The application Snapchat is not as popular nowadays as it was before, but it still makes thousands of its products available filters to use in various videoconferencing programs and lives on Facebook, for example. You can turn your hours sitting at your computer into meetings or live streams into much more fun times with Snap Camera, exclusive functionality of the platform.
Learn how to use Snapchat camera in different programs in this guide that Tecmundo has prepared for you.
How to use and configure your Snap Camera
First download and install the program Snap Camera in your computer. When finished, choose a webcam for him to capture your video on the gear icon, which opens the settings.
Then, choose a filter by clicking among those recommended by the program itself or use the search bar “search lenses” to find among a series of options. A good tip is to always mark the filters as favorites so as not to miss them later. Ready! Now just choose where you want to use this huge filter library.
How to use Snapchat filters on Twitch
To use the Snapchat filters on Twitch, you need a specific streaming program, as the platform itself does not have a mechanism to make lives directly for it. In this case, we recommend software such as Streamlabs, Stream Elements or OBS Studio, which we will teach in this guide.
After logging in with your Twitch account to start a broadcast, you’ll always need to select the Snap Camera like “Video capture device” – which usually has a camera icon to identify it – instead of your webcam. Leave the application Snap Camera open to switch between filters, automatically changing in transmission.
How to use Snapchat filters in Google Meet
Before entering a room created in the Google Meet, you can now configure your camera at the three points at the top right of your camera and in “settings”. Enter the video options and select Snap Camera how to capture your image. Enter the meeting normally, already with your camera filter.
It is also possible to configure when you are already in a meeting. Just access the settings, now with the three dots located in the lower right corner of the screen.
How to use Snapchat filters in Zoom
O zoom is more of a video call option where you can use Snapchat filters. With both programs downloaded and open, the easiest way to use the Zoom Snap Camera is to configure directly during the call, in the “Video” icon located in the lower left corner of the screen and choosing the option of the filters application.
However, you can also leave it pre-configured on the main page of the program, accessing the settings through the gear icon, where you can also find the video functions.
How to use Snapchat filters on Skype
To use the Snapchat filters on Skype, just configure directly in the options.
On the home screen, to the right of your profile picture, you will find three dots. By clicking on it, you can access the settings, where the Audio and Video options are. Right at the beginning, it is already possible to find your camera and the device that is configured. Switch to Snap Camera and enjoy the filters.
How to use Snapchat filters in OBS Studio
To use the Snapchat filters in OBS Studio and make your lives more fun, you need to make some settings. Start by creating a scene, that is, a set of elements that will appear on your live, such as alerts, your camera and the game you are playing, for example.
After creating your first scene, you need to add a new photo inside the scene with the “+” and choose the option “Video capture device”. Confirm and, within the available options, choose Snap Camera to use your filters in recordings and lives.
How to use filters in Facebook lives?
If you are already a Facebook content creator and want to implement your lives with filters, the settings are made directly on your software encoder.
Just like the Twitch and OBS Studio tutorials that we mentioned in this guide, all you need to do is use your webcam as the source of the image in the program Snap Camera and change the source of your webcam in your broadcast program.
Among the sources configured within the live scene in the encoder, add with the “+” a new video capture device, if you haven’t already. Then select Snap Camera and start selecting the filters in the program itself Snapchat to change your live.
