You can use your camera and microphone to record video emails. Sometimes, you need to give sites permission first.

Here is how to that:

  1. Open Chrome and go to your Gmail (https://mail.google.com)

  2. Click on “Secure” dropdown menu:
    Inbox_-_govno3000_gmail_com_-_Gmail
  3. In the dropdown that appears, select “Allow” for both camera and microphone:
    Inbox_-_govno3000_gmail_com_-_Gmail
  4. Refresh your browser.
