Have you heard that Microsoft has teamed up with Snapchat to bring more fun to video calls on its Teams app?

That's right, now you can add Snapchat Lenses to your Teams video calls. With over 20 Lenses to choose from, including a cat on your head or virtual sunglasses on your face, you can add some personality to your video chats.

The best part? You don't need to download a separate app or add-on, as Microsoft has integrated Snapchat's AR Lenses directly into the video effects section of the Teams client. Microsoft has used Snap's Camera Kit SDK to bring these Snapchat Lenses to Teams, and they've also added them to their Flip education platform.

So, if you're looking to add some fun to your work video calls, check out the new Snapchat Lenses in Microsoft Teams! In this article, we will guide you on how to use Snapchat Lenses on Microsoft Teams.
