Until recently, taking a video on Chromebook wasn’t a straightforward process (and wasn’t even part of the default Google Camera app!). However, now you can easily record videos and upload them to YouTube or share them with friends and family.
How to Take a Video
To take a video on your Chromebook, you first need to open up the camera. For this example, we will use the stock Chromebook camera app, though you can use any camera app from the Play Store that supports video capture.
First, open the Camera app on your Chromebook. You’ll find it under the launcher menu— tap the “Search” button on the keyboard and search for “Camera” or click “All Apps” and look for the icon.
Once the app opens, click the “Video” icon, located next to the camera shutter button.
After the camera mode changes, click the “Record” icon to start to capture a video.
