I am wondering whether it is possible to blur or change the background during video conferences like some other softwares can? Thank you very much.

    Not out of the box but you can use other tools doing so and then just select them as input cam.

    Such as? Do you have an example for me, @PeterBrunner? I tried Logitech Capture, but this won't work.

    Best case, Blizz would support a greenscreen camera overlay, background blurr and background removal by default.

    For me ChromaCam worked but feels like high Blizz CPU load while using it.

    Agreed for the feature requests.

  • Would be goog to implement in TeamViewer, most other services like TeamViewer already have it. Any chance to get this soon?

    We need this feature, too. In Meetings it´s very desireable to be able to overlay the background. Also in much other conditions.

    We need a backgroundimage-feature too!

    If I could hit the vote-button, Esther spoke of, I would do. But I got the info "You don't have permisson to do that.

    But anyway, we will be happy, if you enable the feature in TeamViewer meeting. Thank you
