The Teleport Filter (TikTok) is a cool way to experience what teleportation may be like.
Teleportation might be possible in reality also, in the far future if we are being really optimistic but you can experience the next best thing which is the effect of teleportation on TikTok.
This filter allows users to ‘teleport’ or rather disappear and appear at a new place. While it may seem simple, the filter has gotten immense popularity. As a matter of fact, millions of people have used the effect, and even more, have viewed the videos made from it.
It has also been used in a more era-appropriate way when people teleport from present-day earth to an apocalyptic plague-stricken version of the earth that doesn’t seem too far off of what is possible.
Teleport Filter On TikTok: Explained
This filter allows users to change the background of their video while a “sci-fi like” array of beams covers the video creator during the transition or during the teleportation. Variations of the use of the filter have popped up everywhere as reported by this source.
Further, the filter has an option to use any background you want which makes it more interesting when users show their creativity. Like people teleporting from modern Los Angeles to the 1800-era Southern USA while Old Town Road plays in the background is just the tip of the iceberg.
Some celebrities like Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown have also taken part in the challenge which added to the appeal towards the sci-fi crowd.

Due to the interesting nature of the filter, it has gathered immense popularity. As a matter of fact, the filter’s hashtag (#teleport) has amassed a staggering 2.7 Billion as of August 2020. The timing of the filter could not have been better as people were stuck at home in quarantine when it blew up.
People made all sorts of videos imagining where they would go to next right from the comfort of their home. From more common travel destinations to sarcastically commenting on 2020 by ‘teleporting’ to a restaurant, this trend really was made for the pandemic.
