    @ForumChris, how would you test push-to-device CameraKit lenses using the Web SDK?

    Thanks for posting on the forum! At the time of this writing, push-to-device is not ready for the Web SDK. You'll have to publish lens, add to lens folder, grab lens group id, and add to integration to test.

    But know that our eng team is cooking up a couple things for a more efficient process / better experience! Stay tuned... B)
