By now, you’ve probably seen the viral tweet about the woman who turned herself into a potato during a Teams meeting and couldn’t turn the filter off again. Here’s how you can make yourself a potato in your next meeting using Snap Camera.
In case you haven’t seen this story, here’s the original tweet.

We wouldn’t recommend doing this in a professional video conference, but if you do want to look like a potato when you’re in a Teams meeting—for some reason—this is how.
To look like a potato, you’ll need a filter, in this case, SnapChat’s Snap Camera. Download and install the program on your Windows 10 PC or Mac. You don’t need a Snapchat account, but Snap will ask for your email address before allowing you to download the file. Once it’s installed, open up the application.
Note: Although the viral tweet and this guide is for Microsoft Teams, you can use Snap Camera and the potato filter in your next Google Meet, Zoom, or other video meetings.
By default, Snap Camera uses the “Matzo Ball” filter. Click on the “Potato” filter to get that earthy look.
