The Logitech Capture webcam has not had software that works properly on computers, particularly Apple Macs. The M2 MacBook Air or the M1 Pro MacBook Pro have not been able to succeed with this external device and will begin to be phased out by the end of 2022. Logitech webcam equipment is one of the most popular in the world. However, this latest software has left much to be desired by users.
The Mac M1 and M2 had serious problems with the use of these cameras to use them. The overall experience has not been the best, although there were no major drawbacks in its use, for example, for video calls. However, when you tried to use some of the most important functions, the situation changed. There, the Logitech Capture software has been experiencing problems. The main of these evils lies in the lack of a more capable program to be used on Apple hardware.
Logitech and the need for change
The Swiss-American company has been working on a change to its software plan. Particularly, those who use Macs, both laptops and desktops, is the main urgency to upgrade. Logitech Capture would not be planning to offer the program that comes by default in its product.
Instead, it is intended to be able to work with two other different applications, such as Logi Tune and Logitech G Hub. In the first case, we are dealing with a confusing app, through which the configuration of the different Logitech devices can be toggled. Therefore, the second option is designed for those who love gaming and need to adjust the RGB lighting; as well as the sensitivity to issues specific to the online gaming approach.
In each of these applications the interface is very different, although all of them have different configurations to apply them to the need of the moment. The problem comes in that there is a certain delimitation of each of the functionalities within each application. It also emerges that neither of these two apps offer the variety of options that Logitech Capture does. This means, roughly speaking, that those with some of the Mac models may miss out on some features, such as face tracking or changing webcam orientations.
This software issue has been noted as a drawback with newer Macs today. However, it has been suggested that this problem could quickly spread to many more users of this device. As a result, the company, headquartered in the Swiss city of Lausanne, has taken the decision to remove the Capture application completely. This will be happening on computers running Windows operating systems or those Macs that are Intel-based.
Logitech has not given many answers to some specialized media inquiries. It is hoped that in the future, software plans dedicated to webcams can be clearer and avoid inconvenience to users.
