Feature Request: Wireless Support for Quik Desktop?

In response to the covid-19 virus, many companies like Canon have had firmware updates to enable their cameras to be used as webcams. Sony has had this functionality for a while via USB. I understand that a clean HDMI with a capture card is a solution, but such devices are in short supply or heavily price gouged.

 

Could GoPro release a software feature for the desktop app to connect wirelessly to cameras like the mobile app does? Or controlled via the USB cable? Not only would this be very useful for general use but especially so if it could enable webcam output to the pc. Developers like Konrad Iturbe have already emulated such functionality, and an official solution within Quik would be more than welcome. I feel like there is a niche market for high-quality webcams and broadcasting that GoPro could tap with this feature in addition to benefitting regular users.
