Microsoft has partnered up with Snapchat to bring Snapchat filters with the aim of dazzling up Teams video meetings more. This integration adds 26 of Snapchat’s most popular Lenses, among them Bear in Love, Cat on Head, the Sunset Lense, and more.
This new addition has been incorporated into the Microsoft Teams app, as a Teams user you’ll not need to download a separate app or even an add-on to access the Snapchat Lenses. Teams users can find these Snapchat Lenses directly within the video effects section.
Microsoft indicated that:
Lenses allow users to add augmented reality (AR) effects to video calls, bringing livelier human interaction to meetings. AR captures and processes information about our physical environment and then overlays it with virtual objects and information, allowing us to see and experience the world in a different way.
It is worth noting that this feature is limited to Teams for Work users. What’s more, you should also be running on the “classic” Teams version, rather than the recently launched new Teams client that’s in public preview.
