Snapchat introduced its voice filter feature in the summer of 2017, and its popularity hasn't waned one bit over the years. With four available options, users can choose between modifying their voice to sound like a chipmunk, a bear, a robot, or an alien.

So, how do you use the bear voice filter on Snapchat?

Using voice filters is a breeze. First off, you will have to decide which filter suits your clip the best. For a high-pitched, adorable effect, opt for the chipmunk. If you would prefer a monotonous mechanical sound, the robot is your best bet. 

For times when only a garbled, high-pitched sound will do, go for the alien. And, of course, there's the bear — a more well-rounded, lower-pitched filter that works equally well with humorous and spooky Snaps.

To begin the whole process, you will want to make a voice recording. Tap on the record button in the middle of the screen — or switch on the AssistiveTouch feature to go at it without hands — and say whatever is on your mind. 

In the left corner, you will find the Sound button. You will want to give it a gentle tap. Next up, you will want to select the right voice filter. 

The bear voice filter is the second from the top — conveniently sandwiched between the chipmunk and the robot. Once you have selected the right filter, all you have left to do is share the story with your friends.

To make the Snap all the more memorable, you can also opt for a bear filter. To do this, you will want to tap on the smiley face button next to the record button. Next up, press the Lens Subscription button at the bottom of the screen, and search for the bear filter. 

Select your chosen filter, and you're good to go.

Snapchat is about to introduce a range of new features.

According to Digital Trends, the company teased the arrival of a wide range of new features during its annual Snap Partner Summit on June 11. 

As the outlet reveals, the interface is about to undergo a revamp. Tired of searching for the right filters? The process is about to become a lot easier, as an in-built voice recognition feature will allow users to speak directly to the app. 

Another new feature will allow users to post content in response to specific themes. Akin to the way hashtags function on Instagram stories, Topics will enable users to broaden their outreach and connect with new audiences. 

In addition, they will be able to comment on stories or use stickers to do so. Meanwhile, Scan is an image recognition tool that can be used to identify plants and much more.
