Xiaomi: In an age of virtual conference calls and family gatherings, Xiaomi announces for Thursday (24) the launch of Mi TV Webcam, which allows video calls on your TV screen. The new device, which initially arrived in stores in India, is an accessory for Mi Smart TV and allows calls in full HD with Google Duo.
The date was confirmed on the official Twitter of the Chinese giant, which defined the webcam as “as clear as life itself”. According to the post, although current realities require social distancing, “we are doing our best to help fill this gap.”
Webcams for smart TVs are not new. Several manufacturers, such as OnePlus, have already released the device for their smart TVs. With limited travel during the covid-19 pandemic, video calls became a necessary tool to re-establish family and professional contacts.
