    Hi,
    Please explain as to how I can use my Logitech C 920 webcam with my TV. Also, which is the best app for video chats with this camera that is available for Oneplus TV. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    No one has yet tried using the webcam with OnePlus TV but as per the reports on the internet with respect to use of Webcam with Android TV, Logitech C920 is the best plug in device.
    You can just plug in the cam in one of the USB ports and use the softwares like Tellybean or True Conference for video calls.
    All other knows apps like Duo, Hangout, Whatsapp need to be either tried by side loading or from browser but the experience might not be optical even if it works.

    Let us know your experience, would be useful for other users too :)

    Venky,
    I was able to see video on the TV but no sound from either side. Is this a problem with TV software, as the cam is fully functional on my Win10 PC. Also, I have this repetitive update problem with Hotstar, Sony etc., streaming apps.Some guys apparently have got updates.How come this hasn't reached me?
    Please do reply when free.

    Hey,
    Which app did you use for Video call?
    Can you recheck by turning ON the USB Audio Option in the Developer Settings.

    Regarding the update, it will be pushed to all users by June 1st week, but if you don't want to wait you can request by sharing your S.No with Catherine or me.

    You can read more details about the update here

    Hey,
    Seems like the issue of mic not working is something to do with the Android 9 version of Google OS. People have reported to google and uploaded the logs... I would suggest you to do the same too as it might escalate the development from Google's side.

    It's the same as a phone... Click on the Build Number for 7 times to activate developer options :)
