What is a Webcam? A webcam (also called web camera) can take videos and images, and then send them in real-time to another PC either through the Internet or through a local network. Most webcams connect to the computer via the PS/2 or USB port. Wireless webcams connect via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Most webcams are capable of taking still images when offline.

Just to add to above, some webcams are built into the actual laptop or computer. It is sort of said above, but you can chat with webcams with another person who also has a webcam. I have even seen some people use them as security purposes.

A person usually does not have to 'activate' a built in webcam. Usually, all they have to do, is have a webcam program that will open the webcam.

Using your webcam will depend on what type of webcam you have, and specifically, whether it is a built-in webcam, or one that was purchased separately. Usually, a webcam simply needs to be turned on, and will work to capture images and video.
