An indispensable Chrome browser extension which allows you to overlay your webcam on pretty much any web-page!

Ideal if you are using a video calling system like Google Meet - this extension allows you to show your webcam view when presenting your screen, including when using Google slides.

Simply click the extension icon to add a camera to the screen. Move this webcam view around and resize it to get the perfect position to help communicate with your viewers, students or colleagues better.

This extension runs completely locally, does not require any special permissions and will never, ever, ever capture or store your data.

It’s free, so you can grab the code or install the app from the Google Web Store.


All you need to do is install! No sign-in, no configuration - it just works. Once installed, you just need to click on the extension in your browser toolbar, and your webcam will be shown as an overlay on the currently open browser tab. If you cannot see the extension icon, you might need to pin it from the extension menu.
