Using Built-in Camera and Microphone in Windows

Available since Chrome OS 90.

To give Windows access to the built-in camera and microphone, perform the following steps:

  1. First, before starting Parallels Desktop, open Chrome OS settings > Apps Manage AppsParallels Desktop and enable permissions for Microphone and Camera.

  2. Start Parallels Desktop. 

    Note: If you wish to let Windows only access the Camera or Microphone, you can follow the steps below and simply enable only one of the respective devices. Also, you can at any moment revoke the permissions, by using Camera and Microphone icons in the top right corner of the Windows window.

    Restarting Parallels Desktop is required to apply the changes.
