One free app makes the difference between video chats with buttons and a party.


Sarah Tew / CNET

Thanks to the coronavirus I spend much of my day with Zoom to keep in touch with colleagues and friends. I also spend way too much time figuring out the best possible zoom background . This week, I came across a free app that has broken open my world and made me obsessed with transforming my looks from everything into a beautiful woman (I'm a stubble man) to something that coughs up Hades – horns and stuff.

Makes that trick of changing background pretty boring afterwards.

Zoom has been in the news for positive and negative reasons. It has helped people to attend virtually their graduation but some schools have banned it for security reasons . " Zoombombing" has become a thing and, in general, there are privacy issues with the video chat service.

How do you take things to a higher level? With a free app called Snap Camera. Snap Camera has been around since 2018, and you can essentially add Snapchat-style filters to video conferencing apps like Zoom.

You can use it to transform yourself from this:

After.

Or how about this …

… Miaow?

But definitely don't do this.

This has been cracked.

Yes, those are my teeth attached to the yolk of a digitally cracked egg. Terrifying.

Installing Snap Camera is quite easy. First download the application here and go through the installation process.

Once active, you will see a selection of filters that you may be able to choose from.

Plenty of Options to Scare Your Colleagues.

Once that's good, you can mess around with the settings in Zoom to make it work there. On a Mac, it's as easy as going to Preferences, clicking video and selecting Snap Camera from the camera's drop-down list. It is a similar process on a PC.

It's as easy as cracking an egg.

As long as you keep the Snap Camera app open, the filters work. Keep in mind that this is a can of worms. Surprise your colleagues in one meeting and I guarantee everyone in the next meeting will look like this:

Adding a whole new dimension to isolating beard growth.

If that's a future you're comfortable with, enjoy it.

Snap Camera also works with Skype and Microsoft Teams . You can even use it while streaming on Twitch.
