Just one day after publishing its earnings report revealing the loss of 2 million users in the last quarter, Snapchat is taking steps to nullify the effects.
Snapchat has launched its desktop app named Snap Camera that brings Snapchat filters to Windows and MacBook. The application integrates with other apps such as YouTube, Twitch, Hangouts, and Skype, and allows you to add filters during video calls or while live streaming a game on Twitch.
Users need to install the application on the system and select it as the third-party camera application to add Snap Lenses. The app allows you to search for lenses using keywords and you can save four favorite lenses as well.
The app does not require you to log in with a Snapchat account and works without it. That’s something unexpected and refreshing.
In addition to their desktop app, Snap has launched lenses for Twitch streams that allow the streamers to add and swap lenses while streaming games. These lenses will be based on the characters from popular games such as PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds, League of Legends, Overwatch and World of Warcraft. Users can scan the code displayed during game streaming to unlock the lenses shown during the broadcast.
You can refer to their official guide for integrating Twitch with the newly launched Snap Camera app.
