Camera & Microphone Test

Audio issues? Camera not recording? You've come to the right place!

The following 2 minute video shows you how to check if your microphone and/or camera issues are connected to Loom, or might be local to your device or Chrome.

Test website:

There are additional websites available online also for free. You can use a different one should you prefer, as the end result should be similar.

If your microphone and/or camera are not working on this test site, please check:

  • Your computer's system preference, navigate to "Sound" or "Camera" and check if there's any indication of a muted microphone or disabled camera
  • Restart your computer - this trusty old trick always helps!😁
