How to exit Snap Camera filter immediately (even when in a call or meeting)

Snap Camera is an excellent service that lets you place 3D and 2D backgrounds and filters on your webcam feed in various video calling services like Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams and more. You get access to all the Snapchat filters without the need for dedicated extensions for each service.

But these filters can often end up being a nuisance, especially during official calls and meetings. In the rare case, you have Snap Camera enabled during official meetings and calls, there is an easy and efficient way to close it immediately in a matter of seconds. Follow our simple guide to turn off Snap Camera immediately no matter what conference app you may be using.
