GoPro working with Google Meets realtime streaming to Chrome books

[ New ]

Problem: Gym teacher will have kids in class and kids online at home. This is a super fun teacher and kids want to participate. Kids need the exercise, interaction and fun during this tough time. 

 

How can head mounted GoPro/Camera be used with Google Meets to let the kids from home interact with the teacher?  There must be a way to solve this challenge. Solutions?

 

I dont know which product is most applicable. 

 

Solving this problem could be super cool Ad for GoPro and the power of bringing kids together and building resilency...

Hello, @barbaraf62. The HERO8 Black has a webcam feature integrated into its firmware that works with Google Meets. See How to Use Your GoPro as a Webcam for reference. However, the way that it works is by direct connection to a computer so it might not be suitable for a camera that needs to be mounted on a head strap/mount. 

 

This camera model though, as well as the HERO7 Black, can live stream to supported platforms - including Facebook, Youtube, Twitch, among others - wirelessly through the GoPro App. There is more information about it here

 

You may also check out the other camera models that can be used as a webcam through the discussion in the article at https://gopro.com/en/us/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam .
