Google Meet brings new immersive background feature, meeting with animated background.

    The use of the Google Meet video conferencing platform has increased after the covid-19 lockdown and now the company is adding new features to it. Now the immersive background feature is being included in the platform for web users and they will be able to change their background during the video call. The platform has added two new animated backdrops for cafe and condo users, both of which will show time zone and weather-related changes in the background.

    Five new immersive and precise animations can be used as backgrounds during video meetings. Google Meet desktop users will now be able to choose Condo (Morning or Night), Cafe (Rainy, Snowy or Sunny) as animated video backgrounds. This can be done by going to the Effects Settings panel.

    These users will get the new Google Meet feature

    It has been told in the blog that the company is bringing the option of animated background to Google Workspace customers. Apart from these, G-Suite Basic and Business customers will also get the new feature. Personal Google accounts will be able to use it for now, although it may take up to 15 days for it to be fully rolled out. The special thing is that users will also be able to customize the new animated backgrounds according to their needs.

    Users can also put videos in the background

    Users using Google Meet on desktop or laptop have also been given the option to put videos in the background instead of the background image. To apply video in the background on the lines of images, users have to choose from the already given options. Right now users have been given the option of Classroom, Party and Forest. However, Google has said to include new presets in this list with the next updates.

    This will be the advantage of the new background feature

    Google has said that with the help of the new feature, users will be able to hide the things and disturbances seen in their background and their personality will look better. However, this feature will not be activated automatically and users will have to manually turn it on and choose the background image. Last year, users were given the option of applying custom images to their backgrounds. Now this feature has been improved.


    “In the past, a lot of new video filters, effects and augmented reality (AR) masks have been included in Google Meet. Users will be able to use the new features for personal calling on iOS and Android platforms. Users see new effects when they tap on the sparkle icon at the bottom right of the screen during a video call. Carousel also includes a ton of different effects, from color filters and some animated AR fake effects.”
