GoPro Just Released a Free App That Turns Your Hero 8 Into a Webcam

GoPro has just released a new MacOS app (Windows coming soon) that makes it much easier to use the Hero 8 Black action camera as a webcam without plugging in any sort of additional hardware. All you need is your GoPro, the free ‘GoPro Webcam’ software, and a USB cable.

The beta software is already fully compatible with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Discord and Bluejeans, and if you’re using Chrome you can use it in Webex, Skype, Facebook Rooms, Messenger and Slack as well. Once you have the software installed and your GoPro connected, an icon will appear in your status bar up top, which gives you the option to change resolutions, mirror or flip your image, and preview the results coming out of the camera.

As a bonus, if you connect the camera via a USB-C port with sufficient power delivery, you can actually power the GoPro from your computer and save your battery.

Check out the video below for a quick step-by-step breakdown that shows you how to set up the Hero 8 Black for webcam use:
