First off, why does Zoom automatically mirror my background?

Pretend your video call is a mirror and not a conference call. This is a view you're used to seeing every day when you get dressed or wash your hands. Since it's a view you're familiar with, Zoom makes it easier for you to understand how to move naturally in a digital space.

Without mirroring, when you raise your right hand, you'll see yourself raising with your left, which can be confusing- alarming even if you're in the middle of a massive presentation.

Important Note: Your meeting attendees on the under hand, see you normally as if they were sitting across from you. Whether you mirror or unmirror your view, it will not change how others see you.
