Snap has announced that it will shut down its camera application for Mac and PCs on January 25
The parent company of Snapchat, Snap stated that on January 25, it would stop supporting its camera program for computers running Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. According to The Verge, Snap Camera gives users the ability to apply filters to their faces while they are participating in video conference conversations.
On the support page for Snap Camera, the firm made the announcement of the move and stated that the application will “no longer be available to use or download” by the end of this month. The technology company did add, however, that users are still able to use the Snapchat filters on the web version of the application.
According to the report, when Snap Camera was originally made available to users in 2018, the firm touted it as a tool that could be used by users to spice up their Twitch streams. During this time, Snap had said a month earlier that its soon-to-be-released augmented reality (AR) feature will help creators make money from their work.
The company said this at an event for developers called Lensfest. It said that it had been working with a number of producers to make lenses that include digital items that can be bought and downloaded.
