Kaspersky 2020 (full version) runs on a computer of a friend. Furthermore, Google Chrome is installed there. The setting of the Chrome for the webcam is asked. Strangely enough, the setting at mail.google.com is always changed by Kaspersky
'Google Chrome uses webcam'. In fact, only with Google Mail.
I can exclude malware. I work in IT myself and installed the computer with a fresh USB stick. According to the logs, the behavior was visible shortly after Chrome was installed, with no program other than KIS installed.
I would only be interested in what gmail needs access to and ignores the global browser settings regarding demand, or whether the behavior also occurs with others?
