Here's How To Get The 'Harry Potter' Instagram Filters For A Magical Story

The current AR filter trend doesn't look like it's slowing down anytime soon. Harry Potter fans who are dying to see which character or house they are should get ready to share the outcome on the 'Gram. Here's how to get the Harry Potter Instagram filters, so you can get sorted into your Hogwarts House.

There are a couple of different Harry Potter filters making their way around Instagram, but both are perfectly magical. One matches you with one of the four Hogwarts Houses: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin. Created by @arnopartissimo — the same Instagram creator who made the Disney filter for your Stories — the "Which Wizard House" filter puts you underneath the sorting hat before assigning you a house. The other Harry Potter filter is from @juliaroga and simply titled "Harry Potter." The "Harry Potter" filter is like other "Which Character" filters on Instagram. You'll be matched up with one of the characters from HP, including Dobby, Hagrid, Luna Lovegood, Harry Potter, and more. To use either of these HP filters in your Stories, just hold to record a selfie video in your Instagram Camera and watch the cards scroll above your head before matching you up with a character or house.

Get the Harry Potter Filters From Your Friends' Stories

  1. Cycle through friends' Stories to find someone using the Harry Potter filters.

  3. Tap it and choose from the following menu options: "Try It," "Save Effect," "Send To...," or "More."

Receive The Filter From A Friend Via DM

Sometimes you see a filter in Stories and miss the chance to add it to your Instagram Camera. Ask a friend to send it to you in a DM by clicking on a Harry Potter filter in their Stories Camera, selecting "Send To," and choosing you as the recipient.

  1. Now that it's in your DMs, click on the filter image.
  2. Next, select the save icon (down arrow) to save it directly to your Stories camera or click "Try It" on the bottom left to test it out before saving.
