Why has the laptop computer camera ( WEBCAM) not seen significant hardware upgrades in decades? Reward $1

For decades now the laptop webcam has not seen any significant change in camera quality, no flash apart from the added ability of being able to rotate and change the view on very few limited models.

My question is why haven't we seen any significan't change to the webcam camera?, unlike on mobile phones and tablets !!!

Cameras in laptops are generally used as web cam for VDO calling purpose and not for photography. We don't save and use pics taken by laptop cameras. And will be inconvenient to take pics using laptop camera.
Also for VDO calls picture size must be at lower side for live VDO. And high quality VDO transfer over the network will add lag in live VDO.
In short - there is no need of high quality (web) cameras in laptop.
