Snap Camera by Lens Studio lets you tap into the massive library of Snapchat AR filters and apply them to other live streams and web call apps. That way, you can customize your appearance and play around during Zoom, MS Teams or Skype calls.
Many available options
This free desktop app works on Windows and Mac. The basic principle is straightforward. Like Webcamoid, it lets you apply filters to your videos.
However, with this app, you get access to lenses, the AR filters from Snapchat. Plus, you'll find some original ones developed by Lens Creators for this tool.
Snap Camera comes with a wide array of potential uses. You don't need a Snapchat account to take advantage of its filters. Like with ManyCam, the majority of apps that use your webcam work with this program.
You can put it to action in combination with the most popular streaming platforms such as Twitch. It also works with more business-oriented web call applications like Zoom, Skype, and Google Hangouts.
Once you install this program, it's time to use it with other apps. They should automatically recognize Snap Camera, which you'll choose as your default webcam. Note that, if the other app was already running, you need to restart it first.
A variety of lenses will show up below your image on the webcam. Click on the one you wish to use, and it will seamlessly apply to your video. For easier access, you can favorite lenses by tapping the star icon at the top of the tile or set up hotkeys.
The library of lenses kept growing and surpassed the likes of YouCam because Snap Camera accepts user submissions. Lens Studio has all the tools necessary for making one. Plus, when your proposal passes, you can share lenses with your friends.
A fun utility
Overall, Snap Camera is a fun tool to spice up your boring days of web meetings. It finally brings the complexity and the sheer number of filters to PC—which is a novelty—and it works seamlessly across devices.
