How To use beauty mode on zoom – Desktop and mobile

Windows laptop or MacBook don’t have beauty mode like smartphones, but smartphones lack touch-up function for most front-facing cameras. So now, zoom finally introduces a new feature that offers the same function – beauty mode (touch up) on desktop and mobile devices.

Aside from that, Zoom has also introduced video filters to make you look even better with contrast, saturation, brightness adjustments, and more. But not just that, these functions aren’t limited to Zoom desktop apps only, but also in zoom iOS and Android apps as well.
