Cameo is the famous app for ordinary people to meet famous people. Was that confusing? Well, it’s quite simple, actually. The start-up allows everyday joes to book shootouts for themselves or their friends through specific celebrities. So instead of groveling on twitter, all you have to do a select the celebrity, and let them know what to say!
A new update to the app now allows you to get on a Zoom call with your favorite celebrities! Here is everything you need to know about it.
What is a Cameo Live Zoom call?
Cameo has added a new option to its Celebrity shoutout app. While previously you could book a celebrity to create a short personalized video for you, the new update now allows you to get on a Zoom call with your favorite celebrity!
You need to check the availability of your selected celebrity, of course, but other than that it is quite a seamless process. The Zoom calls are scheduled for ten minutes. However, during the launch phase, some celebrities were known to extend that by a few minutes. We guess it depends on well you keep your celebrity entertained!
The Zoom video call can accommodate up to five people including you. As of now, Cameo does not allow you to add more people as they claim they want the experience to be ‘personalized’.
Not all the celebrities are currently offering Zoom videos though, so you’ll have to check with your favorites to make sure. However, there are some big names currently bookable like Sean Astin from Lord of the Rings, Ian Ziering, and even Tony Hawk!

Cameo has made it super easy to set up a Cameo Live Zoom call. Simply select the celebrity that you would like to book, then tap Book a Zoom. You book Zoom calls on both, the Cameo website as well as the mobile app (Android | iOS).
Once you select the celebrity to call, you’ll be directed to a calendar. Here you can check which days your celebrity is available, and also set a time slot.
