Hero 8 as a webcam by USB-C

Is there a way to use the Hero 8 as a webcam by USB-C out? It would be awesome to have it natively on some kind of Desktop GoPro App.

By usb output would be the best, since we don't have MediaMod available here. And it's too expensive for only getting a HDMI output, makes no sense.
Most camera manufacturers have at least camera remote on usb, and Canon as an example made a driver for this.
