Use the same video filters

use the same video filters in Google meet,microsoft team,zoom.

Every video calling software lets you use its own set of backgrounds and filters to modify your face or your background.

You have to select a different one every time you connect to a different video calling service. It be a lot easier if you could access the same set of video filters and effects for any of the video conference tools you used.

The good news is that you can do this if you install the Snap Camera app for Windows and macOS. Let’s take a look at how you can tap into the same set of filters or ‘lenses’ in Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

It’s okay if you use other third-party video conference solutions because the basic steps remain the same. Let’s look at how this can be done on a Windows machine.

What you need:

1.Windows PC

2.Snap Camera installed from https://snapcamera.snapchat.com/

How to Use Snap Camera:

The overall method is the same irrespective of the video calling service: You have to change the video source setting to “Snap Camera”. The lenses you download and select will appear in the video conferencing app or service.
