This is largely due to the huge number of improvements included in each update where we can find new filters every day, such as putting a cartoon face. In addition, it should be noted that the application gives us the possibility of making video calls or even conducting surveys for our audience, so all these improvements are very interesting for the user. However, while it works quite well, that doesn't mean the app isn't bug-free, in fact, one of the most frustrating ones is whenInstagram filters do not appear, who by right claim to frequently use this social network on our Smartphones.



But don't worry, today in The Power Of The Green Android we are going to give you a series of tips that you can follow in case they do not appear.

Why am I not getting my filters on Instagram 2022?

Basically for sure it is not known why Instagram filters do not appear in some situations. However, the origin of this problem is usually due to these situations:

  • You have a iPhone with iOS 7 o previous versions or a phone Android 5.0 o previous versions.
  • Update your mobile to the latest version available.
  • Your cell phone doesn't have facial recognition.
  • The application needs to be updated.
  • Activate all Instagram permissions.
  • You need to update your Android system's Webview to the latest version.
  • You have problems with the application cache.

What to do if my Instagram filters don't load? How do I fix it? 2022



If you watched where instagram filters are searched and not displayed, don't worry during this tutorial, I will give you a series of tips that you should follow to fix this incident.

Remember that if one Ā«tipĀ» doesn't work, move on to the next one to try to fix the problem as soon as possible.

Reboot the device

The first thing to do if you wonder "where are the Instagram filters that don't appear?" is to restart the phone.

It may seem like a bit of a simple fix, but you can't imagine the number of problems that can be fixed with a simple restart. This is because most of the time we don't close background applications for days which can lead to situations where some applications malfunction.

Update Instagram to the latest version

Always keep Instagram updated to the latest version available in the Google Play Store, for this you just have to follow these steps.

  • Go to Play Store > Select your profile picture > Manage apps and applications > Manage.

And let's see if we have Instagram updates available.

Update WebView to the latest version

In some cases, not having the component Webview updated to the latest version  can cause  arrest of some apps like TikTok, Brawl Stars or Gmail. To update it, I recommend you follow the instructions in these 2 tutorials:

  • The Google application has stopped working.
  • MSA is still not working.

Attiva i permessi su Instagram

Another reason why i Instagram filters are not available is that you have not given the necessary permissions to the application to work properly. Remember that Instagram must have access to your storage and camera permissions to be able to use it normally, so to activate them we will have to do the following.



We enter Ā«SettingsĀ» on our smartphone.

So let's log in Ā«ApplicationsĀ».

In Ā«ApplicationsĀ» we search for Ā«InstagramĀ», once identified we enter inside.

In this screen call Ā«About the applicationĀ» we will have to insert Ā«PermissionsĀ».

We accept camera permissions (as they are required for some of your filters) and storage.

We leave each permission marked as Ā«Allow only if the application is in useĀ».

Clear data and cache

Another reason why i Instagram filters they might do not load it is due to cache issues which can cause other more serious problems like crashing or constantly closing the application.


To fix this incident we need to access the "Settings" of our mobile phone as shown in the following image.

So let's log in Ā«ApplicationsĀ».

In Ā«ApplicationsĀ» we search for Ā«InstagramĀ», once identified we enter inside.

In this screen call Ā«About the applicationĀ» we will have to enter "Archiving".

Here we go all the way down and do the following:

  1. We empty the cache.
  2. We delete the data.

Upon deletion of data, a message will appear informing us that we will lose all information. Don't worry, nothing is lost, all this action is just that leave Instagram as it came from the factory the first time you installed it on your device. Only that you will have to log in again with your account and that's it.


Uninstall and reinstall Instagram

Another possible solution if Instagram doesn't show filters would be to uninstall the application and reinstall it again.

Factory reset phone

Finally, if after all these steps Instagram filters still don't appear, another thing you could do is to factory reset your phone.

Remember this will erase all data on your mobile, so it is not a highly recommended solution, although if you want to go ahead, make a backup copy of all devices.

And these are all the steps you need to follow if i Instagram filters don't work today 2022. If you have any questions you can always leave me a comment and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
