The video call app Google meet started activating a feature we’ve been waiting for since the end of last year: blur and change video call background.
Google is gradually activating this feature, which may take a few weeks to reach everyone. We just need to update Google meet
Change of background
This feature is coming to the web and Android version the same day Apple announced portrait mode in FaceTime. Google had already announced this feature on Meet at the end of last year but we had to wait until today for it to start reaching users.
If now we don’t want the meeting participants to see our house, just click on the new icon Change of background
This option allows us to choose two types of blur, each with a different blur intensity, or change the background thanks to their 25 backgrounds including office spaces, landscapes and abstract backgrounds. This way you will gain privacy by hiding your home.
