This small feature isn't just cosmetics!
- It feels more smooth to move and place on the screen!
- Looks more coherent with the background, cause there are no incongruent edges! It looks cooler, also more professional.
- More efficient pixel usage: because the focus on the important thing: the head/face of the speaker
- Also, round webcam masks have to do something about functionality, not just aesthetics, because a round shape can fit the screen with less pain about cover something important!
- (and even if covers something, we can have a clue whether is important or not: Imagine the first screenshot (the lady with empty PPT) with cam bubble: we would see the first power point thumbnail's content better.)
- The cognitive schemata of "avatar / messenger bubbles" from smartphone are close enough to this webcam bubble, so the similar drag and drop functionality will be more obvious to the users (and the viewers also).
Round profile pics/avatars are norms today. Your competitor (loom) uses it, almost all social media uses it, pls. consider developing it. <3 <3 <3
