    Hey Chrome video team – switching to an off-center view of the presenter's face is weird. That's a technique that can work when filming an interview or when the subject is talking about something to nobody in particular, but when the presenter is looking at, and speaking directly to the viewer, cutting away to an angled side view is just weird and jarring, and makes it seem like we're not the audience anymore, and that the presenter has forgotten who they're addressing. Just like we've largely learned to avoid putting drop shadows on text, and unnecessarily serving deconstructed food at restaurants, you might also consider shelving this technique as well. If the presenter is talking to me, the viewer, it'd be great if eye contact could be maintained. Thanks. <:-D
