Snap Camera is a freshly-launched desktop app that adds Snapchat Lenses to webcam feeds for vlogging or Twitch streams. Like all similar things Snap, it relies on facial mapping to super-impose a range of effects on a video's subject. Snap Camera is available for download now

Snapchat has released Snap Camera, a desktop app to add Snapchat Lenses to the content filmed with a webcam. Therefore, YouTubers and game streamers can now use Snapchat filters, presuming they would want to do that. 

Snap Camera has been developed in partnership with Twitch. It is intended to add various adaptive effects to the subject of streams or vlogs. These creators can choose one of thousands of Lenses in order to add an extra dimension to their work.

This new app may have come just in time, as Snapchat has recently been reported as experiencing a downturn in popularity even as it moves into profitability. Now, however, a whole new sector of users can be a devil or a panting dog while streaming their game. If that is their kind of thing.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
