Did you know nearly any USB webcam works on Xbox One? Microsoft supports a growing range of third-party webcams for use with Skype video calls, live streaming, and more. We've rounded up some of our favorite webcams with Xbox One in mind.
Logitech's C925-e is one of the best cameras on the market right now with a balance of quality and affordability. It records at 1080p, alongside fast autofocus technology, and low-light compensation for late-night gaming sessions. Paired with dual microphones, and a privacy shutter for peace of mind, it's an excellent fit for any situation.
The Kiyo is part of Razer's streamer certified range, and it has one essential feature: a big ring light on the front. For streamers short on space for lighting, the Kiyo can solve the issue of being seen while you're broadcasting, with a simple twist adjusting the brightness. Backed by 1080p at 30 FPS or 60 FPS for a resolution drop, it's ideal for easy live shows.
The AUKEY FHD Webcam is among the best mid-range cameras you can buy, providing a healthy range of features for video calls. Recording at 1080p with stereo sound, you get a clear and cinematic picture without the price tag of more advanced models. It also has a clip-on base, which keeps the webcam secure across different surfaces.
When cutting costs without hugely compromising features, Logitech's C615 is a popular well-rounded choice for both streams and video calls. Though its live video capabilities are capped at 720p, the differences aren't hugely noticeable for the savings made.
Primed and ready
The Logitech C925-e (opens in new tab) tops out at 1080p with a high-quality image, perfect for any video caller or streamer. It cuts out the PC-centric features, offering unbeaten value for high performance. However, with support for hundreds of USB webcams on Xbox One, don't overlook any existing PC peripherals you might have stowed away.
