Samsung A71 front camera zoomed in on third party apps?

Highlighted

So basically I recieved my new Samsung A71 today and on all third party apps the front camera is very zoomed in and can barely fit my face in the full frame. In the camera app it is fine, but when I use apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, Omegle the front facing camera is zoomed in. Anyone else having a problem with this? Any fixes for it?

Doesn't multi tapping the front to back camera button cycle through the different zooms ?

I know on my A70 I have that option on some of my 3rd party apps.

Unfortunately I don't use the ones you mention

Sadly, the apps I use do not have this feature and my front facing camera is still cropped/zoomed in.

Sorry to hear that, if there is a comment , feedback or other communication option with the app developers then maybe try to contact them.
Let them know the situation and try to get others with the issue to do likewise.

I know developers can't always be super quick on fixes because they have to cover alot of different devices and specs, but hopefully if enough people kindly let them know, it will get sorted

The only other short term option, at least for Instagram is take the image on the stock camera or open camera or whatever app you use which allows a wider shot, then share to Instagram, again it's not a fix but only thing I can think of for now

I installed and finally registered on Instagram to check for you, I can confirm the issue is on my A70.
I did believe you I just wanted to check the issue on mine....the camera switch button doesn't offer a full lens cycle so I'm guessing letting the developer know will be the only way.

Sorry I have no real fix
