This is Microsoft's second integration with Camera Kit. Microsoft has also used Camera Kit to integrate Snap AR into Flip, Microsoft's video learning platform where teachers can post topic prompts to encourage video discussions among students. Since adding Snap AR to their Flip web experience, there has been a 60% increase in students and teachers creating videos.
