Instagram recently updated its app to include support for emoji in hashtags. The update also includes three new photo filters.

The new filters are called Lark, Reyes, and Juno, and are focused on enhancing outdoor photography.

"Inspired by weekend adventures outdoors, Lark, Reyes and Juno are a family of modern, subtle filters that brighten and enhance your photos in refined, beautiful ways. Lark desaturates reds while punching up blues and greens to bring your landscapes to life. Reyes brings a dusty, vintage look to your moments. And finally, Juno tints cool tones green while making warm tones pop and whites glow for vibrant photos of people," Instagram wrote on its blog.

The company added that with support for emoji in hashtags, searching and tagging photos with emoji will help improve photo discoverability.

Instagram for iOS version 6.11.0 is available today in Apple's App Store, and these updates will be available today in the latest version of Instagram for Android, 6.20.0, in Google Play.
