To get started, you’ll need to install Camo Studio on your computer and get Camo on your iOS or Android device. We recommend installing the mobile app first.
将应用程序下载到移动设备后，您可以直接从 Camo 共享计算机应用程序。
- To share from iOS to macOS, AirDrop the desktop app to your Mac by tapping the AirDrop icon on the Getting Started screen.
- To share to Windows, tap
Send Linkfrom the Getting Started screen on Android or iOS.
Once you've downloaded Camo Studio, double-click the Camo icon to install it.
- On Windows, check the box to accept our license agreement and click
- On Mac, grant Camo permission to install. It will move itself to “Applications”, and set up a plugin to let video conferencing apps see and use it.
On both Windows and Mac, Camo Studio will also ask if you want it to automatically check for updates. We recommend that you allow these, as we release updates regularly to stay compatible with a wide range of video apps and add new features and improvements.
Camo lets you connect your mobile device to Camo Studio via either Wi-Fi or USB. We recommend pairing over USB for your first session as it offers the best video latency and connection stability.
If you are using an Android device and are looking to connect to a Windows computer, the easiest way to pair is via Wi-Fi as the process to pair through USB is more complex in this case.

Pairing Camo over Wi-Fi
Pairing Camo with Camo Studio over Wi-Fi is simple and works the same for iOS and Android devices:
- On your computer, open Camo Studio and tap the
+button next to the
Devicedropdown in the left sidebar. This will open a pairing window displaying a QR code.
- In Camo on your mobile device, tap the wireless connection button in the top-right and then scan the QR code displayed on your computer.
- Your devices should connect automatically and video from your mobile device should start streaming through to Camo Studio.
The minimum requirements for pairing over Wi-Fi on Apple devices is macOS Catalina (10.15, released in 2019) and iOS 13 (released in 2019). All supported versions of Windows and Android are compatible with Wi-Fi pairing.
