Toggle video camera mirroring on or off for Teams calls
ISSUE: Video feed is always mirrored during a Teams call, meaning that written text, such as on a whiteboard, is displayed incorrectly.
SOLUTION: Provide a toggle option to not mirror the camera when in a video call.
Thank you for your continued feedback, the team is currently planning for this work. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
Note: Your meeting attendees receive a non-mirrored video including the image of you and any text, whiteboards, etc. The image and video in your Call Monitor screen is shown to you only, as if you were looking in a mirror.
basically I see my self in preview the right way but to other people its mirrored, do you have a solution to this?... It is really worst to see my face
I also have a mirrored image, and it is frustrating. Researching with company of 14,000 employees and we may just quit using MS Teams for our meetings amongst ourselves and customers. Please update.
PLEASE CHANGE THIS!! I don't understand why the mirror was ever introduced - we are not wanting to look at ourselves and be comfortably surprised a familiar mirror reflection, we want to use this in a functional way with text etc and need to be able to see things as our viewers see them.
Please prioritise this change. It is hands down, the most frustrating feature of Microsoft teams.
Thanks for your consideration :):)
Yes, let's change this one please as it is unnecessary, yet quite a big feature.

Please fix this... This is forcing me to use other options for web conferencing.
The screen is very confusing, especially when you have a text. I hope you have a toggle for mirroring option instead.
We use a USB capture card to bring our lecture capture device image into video conference meetings. We had Teams as our preferred video conference software but once we started bringing in our capture device as camera input we had to switch to Zoom since they have a toggle for to turn mirror off. Meets also has a plug-in for turning off mirror.
Teams PLEASE add this feature so we can get back to using the Teams software. You guys are losing business because of this!

Why is the default flipped in the first place? Mirror video is a nice feature if its an option. Its an absolute deal breaker if the default is to have it mirrored.. Why offer advanced things like NDI integration if I can't see the image correctly displayed on my screen. It makes it impossible to do presentations with text if doing it through any other method but screen sharing. Super dumb guys come on.
Please provide a toggle option to mirror/not to mirror the camera when in a video call. In ZOOM this is possible!!!!!!! So I can see there, what the others users see, for example when i,m schowing some written things. In Teams there is no option to do so, in other ViedeoCallSystems is this standard.

I don't find this confusing and totally understand that my team mates don't see a mirrored image. However, I DO wish to frame my presentation as my audience sees it, and the mirrored image just makes that harder. Please don't assume this is for my own good, it is a PitA.
how difficult is it? Why can't you make it happen sooner. We've still been waiting on this. Please help~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
many free softwares can do this... ridiculous. Need to fix it asap.
FIx it is confusing
please fix this issue, would like to stop using teams because there is not simple function providing this
Stephen Butler commented
I'd like to ask for this too please - an option on device options to flip or not flip the image shown to the presenter.
Nigel Lake commented
This can't come soon enough. I avoid using Teams as far as possible and this is one of the reasons, as it makes it hard to know what the people at the other end are seeing... Another example of where MS is miles behind Zoom!
