Here's how you filter the lawyer cat Zoom with those asking about

If you were somewhere near the internet this week, you undoubtedly saw a viral video of a simulated case in Texas that wouldn't have been really remarkable—except that a prosecutor inadvertently switched on a filter that turned his face into an adorable kitten and couldn't find out how to turn it off.

I'm alive here. I'm not a cat,"I'm here live. I'm not a cat," "I can see that, "I can see that.

Footage of a Texan lawyer denying that he was a cat when he appeared on a live call with a feline filter caught the national imagination and became a viral success fast. Then "How do I get that filter?" was what everyone needed to hear.  Some wondered whether deep-fake technology was used because the filter looked advanced.

Although this was clearly an error, you may be wondering how to turn yourself into a kitten to jazz up your next video meeting (or check out a number of other animals or effects). We've always got you protected if you don't happen to have an old Dell machine around. Here's how to set up your Snap Camera and use your next Zoom Filter.

1. Download the free Windows or Mac Snap Camera app for (just make sure you read the terms and conditions first). They'll ask for permission to use the microphone and camera.

2. Open the app and a number of "lenses" or filters can be encountered to browse though. At the top of the app, where you can see it superimposed over your forehead, anything you press on will show.

3. Go to the search bar for lenses and type "kitten" (or something else you would like to try).

4. Scan through the numerous choices and choose the feline that speaks the most to you.

5. To connect your new filter to Zoom, open the Zoom app (you may have to restart it if it was already open while Snap Camera was downloading). 

6. In Zoom, go to Settings > Video > Camera, and from the drop-down menu, select Snap Camera. You should see your face with the filter you selected appears in the preview. 

7. Start or join a Zoom meeting. Your face will appear as a kitten, or whatever filter you selected.

Only go back to Settings > Video > Camera to turn the filters off, and pick your normal camera again. If you want to be really fancy, on Snap Camera, you can even make your own lenses.
