OS: 10.14

Webcam: USB Logitech

Browser: Brave (Chrome + privacy)

 

When I use the WebApp everything works fine: high resolution, good autofocus

When I use the native OSX Teams app the quality is really bad: low resolution, constant refocusing - thus blurry...

 

Can I change the Webcam settings in Teams - the browser uses the default as e.g. PhotoBooth.

MS Teams clearly uses different settings,

 

Thanks!
