More filters are expected to be added in the future, according to the company.

These lenses range from virtual backgrounds that place you in imaginative sets and locations, to AR effects that turn you into a pirate or give you animal ears, to customizable filters like sepia tones or pixelations that help make match your EpocCam video stream to your style and personality.

Fortunately, integration with AR Snap Lenses is available for both the free and paid versions of the EpocCam app, which costs $ 7.99. EpocCam also offers options to add blurry or chromatic backgrounds when using your iPhone as a webcam. The app is compatible with popular video conferencing and video streaming platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and OBS Studio.
