Against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom-led video conferencing has become a tool used not only to stay connected with friends and loved ones, but also to collaborate with colleagues. The Zoom app has a host of extremely user-friendly features that put it slightly ahead of the curve against top competitors like Microsoft Teams and Hangouts Meet. Among its many features, the “Retouch my look” tool caught my eye, which retouches your video with soft focus. In other words, it helps to smooth the skin on your face so that you look beautiful during video conferencing. If you find it great, let me show you how you can use Retouch My View to look better in Zoom on your iPhone/iPad, Mac and Windows PC.
