How do I use AR Effects during a call on my Portal TV?

This article applies to Portal TV  

See Portal article  

You can use AR Effects like filters and masks during a call on your Portal TV. If you use AR Effects, they will only appear on the person who added the Effect. Shared Effects appear on everyone, but are only available when everyone on the call is using Portal.

To use AR Effects or Shared Effects during a call:

  1. Press Select to expose the call menu.
  2. Select and then select Effects or Shared Effects.
  3. Select the Effect you'd like to try.

If Shared Effects don't appear during a call:

Make sure everyone on the call is using a Portal. You can also try updating the software on each Portal.
