The feature is not currently available on the desktop app but users can expect it in the near future
The virtual background feature in online video meetings has secured a place among one of the favourite features of users’ across separate platforms, be it Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, or any other video conferencing software. The feature has such a loyal fanbase and for good reason too. It’s not only practical but fun too. A rare phenomenon where these two things collide.
So, it’s no wonder that Webex users have been lobbying for the Virtual Background feature on the desktop version of the app for PC and Mac. The feature is not available as of yet on the desktop version, although the iPhone and the iPad app does offer it.
Will the Virtual Background be available for PC and Mac in the Future?
The answer is yes. The feature will be making its way to the desktop apps for PC and Mac in the future as Cisco says that it plans to support it. But not much is known about its development or release timeline at this point. All we know is that it is in the pipeline and hopefully will soon be available for the users who have been eagerly waiting for it.
The virtual background is one of the irreplaceable tools in users’ arsenal saving many users from embarrassments while making the meetings fun for countless others. Webex users will have to wait for the feature to come to the desktop app, but rest assured, they can be certain that it will be coming, hopefully, sooner than later.
If you can’t wait for the official feature, you can try a virtual camera like ChromaCam in the meanwhile to use virtual backgrounds in Webex meetings from the desktop.
