Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular clients for online meetings out there. Some users may even prefer Microsoft Teams to Zoom and Google Meet because of its unique features like different chat channels for different groups and allowing meeting organisers to record the meeting in HD. While these are some helpful features, Microsoft Teams has its own quirks as well. Many users aren’t fond of the meeting client flipping their video and background by default. In this article, we bring you the top ways to flip or unmirror your video or background image in Microsoft Teams.

Step 2: Click on ‘Device settings’.
Step 3: Turn the toggle bar off for ‘Mirror my video’.

Flip the background image in Microsoft Teams
If your background image on Microsoft Teams contains some text, you may want to flip it before joining the meeting. By default, Microsoft Teams mirror your background image, making it hard for other members to read the text on it. Since there is no way to flip the background image on Microsoft Teams, you can use your PC’s default photo viewer to flip the image before uploading it as your background on Teams. Since the image will be mirrored again when you join the meeting, all the participants will be able to see the original unflipped image as your background.
These are the top 3 ways to flip your video feed or background image on Microsoft Teams. If your PC’s webcam comes with its own software application, you can flip your camera footage from there as well. You can even use a third-party camera tool to flip your image, although we wouldn’t suggest it now that there’s a native feature on Teams for it.
