Hiding or showing my video on my display Follow

Overview

If your video is on during a meeting with multiple participants, it automatically displays to all participants, including yourself. If you show yourself, you can see how you look to others. If you hide yourself, your own video display disappears from your screen, leaving more room to see other participants. You can control whether to hide or show yourself in your own video display for each meeting.

Instructions

To hide your video from your own display:

  1. Start or join a Zoom meeting. The meeting automatically begins in Speaker View and you can see your own video.
  2. Hover over your video and click the ellipses button in your video to display the menu, then choose Hide Self View.
    You no longer see the video of yourself, even though others in the meeting can see the video of you.

To restore the video of yourself:

  1. Click the View button in the top-right corner of the video window. 
  2. Click Show Self View.
    The video of yourself is displayed on your screen.
