You will now be prompted to select a preferred layout. Select one of the following options based on your current preferences. 

  • Vertical: This option allows you to capture your front and back camera feed vertically. 

  • Horizontal: This option allows you to capture feed from your rear and front camera side by side, horizontally. 

  • Picture in Picture: This option places a small circle in the bottom right corner of your video/image. This circle by default will reflect your front camera feed while the rest of the screen will capture your rear camera feed.

Once you’ve made your choice, double tap on your screen to switch between camera feeds and vice versa.
