Instagram is marrying two of the most iconic modern-day necessities, the hashtag and the emoji by introducing 'Emoji hashtags' in their latest update.

The update will see users able to place the hashtag symbol in front of an emoji, which will then become a searchable term in the same way hashtags do.

Users will be able to search the site using emojis, which was previously only available to search user bios that contained the quirky icons.

Instagram is also introducing three new filters, Reyes, Juno and Lark.

Users can still pick and choose which filters they want to show in their app, ensuring it doesn't get too cluttered.
