On the website you need to check the box to familiarize yourself with the rules and that you are not a robot. Email can be omitted if you don’t want to receive various notifications and mailing lists. Then select your computer’s operating system and download for Mac or Windows.

Filters for zoom

Using a filter during an online meeting can often cause a laptop or computer to freeze. Before joining a scheduled meeting, set up a trial meeting and see how Snap Camera works when streaming with Zoom.
