How to set a virtual background in session (beta)

Displaying a virtual image as your background is a great way to lighten the mood in a session. Our virtual background feature is accessible to all participants and speakers.

Note: this feature is a service plan option that incurs an additional cost. If interested, admins can enable or disable virtual backgrounds in their Account Center. Virtual backgrounds are currently unavailable for Safari browsers. 

Add some pizzazz to your surroundings by following these steps: 

1. Click on Settings on the menu sidebar. 

2. Select the Virtual Background feature. 

3. Choose a predefined image or upload a custom image as your background. You can also decide on a blurred version of your real background. 

4. Click on Apply to save changes. 

Tip: users can choose between 8 different predefined background pictures or a custom background. For the latter, we recommend using an image with 16:9 ratio and max size of 16 MB.
