How to Switch Camera in Google Meet

Is Google Meet using the correct camera? If you have more than one camera connected to your device, it's not unusual for the app to try using the wrong one, especially in Windows because you may find there is video or audio delays, poor network connection, low battery, limited data available and other quality issues Often, that other camera is embedded in a VR headset, in a closed laptop, or not even really installed anymore. 

For this, you can reverse the camera on your mobile device during a video meeting. The app uses the selfie view by default to reverse the camera to show the room you are in or a whiteboard. When your camera or audio doesn’t work with Meet, you can consider the following tips to resolve the issue. There are a set of resolutions to switch camera in Google Meet.

  • Change your camera settings in your computer

Step 1: On your computer, open

Step 2: Join a video meeting.

Step 3: Before you join or during the meeting, click “More” and then “Settings”.

Step 4: On the left, click Video and then Camera.


Step 5:Select a setting. You can select the devices available from the menu listing all your options. For example, there are two options below.

Step 6: Most people will just have their webcam, so the menu will be pretty slim, but in this case you can simply click on the Nuroum entry and it’ll switch cameras. It will also change to show the thumbnail with the new video signal. Assuming that’s working, just close the Settings window and you’ve got the new camera up and running:

Step 7: At the top right, click Close.


Following the steps above, you can switch the camera in Google Meet smoothly.
