Why use your camera online?

Faster than using Facetime or Photobooth

The amount of steps most people take to access a video feed of themselves is really quite long. Typically, people have to have a Mac or PC with Apple Facetime, Photobooth, or some other webcame software installed (such as for third-party vendors like Logitech). In these cases, people have to make the connection that their software can turn the camera on, then start the software, and go through a variety of functions that they don't really need to use to access the video stream. With turncameraon.com, all of these supplemental steps can be skipped. You can directly and simply start your camera.

Your camera works even if you're missing camera software drivers

If you don't have camera software installed, like on a new Chromebook or tablet, you can still use turncameraon because we use HTML5 WebRTC to allow you to turn your camera on without any native code!

Makeup Mirror: Test your beauty products

You can use TurnCameraOn.com to help put your makeup on. If you don't have a makeup mirror, TurnCameraOn.com will act like an online mirror and let you see yourself as you apply the makeup. This feature is very useful to see what you look like in new foundation, mascara, lipstick, or other types of makeup.
