Google Meet video zoom-in issue: Here’s how you can fix it

Google Meet lets you instantly create a meeting session or schedule one for later. At times, users may face an issue where their video frame gets ‘zoomed-in’.

Zoomed-in video frame issue in Google Meet
The problem usually occurs when joining a meeting and makes your camera zoom in abruptly. Moreover, the camera may zoom in anywhere on the screen, which can further degrade the video’s quality.

For instance, if you share your screen to present some visual content, like an infographic or slideshow presentation, then the zoomed-in video frame issue may make it inconvenient for meeting participants to view the same.

Method 1: Change video resolution before or during the meeting
Here’s how you can change the resolution of your video before joining a meeting:

  1. Go to Google Meet.
  2. Head to the Settings tab available in the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Click on the Video option.
  4. After that, click on the Send resolution option and set it to the Auto option from the drop-down menu.
  5. Then, click on the Receive resolution option and select the Standard option from the drop-down menu.
  6. Lastly, hit the Done button.

Method 2: Disable video framing feature
When you’re too far from the camera or not in the centre, Google Meet will automatically align the video frame. This could be a possible cause of the zoomed-in video frame issue. Disabling this feature can help fix the same. Just follow the steps given below.

  1. Join a meeting.
  2. Click on the three-dot menu button available at the bottom.
  3. Choose the Settings option.
  4. Click on the Video option available on the left sidebar.

Method 3: Control the camera manually
In Google Meet, you can manually control the camera while in a meeting. Here’s how to go about it.

  1. Go to Google Meet and join a meeting.
  2. Under the video’s bottom menu, select the Control camera option. Then, you will be directed to the in-room controller.
  3. Click the zoom out button available at the bottom.
  4. Hit the Home button available in the right corner next to the video.
  5. Additionally, the in-room controller can also be used to pan the video to the left or right.

Method 4: Zoom-out using keyboard
If you’re looking for a temporary fix, you can simply press the ‘Ctrl’ and ‘-’ (minus) keys together to zoom out for that particular video session.

Method 5: Use a different web browser
Certain sources have suggested that many Google Meet users have reported this issue on Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome. You may try using another web browser like Safari or Firefox to check if the issue persists.

Your video may have been cropped for a variety of reasons on Google Meet. However, there is no straightforward method to stop it from happening. But, the methods mentioned above are some approaches you can opt for to try and resolve the zoomed-in screen issue.
