How Do I Flip My Camera on WhatsApp Video Call?

Are you struggling to flip your camera during a WhatsApp video call? You’re not alone!

Many users find this feature confusing, but it’s actually quite simple. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to flip your camera during a WhatsApp video call.

Step 1: Start a WhatsApp Video Call
First, you need to start a video call with the person you want to talk to. Open the chat with that person and click on the video call icon at the top of the screen.

Pro Tip: Make sure your camera is enabled for WhatsApp in your device settings. Otherwise, you won’t be able to start a video call.

Step 2: Flip Your Camera
Once you’re connected on the video call, you’ll see yourself in real-time on the screen. To flip your camera, simply tap on the camera icon located at the top-right corner of your screen.

If you’re using an Android device, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access additional options like flipping your camera.

Pro Tip:

If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, you can also try double-tapping anywhere on your screen during the video call to switch between front and back cameras.

Step 3: Adjust Your Camera Settings
After flipping your camera, take a moment to adjust it as necessary. You can zoom in or out by pinching or spreading two fingers on your screen and adjust lighting by tapping and holding on different parts of your screen.

Troubleshooting Tips

If for some reason this method doesn’t work for you, there are a few things you can check:

  • Make sure that both cameras are working properly: Go into your device’s Camera app and test both front and back cameras.
  • Check your device’s settings: Make sure that WhatsApp is allowed to access your camera. You can do this by going into your device’s Settings and then Privacy.
  • Restart the WhatsApp app: Sometimes restarting the app can resolve any camera issues.
