Hi @NurseVet 

 

That's recent feature that was added to iOS 16 on the iPhone and was turned on by default during the update. 

 

To switch it off:

  1. Go to the Settings app on your iPhone, then go down to General > AirPlay & Handoff.
  2. Toggle off Continuity Camera Webcam.
  3. It should then stop proposing it in Zoom on your Mac.

 

There are some cool fancy options though with Continuity Camera that you can read about here:

You might decide to try it! 😊 

 

I hope that helps!

The Continuity Camera Webcam can only be used on Mac, if you want to use it on Windows, you need to use some third-party tools.

 

Here are some recommended free tools that are easy to use and support Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS:

iVcam: https://www.e2esoft.com/ivcam/
EpocCam: https://www.elgato.com/en/epoccam
FineCam: https://www.fineshare.com/finecam/
Iriun Webcam: https://iriun.com/


I would like to highlight FineCam as it not only allows you to use your phone as a computer camera, but it is also an AI-driven virtual camera that can change the background and enhance lighting, helping you bring more lenses, content, and more to your meetings.

 

Here is a document on how to use FineCam to turn your phone into a webcam.

A very good feature for those people who don't have webcam, so that people can made their phone a webcam in their PC. As it's a very easy process to do so but many people have no idea how to do that.
