(INSTAGRAM/CNN) - Facebook is adding new selfie filters to its popular Instagram app, like the ones you see on Snapchat.

Instagram users now have eight graphic filters they can superimpose onto pictures and videos, including furry koala ears and tiaras.

But this isn't the first time Instagram has added features that are similar to Snapchat's.

Last August, the app gave users the ability to add "stories" to their profile. These uploads disappear after 24 hours, but can be seen by anyone on your friends list.

Instagram also announced they'll be rolling out a new "rewind" feature that lets you play videos in reverse.
