Samsung Watch 5 - Unable to switch between back and selfie camera on camera controller app

I recently got a Samsung watch 5, but I've not been able to switch between the back and selfie camera on the camera controller app. I can only switch the cameras on my phone. I've tried different gestures, swiped up and down, flicked the screen. 

 
I've watched several YouTube videos, but none of the videos show the above mentioned query.

Currently, you can only switch between photo and video mode and zoom in/out. Switching between back and front cameras is not possible.

I'm quite surprised as I copied this statement from Samsung's website :
camera orientation: Flick up on your watch to switch between front and rear facing cameras.

May be it will be made available in one of the future updates. I had raised this with Support last year...

A bit about the current functionality here,there are limitations which many Smartwatch users will be aware of. https://www.androidcentral.com/wearables/how-to-control-galaxy-phone-camera-with-galaxy-watch 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
