Muhammad Mubeen Javed
Google Meet is introducing a highly requested feature and upping its game against Microsft and Zoom Teams. Now, People will blur their backgrounds in calls and add customs backgrounds as well.
Google Meet is introducing it soon on desktop and mobile.
A Google document that revealed upcoming features with two entries, “Background blur and replaces (for desktop)”. The replace feature is the ability to replace backgrounds with images and videos.
New features are added to the app roughly every three months. Without any official confirmation, they are subject to change without notice. The listed changes are not guaranteed to become generally available. It may be modified from their current form.
There is no official word on when these updates will make it to Google Meet. Some other features are in the works such as breakout rooms, meeting moderation controls, the ability to dial an international phone number from a Meet video call, cloud-based noise cancellation, and the integration of Google’s digital whiteboard.
Some of these might be introduced with the background blur update or late. We will update this space as soon as there is an official word.
