Unmirror your Video Feed in a Teams Meeting

When you view your video feed in a Teams meeting, you see your camera view as if you are looking in a mirror. Participants do not see the mirror image. But if you are using a prop with text, displaying a background filter with text or wearing something with text, that text appears flipped to you in your camera view. If you prefer, you can unmirror your video feed to match what participants see.

Upon Joining the Meeting

  1. As you join a meeting, you are prompted to choose your video and audio settings. To unmirror your video feed, click or tap the settings gear icon.
