Instagram just got a whole lot more expressive. Now you can add emoji hashtags to your posts, as well as gussy up your photos with new filters.

Instagram updated their iOS and Android apps to include the emojis when using hashtags. This means you can search posts using the emojis.

According to the company’s blog post:
You can also now use emoji in your hashtags. Over the past few years, emoji have become part of a universal visual language. And just as we share photos and videos, we use emoji to communicate emotions and feelings in ways that anyone can understand, regardless of language or background. With emoji hashtags, you can discover even more by adding them to your own photos and videos, searching them on the Explore page and tapping on them when you see them in captions.
The emojis are also part of a larger update to Instagram. They have also added three new filters to the app. That makes eight filters total, five of which were introduced in December. Instagram also stated that they planned on bringing users even more filters to use in the future.

About the new filters, Instagram’s post says:
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.
