Since phones are small, and we’re more focused on seeing the participant we’re talking to, we often end up forgetting where the camera’s pointing. This is how we end up in video meetings
where the only thing we see of the mobile participant is the top of his/her head or a mysterious chin. There’s nothing wrong with your chin, but people want to see your entire face.
Zoom’s mobile app presents you with a large view of the active speaker and a small view of your own camera. Use this self-view to your advantage and make the necessary adjustments. If you’re stationary and in a room, it’s best to use a mobile stand and adjust the device’s position so that the camera faces directly at you. That way it's not shaking in your hand every time you move.
If you're about to go into our safe driving mode
, where your microphone, camera, and video shut off to prevent driver distraction, be sure to let the other participants know so they understand why they can't see or hear you.
