What are the arrows for when viewing the camera on the Simplisafe app?

When I access my cameras through the Simplisafe app, there are arrows on the right and left sides of the image yet on my doorbell camera the arrows are only on the right side.  Do the arrows mean anything?  Thanks.

@mdolfan​ that answer is incorrect. The arrows are there to show you that if you swipe in the same direction as the arrows are pointing, you can quickly switch between cameras

@mdolfan The arrow animation, known in IT circles as "idiot lights" are only there to let non IT people like us that there is something going on, as in this case the video is loading.  This type of effect is actually beneficial as you know for sure its in the process of loading the video. Another example is the good old "progress bar" when you install or update software.
