Just tested iMessage and FaceTime, both work but the camera quality is pretty abysmal

I would highly recommend using VMware Workstation if you're creating your own macOS VM from scratch, or VMware Player if you're using a pre-built VM, as you can use the "unlocker" tool found here to enable VMware Tools for macOS guests. The big drawback with macOS in any form of VM is that you cannot get hardware video acceleration working.
