At the meeting, you can select 2 type sizes of your webcam:

  1. In the upper right, press the 3-dot symbol.
  2. Select “Settings”.
  3. It will redirect you to the first “Application settings” tab.
  4. In the “video object fit” section, you can choose between “cover” and “contain”.
  • If you choose “Cover”, when sharing your webcam, the space where your face appears will have a slight zoom, since it will cover your entire webcam section.
  • If you choose “Contain”, when sharing your webcam, the space where your face appears will be shown as it is, without increases or decreases, since it will not cover your entire webcam section and may have black stripes to cover the space.

By default it will be “cover”, but you can change it as you prefer.
