Today we’re thrilled to launch a long-awaited feature in Camo: full compatibility with Safari, FaceTime, QuickTime, and more. As well as adding support for all of Apple’s apps on modern versions of macOS, this update also enables all third-party apps that previously relied on Camo’s integrations to work natively. Discord, Slack, WhatsApp, and others now run great with Camo without modification.
With the release of Camo Studio 1.6 and macOS 12.3, Camo is the first virtual camera to be natively compatible with all apps in the Mac ecosystem. Camo’s integrations will remain available for users running older versions of macOS that still require them.
This change comes as a consequence of two years of conversation with Apple on how we can make the most of the incredible cameras in their devices. This wasn’t the feature we originally intended to ship as part of Camo 1.6, but once we heard the good news from Apple we rearranged our launch schedule to make this happen. Thank you, team Apple! ❤️
We were thrilled to see Apple’s launch of the updated iPhone SE earlier this year – which at $429 represents incredible value for a high quality, dedicated webcam device – and the launch of their Studio Display with an integrated camera and A13 chip for image processing and offload. We will be updating Camo to take advantage of the Studio Display’s capabilities in the near future.
In the meantime, we’re planning to share another significant update to Camo in the coming weeks. Thank you for being part of the Camo journey!
