Can i use my phone as a webcam?

Hey so i have some online teaching jobs.

My laptops built in camera is only 720p and 1MP.

My Samsung galaxy j5 cam is Full HD and 8mp and has a wide FOV and I can choose 4/3 OR 16/9 ratio.

Plug it into my laptop via usb and it should make a decent webcam no?

Thanks in advance.
