Snap’s New Chrome Extension Brings Back The Fun Of AR Lenses

Snap has rolled out a new Chrome extension that brings back the popular augmented reality (AR) Lens feature previously available through the separate Snap Camera app. The Snapchat Camera for Chrome extension enables users to overlay Snap’s AR Lenses on their webcam video feed during video calls and live streams.

“Elevate your webcam experience with Snap AR Lenses. Whether you’re in professional meetings, catching up with friends, or live streaming, our extension brings the creativity of Snap AR Lenses directly to your webcam,” the company stated on its website.

The Snap Camera app, which allowed users to apply AR effects during video calls, was discontinued in January 2022 as part of broader cost-cutting measures at the company. The new Chrome extension restores that functionality.

With the extension, users can choose from a selection of Snap’s popular AR Lens effects, such as virtual costumes and animated characters, to overlay on their webcam video. The extension also supports custom Lenses created by users in Snap’s Lens Studio desktop app.

The Snapchat Camera for Chrome extension is currently available as a public preview release for desktop Chrome browsers.
