The picture you see is mirrored but the video picture that others see from you will be correct. Can be confusing when you don't know this and just see your own and read text backwards.
There is no setting to change this in Windows 10 and if you have software that can switch it on your side it will be mirrored on attendees side instead.

Teams really needs a preference choice for flipping the image for the preview/selfview.
When someone "previews" something they should see exactly what the far end would see. Not a flipped image. If a background is created and you want to see what it looks like(as a far end would) there is no way to do that.
It would be nice to view my company logo properly.

@Linus Cansby My request is a selection preference for the user. Perhaps you can forward that request/feature. Skype for Business had it. I understand the idea of the mirror but I also look at it from a video production standpoint of a preview monitor which is not a mirrored image of what is displayed. Again, leave the preference to the user.
Also, I cannot figure out how to pick a background and keep it for all calls. I have to reselect it for every call while in the call and not before the call. I have to research it more but that is my experience so far.

@JimScalise Vote for the uservoice and write a comment why you need a switch for the mirroring.
There is also a uservoice requesting saving the background option.

I've been searching for a solution to the mirrored image problem and, so far, have drawn a blank. My situation might be a little unusual because I have been a television presenter since 1982 and am very used to seeing myself on a monitor as viewers see me. I really don't want to be flipped horizontally, vertically, diagonally or any other way! Surely the app should have a mirror toggle, as Zoom does, to allow users the choice? Can it be so difficult to implement?

I'm sorry, but this just blows my mind. Why would I EVER want to see a mirror image of my self in a video call or presentation? If I click on Preview, it is the very nature of that word (PREVIEW) indicates that I want to see what other users see. Please restore order to the galaxy and let us know when this gets fixed.

This is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Never saw this in Skype, Zoom, GotoMeeting, Microsoft Live, Webex, Microsoft Teams is the only service that thinks mirrored preview makes sense. Makes it completely unusable. I won't use it until its fixed.
