Snapchat has added a new filter in tribute to Prince, who died yesterday at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota aged 57.

As soon as the news of Prince’s death was confirmed, Snapchat launched the feature to enable users to celebrate and mourn one of the most prolific songwriters/performers the world has ever seen. The new “Purple Rain”-themed filter, not to be confused with Snapchat’s line of motion-tracking selfie lenses, showers the user in little droplets of purple rain.

Check out the filter below.
