How to turn off Mirror my video in Microsoft Teams
“Meeting participants now have the option to stop mirroring the image of their video preview—the small preview window that allows you to see what your video looks like during meetings. Imagine you have a virtual background that has text in it. Or you’re a teacher writing on a whiteboard. In both instances, you’ll see the text flipped in your view. However, other people in the meeting will see the text displayed correctly. By providing the user the option to un-mirror their view, the user can match their view to what everyone else sees. This makes it less distracting for presenters when trying to lead discussions, lessons, etc., during online meetings.”
This feature is beneficial in the following views explains Microsoft :
– Gallery, large gallery, preview videos, PowerPoint—content sharing only, and PowerPoint Live.
– Your outgoing video does not change. Your video does not appear mirrored for other people in the meeting.
– Where your own view is mirrored but others’ view of you is not.
