This potato filter is famous these days. A woman who turned herself into one during a meeting became viral as a meme because she did not know how to turn it off. Don't worry; we will not let that happen to you; we will teach you how to turn this filter on and off in a meeting on Microsoft Teams. So, keep reading this guide to find out how to do it.

Steps to turning yourself into a potato in a Microsoft Teams meeting

The first thing that you need to do is to download Snapchat's Snap camera on your device. This camera is available for Windows 10 and Mac OS devices. Open your browser, Google Snap Camera, and download it from there. You will not need to create an account on Snapchat to use this. After the download process is finished, install that camera, open it, and head over to the first step of this guide.

  • Once you have opened the Snap Camera on your device, you will be able to see some filters that you can use. Find the potato filter, among others, and click on it. The filter will be replaced right away.
  • Now, head over to your Teams app and enter Settings. You will need to change your default camera to Snap camera so that this can work. Open your Team Settings to continue.
  • Now, find the Devices option on the left sidebar of the app and click on that to open up some more settings and sections.
  • You might have to scroll down for a little while until you spot the Camera section there. Click on it to expand the settings of the camera.
  • You should be able to see that your default camera is there. Click on the little arrow facing down to expand the drop-down menu and change your main camera.
  • From the drop-down menu, find the Snap Camera option and click on it. The preview should be visible right under that. And, if you see yourself as a potato in the ground, it means that this worked.
  • And that is, basically, it. Don't forget to save your changes before you exit that window.

If you want to turn the Snap Camera off, you must repeat steps 1-5. But, when you open that drop-down menu, select your regular camera so you can switch the filter off and the Snap camera.

If you are attending a meeting and have your Snap Camera and filters turned on, you can change the filters anytime you want. You must open up the Snap Camera again and find another filter you like. The change will be visible right away in the meeting.

Have in mind…

Please keep in mind that if you want to look professional and mature in some very important conference call meetings, we do not recommend using these filters. It is for the best if you use them in some private Team meeting calls rather than in a call where people will find you immature and not funny.

Also, we wanted to let you know that you can use this filter and many others like this one on other platforms. You can use it on Google Meet, Zoom, or other applications that support the Snap camera.
