Snapchat has released its latest desktop desktop software, Snap Camera. Focused on bringing their popular Snapchat lenses to Mac and PC, Snap Camera can be used for various platforms like Skype, Twitch, Google Hangouts and more.
Whoosh! Screen Cleaner
Released in a press release today (via The Verge ), Snap Camera users provide access to 250,000 AR lenses, including company classics, as well as those made by the Lens Creator community via Lens Studio.  The free Snap Camera app is now available for both Mac and PC. How it works:
To get started, download the Snap Camera app on your desktop device. Snap Camera syncs with the camera connected to your computer and works with any of your favorite video formats and apps. This means that you have lenses while recording your next Youtube video, or even when streaming with apps like Skype, Google Hangouts, and OBS. We have also developed a custom Snap Camera integration just for streaming on Twitch.
Interestingly, Snap Camera is not designed with its own interface like Apple's Photo Booth, but is rather designed as more of a plugin.  As noted by TechCrunch Snap Camera will not work with FaceTime, even if Snap would.
An important app that does not support Snap Camera is Apple's FaceTime. Why? "I do not know. Apple did not comment on it. Believe me, we tried," Pilipski says.
It's likely to be down to security and privacy issues. Check out the video below for more about Snap Camera.
