- The Windows 10 Anniversary Update makes many webcams inoperable, according to Ars Technica.
- Webcams in applications like as Skype and Open Broadcaster Software do not work with the update, and hardware like Logitech's C920 and C930e cameras will not broadcast video properly.
- Microsoft says it’s working on a fix, but did not reveal when it will be available.
The problem appears to affect both USB webcams and network-connected IP devices.
Microsoft introduced the free anniversary edition update of Windows 10 a few weeks ago. The update includes biometric security through Windows Hello for Apps and the company’s web browser, Microsoft Edge. Labeled as “enterprise-grade security,” users can use their face, fingerprint or iris recognition rather than typing in a password.
A recent survey by Adaptiva found most companies did not view Microsoft’s release of Windows 10 Anniversary OS as a significant motivator for upgrading.
