Instagram’s Focus Mode Allows Bokeh Effects On Single Camera Phones

It’ll also work with dual-lens models

Envious of all that artificial bokeh that dual-camera equipped phones provide? Well, you can get that too even if you have a single-camera phone, provided you’re using Instagram. The social media service is rolling out a new “Focus” camera mode that’ll apply a software bokeh to the shot once it detects a face in the scene, regardless if your phone is a dual-camera model or not.

The new camera mode works with video and photo, and can be used by either the front or the rear camera. After you’re done shooting, you can apply stickers and effects as normal. The new mode is now rolling out to the iPhone SE, 6S, 6S+, 7, 7+, 8, 8+ and X and select Android devices.
