How to Use (and Remove) Meeting Filters


An adorable cat filter is purr-fectly appropriate for a Zoom session with family and friends, but what happens when you join your next meeting as a furry feline and want to quickly regain your human form?

We’re here to answer all your questions about using filters, whether you want to know how to become a cat in your next Zoom meeting, and perhaps more importantly, how to remove your filter when the situation calls for it.

How to use native Zoom filters

Zoom has a bunch of free filters to make meetings fun. You can wear a pizza hat or a crown of flowers, a pirate eye patch or bunny ears — and it’s easy to select and switch filters depending on your mood (and audience).

In a meeting, simply click the up arrow next to the Stop Video icon and select Choose Video Filter. Click on different filters to try them on for size! You can also turn on video filters when you’re not in a meeting.

How to use third-party filters

Third-party integrations like Snap Camera give you even more options to have fun with filters. Here’s how to get started (note that these instructions may differ slightly depending on the application you’re using).

  1. Follow instructions to download and install the third-party software, and make sure you have the latest version of the Zoom desktop client, too. (Please note that by installing third-party software, you may have to agree to third-party terms.)
  2. On the Zoom desktop client, click your profile picture at the top right corner of the screen and select Settings to open the Settings window.
  3. Click Video in the left panel.
  4. Under Camera, click the drop down menu and select the third-party app as your camera.

How to remove filters

Maybe you’re arguing a case in virtual court or giving an important presentation, and you’d rather not do so as a cat. There are few different ways to remove your filter:

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
