And since it’s customizable, you can design your Nametag with different colors, themes, selfies, pictures, and emojis to make it more personalized.
“To scan someone’s nametag, you can either swipe right into the camera, hover over the nametag and hold down on your screen, or enter the camera by tapping ‘Scan a nametag’ when viewing your own.”
