Now you can use your iPhone 13 Pro as Mac webcam in Safari, FaceTime; Here’s how to
Do the webcams on Apple Mac devices leave you disappointed? It’s true that the Macbook webcam is poor. However, it seems like you don’t need to worry anymore as there is a solution. Yes, the poor quality of Mac’s webcam can be fixed by using the Camo app. With a new update it can be used for FaceTime calls, alongside native support for Discord, WhatsApp, Slack, and more. There are several mobile devices that have fantastic single, dual, and triple cameras much better than the Mac webcams.
And if you have an iPhone 13 Pro like we do, the results will be nothing short of fantastic. After all, the iPhone 13 Pro and its Max variant have one of the most advanced video cameras on any smartphone. The main 12MP camera can easily record footage in 4K resolution at 60 fps. And then you have the versatility to use the 12MP ultra-wie camera video with no distortion. These cameras can record footage in Dolby vision and have the ability to shoot videos in low light ambience. Imagine getting to do your video meetings with all that clarity and quality like a pro!
Though it’s free to download, there’s a monthly subscription fee of $4.99 / £4.39 / AU$5.49, for additional features. We gave Camo a try with an iPhone 13 Pro.
How to use Camo app
Install the app on both macOS and iOS from the App Store.
Focus on the menus available on the left to change between the lenses on your iPhone.
Camo already integrates with Zoom, FaceTime and others. Once you download the Camo, you just need to switch the video in their settings to ‘Camo’ and you’re all set to use your iPhone as a webcam during FaceTime.
Once done, make sure that you have placed the iPhone at a nice place so that it captures your good side when in those conference calls.
