Ever wondered how to flip your Google Meet camera during a video call? It's a common question, and while the mirrored view might seem strange, there's a reason for it.

This guide dives into the mirrored camera, explaining why you see yourself flipped and how to adjust your camera to the correct orientation if desired. Whether you want to present yourself more naturally or ensure that written text appears correctly on screen, this guide offers valuable insights to enhance your video conferencing experience.

When To Use Google Meet Mirror

Google Meet doesn't have a default Google Meet flip feature. You need to install an extension that will enable you to flip your mirror image. This feature can be useful in scenarios where you need to display text or objects with writing, such as a whiteboard or a document, to the audience, making it appear correctly oriented for them.

Here are some situations when you might want to have a mirrored image:

  1. Presenting text
  2. Demonstrating handwritten notes
  3. Showing logos or signs
  4. Teaching
  5. Collaborative work

On your phone

You cannot mirror images on your Google Meet mobile app as you cannot install extensions on your phone. However, there are other effects you can use such as the filters on your video call. You can change your background, enhance your lighting, and even add fun effects to your face. Once you're in the meeting, your video feed will usually appear on the screen and you'll be able to see it.

If you wish to mirror your screen, we suggest doing so on a desktop or laptop.

How To Fix The Mirrored Image

Sometimes you may find glitches on your end that won't allow you to flip your camera.

If you're unable to find the option to adjust the mirror effect or if the issue persists after making changes, you can try the following additional steps:

  • Restart the app: Close the Google Meet app completely and then reopen it to see if the issue resolves itself.
  • Uninstall the extension: It could be that the extension is faulty. Try to reinstall it.
  • Restart your device: Sometimes, a simple restart of your device can help resolve technical glitches with the camera.
  • Check camera settings outside of the app: If your device has settings to control the camera orientation outside of the Google Meet app, you can try adjusting them there as well.

If none of these fix resolve the problem, there may be a hardware issue with your device or camera that requires further troubleshooting or professional assistance.


By understanding why you see a mirrored view and exploring the available options for adjusting your camera, you can now confidently navigate Google Meet. For situations where capturing every detail is crucial, consider exploring Bluedot.
