How To Articles

As an avid Mac user who relies on GoToMeeting for video meetings, I empathize with the inconvenience of being unable to use your camera during a call. Fortunately, I have put together a helpful guide on how to grant GoToMeeting access to your camera on a Mac, ensuring seamless and uninterrupted video conferencing.

Step 1: Check Camera Permissions

The first thing you need to do is ensure that your Mac has granted the necessary permissions for GoToMeeting to access the camera. To do this:

  1. Open the “System Preferences” on your Mac.
  2. Select “Security & Privacy.”
  3. Click on the “Privacy” tab.
  4. In the left sidebar, click on “Camera.”
  5. Make sure the checkbox next to GoToMeeting is checked. If it isn’t, click on the checkbox to grant camera access.

Step 2: Quit and Relaunch GoToMeeting

If you have recently granted camera access to GoToMeeting or made changes to camera permissions, it’s best to quit and relaunch the application to ensure the changes take effect. Here’s how:

  1. Click on the GoToMeeting icon in your Mac’s menu bar.
  2. Select “Quit GoToMeeting.”
  3. Relaunch GoToMeeting by searching for it in your Applications folder or clicking on its icon in the Dock.

Step 3: Check GoToMeeting Settings

If you have followed the previous steps and still can’t access your camera on GoToMeeting, it’s worth checking the application’s settings to ensure everything is configured correctly. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Launch GoToMeeting.
  2. Click on “Preferences” in the top menu bar.
  3. Select “Webcam” in the left sidebar.
  4. Make sure the correct camera is selected from the dropdown menu. If you have multiple cameras connected to your Mac, choose the one you want to use with GoToMeeting.

Step 4: Update GoToMeeting

If you are still experiencing issues with your camera on GoToMeeting, it’s possible that you are using an outdated version of the application. Updating to the latest version can help resolve compatibility issues and improve performance. Here’s how to update GoToMeeting:

  1. Open GoToMeeting.
  2. Click on the GoToMeeting icon in the Mac menu bar.
  3. Select “Check for Updates.”
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install any available updates.


By following these steps, you should be able to allow GoToMeeting to access your camera on a Mac. Remember to check camera permissions, quit and relaunch the application, verify the settings, and update GoToMeeting if needed. With the camera working properly, you can now enjoy seamless video conferences and productive online meetings.
