Mirror My Video

Microsoft Teams is getting a new update that will enable users to flip their video feeds in a call or meeting. This new “Mirror my video” feature should make it easier for presenters to read the text written on a physical whiteboard or a paper during virtual presentations.

According to Microsoft, “Mirror my video feature provides the user the option to un-mirror their video and thereby have the same view as the other users(s) in the meeting. By un-mirroring their video, the user will see the text correctly. No more flipped text in backgrounds or while holding a small whiteboard while teaching primary school kids. This feature is helpful in gallery, large gallery, ppt-content only sharing, and ppt-live scenarios”.
 



Currently, Microsoft Teams flips the camera feed for a presenter horizontally, but it remains un-mirrored for other meeting participants. This makes the written text difficult to read for presenters since it appears backward in the mirrored video feed on the screen. The schedule for the rollout of this feature is as follows:
 
  • Standard: We will begin rolling this out in late January (previously mid-November) and expect to complete rollout end of February (previously late January).
  • GCC: We will begin rolling this out in late January (previously early December) and expect to complete rollout end of February (previously late January).
  • GCC-H: We will begin rolling this out in mid-February (previously early January) and expect to complete rollout end of March (previously late February).
  • DoD: We will begin rolling this out end of February (previously mid-January) and expect to complete rollout early April (previously mid-March).
