Use your GoPro Hero 8 as a webcam on macOS with this new app

Like Canon and Fujifilm before it, GoPro has just formalized a new tool to use its Hero 8 like a webcam on his Mac .

The Windows version of the utility is still in development, but will arrive shortly.

An ultra-wide-angle webcam to stand out

If the solutions of Canon and Fujifilm previously cited allow the use of a mirrorless or Reflex camera to act as a high quality webcam, it must be admitted that the GoPro program opts for more discretion.

The latest-generation action-cam can now function as a webcam on macOS, allowing you to film yourself in ultra-wide-angle at 1080p. Something to stand out during your videoconferences (but remember to tidy up around you all the same!).

To use the program, nothing could be simpler. Download it here, then connect your GoPro Hero 8 to your Mac via USB-C. The action-cam should appear in the list of devices available on regular video conferencing software.
