Video Backgrounds Now available on Google Meet for Android

Google is rolling out a new feature for Google Meet on Android devices. Users will be able to add video backgrounds to their calls. Up until now, you could only set images as your background, or you could blur it. This feature is already available for iOS and also on the web.

Google announced this feature in a blog post on Tuesday, the 28th of September. Google said, 

“Custom backgrounds can help you show more of your personality, as well to help hide your surroundings to maintain privacy. With the option of replacing your background with video, we hope this makes your video calls more fun.”
