You can disable the ‘Mirror my video’ setting to reverse your camera’s Zoom on both the mobile and web version.
Zoom is an audio and video chat application, has an estimated market share of 14%, which is close to G-Suite which is on top of the list. With the addition of easy, straightforward and user-friendly features in recent years the number of users has grown exponentially, and the increase remains visible.
However, Zoom does have certain default settings that could cause annoyance to a significant portion of users. One of these settings is ‘Mirror my Video that is turned on by default. The majority of other apps within the same segment also have this feature. It’s like looking at yourself in a mirror , where everything appears to be inverted. You as well as the background, and any text or image you’ve got on the backdrop. But, the person on opposite side doesn’t view the mirror image but rather see it how it’s supposed be seen.
However there are many who aren’t completely comfortable with the idea of mirrored videos and would prefer to view it in its original form. Zoom provides the an option to turn off the setting , and we’ll go over the issue in the upcoming sections. Additionally, as users are both active on the desktop and mobile apps, we will examine both in separate sections to allow you to disable the settings in both locations.
