This webcam test happens entirely on your computer. Nothing is saved and no one will ever know you made silly faces and sounds. Including us. While you’re at it, you can also use our webcam test tool to check your teeth and your hair before your online meeting! Looking sharp? You’re good to go!
Tried all the troubleshooting suggestions and your camera still won’t pass the webcam test? Try your camera on a different computer and try a different camera on your computer to find out what’s not working. If your camera isn’t working on any computer, then you might want to take it back to the shop or contact your camera brand’s Support.
You might want to test your webcam (and microphone) for a few reasons. If you purchased a new webcam, you’ll want to test if it works properly before you use it for an actual meeting. Maybe you have several webcams, and you want to compare and see which one works best. Or you want to make sure your camera will function properly with your current settings. Of course, you can also use our webcam test to rearrange your camera and make sure it captures you from your best angle. In short, you don’t want to keep your clients or colleagues waiting while you fidget with your gear.
First, you should make sure the right camera and microphone are selected from the settings. When you click the “Run Test” button, our app will make a temporary recording through your webcam and microphone. When you stop the test, the app will automatically play back the recording in a loop so you can assess the quality, too. You can repeat the test by clicking “Test Again”.
Doing the actual test will also let you test the sound. So, click “Run Test” and say something funny.
We listed a few common issues in the troubleshooting section higher up on this page.
