GoPro as a Webcam

This GoPro cameras primary function is to be used as an action camera. There are several steps that will configure it for use as a webcam. In our testing, the GoPro would only function reliably while using the Teams web app on Google Chrome. It worked on both a Windows PC and a Mac.

This feature will NOT work on the desktop version of Teams or with any other browser.

Step 1: Install and launch the GoPro Webcam app

PART A) Download GoPro Webcam desktop utility and install the software on your computer.

PART B) The GoPro icon will now appear on your status bar.
