It's not possible to do that with Windows Phones. You need to buy a webcam.

You don't get satisfaction because your expectations don't coincide with what the phone is intended for. The only phones that I've seen having a webcam feature are Chinese knock-offs of older Symbian devices.

As psychomania pointed out, if you want a webcam, buy a webcam.

I suggest you complain to Microsoft, also you may want to look at global sales figures to see quite the opposite is true.

So for now either buy a android, iOS or a web cam. Web cams can be found for under £10 nowadays and can be left permanently attached to the computer in an optimal position.

Re: How to use Nokia Lumia 520 as a Webcam to PC

Is it with Lumia 520 and lower versions or with all the Lumia devices . I can see a App named Webcam Remote which says that we can view the Webcam of the PC on our phone then why is it not visa versa. If it is not possible to use Lumia devices as webcams after Microsoft's claim that it can get synchronized with Windows 8 operation system then Microsoft has to rethink on some basic things required to all users. And why should we complain to Microsoft separately ? is it not a Nokia Device. It should be a concern for the both. I have seen a lot of posts which has not been action from last 2 + years . How do you think that complaining will help. Sorry if the words are sounds are negative as i want these basic things to be in the Lumia phone which would help users like us . Waiting for the Release of Windows phone 8.1[ blue]
