We are in an age of video calls, and this list of the best webcams is here to help. Whether you use them in a professional sense or with friends and family, we've got something for you below. While nearly every laptop comes with a webcam built-in, they are often only capable of low resolutions. The small microphones included in laptop webcams don't produce the best quality sound, either.

By installing one of the best webcams from our list, however, you can give your video calls and conferences a massive boost both in terms of video and audio quality. Because these webcams are external devices (connected via USB), the manufacturers are able to pack in more advanced tech. That means you can find webcams with 1080p and even 4K resolutions. Many of these webcams also feature microphones that offer noise cancellation, which is ideal in busy environments with lots of ambient noise.
