Exciting News - Introduction of Snapchat Lenses in Microsoft Teams

From a shower of hearts to a warm embrace from a sloth or a chicken resting on your head; these aren't just scenes from an eccentric party anymore. They can be a part of your next work meeting too, through the newly introduced Snapchat Lenses in the versatile communication platform.

You can now bring fun and vibrancy to your work meetings! Pave the way for the Sunglasses, Bear in Love, Cat on Head, and even the Sunset Lenses. Speaking of meetings, did you know that 78% of positive memories from them come from video calls? So why not leave a lasting imprint with these interesting Lenses in your next gathering?

The highlighting charm of Snapchat Lenses is its seamless integration into the popular communication platform. You don't need to download anything new or add a separate app; everything is ready for you to explore and try.

Teams - An Entertaining Workplace for Everyone

The platform in discussion serves as an advanced and modern workplace for almost 280 million people across the globe. And it just leveled up its entertainment quotient with Snapchat Lenses integration, thanks to Snap's Camera Kit.

Lenses allow users to add augmented reality (AR) effects to video calls, thereby enlivening human interaction during meetings. AR overlays our physical surroundings with virtual objects & information, which does wonders in enhancing our perception and interaction with the world. As AR utilizes cameras, sensors, and displays that are already in use for video conferencing, the integration with the popular communication platform is seamless.

Interested in spicing up your next call? Follow these easy steps:

  • Click “Video Effects”
  • Choose “More Video Effects”
  • Scroll down and select “Snapchat” under “Filters”
  • Explore and select your favorite Lens
  • Finally, click “Join now”

Selecting a Filter after Joining a Meeting

Forgot to apply a filter before joining a meeting? No worries!

  • Click “More…” at the top of your meeting screen
  • Select “Video Effects”
  • Choose "Snapchat” under “Filters”
  • Scroll down and select your prefered Lens
  • To preview your selection, click “Preview”, or click “Apply” to turn on your selected Lens

Snapchat Lenses - More Than Just Fun

Lenses are an intriguing means to express your personality or mood - from cheerful to amusing, and everything in between. Utilize these virtual effects to add spark and energy to your virtual work environment.

They're not just about the fun element; use it to break the ice, ignite some creativity, or even bring laughter in a rather dull scenario. And for those preferring to keep their feed effect-free, opt not to use them. Test out the “smooth look” filter for a polished look, without the involvement of any animations.

This exciting addition is sure to kick-start your work day with a bit of sunshine, cloud freckles, or a sparkling aura on your next Teams meeting. Try them out today!
*Available for Teams for Work customers only.

Currently, the feature is only available for the "classic" users, but will be made available for New ones by year-end. Keep yourself updated!
