I am a Mac user & was wondering if "Go-To-Meeting" have an option for adding a different background during Webinars? ZOOM offers a free Virtual Background feature that allows you to display an image as your background during a Zoom Meeting. You can either upload your own images or use their selection as your virtual background.
I recently signed up for "Go-To-Meeting" but can't locate a similar feature anywhere. I would LOVE to have a more professional background for my upcoming webinars.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Some third party apps like Snapcam can do this as well, and we've tested without any interference so far.
We are considering development on this idea for the near future, and I expect an updated timeline to be achieved soon. Thanks for your patience.
Good idea !
I have a Logitech webcam for example (which offers it's own desktop software for Windows), that allows for custom avatars and some background effects that can be shown in GoToMeeting broadcasts.
It is possible that your own webcam manufacturer offers software that allows you to customize the video feed.
Thanks, but I'm a Mac user looking for solutions... this is an already-established feature with competitors.
Being new to all this, I can't even locate where I can make a request to "Go-To-Meeting" that they consider offering this service to consumers. I have called in for Live Support but those representatives don't seem interested in my suggestion or providing me with any options to make a request.
This is why I'm reaching out to the community for suggestions/assistance. Thanks!
I am using MacBook, and I would like to use my webcam during the meeting session, how can I do it, but blurrying the background or using virtual background software, or any other way.
I completely agree! This is a big downside of this platform. Most other platforms our clients use have some sort of way to manipulate the background. Its very distracting working from home when we can see other people in the household walking by. Will this capability be available sooner than later?
Many of my buddies and I agree. GTM is not being competitive and not listening. Even their name is BORING! Everyone who wants another meeting please raise your hand! Really? I dropped Zoom like a bad habit and will never use their service again. WebEx has a user interface from hell and GTM has an opportunity to move forward in this stay-at-home environment. Blurred and Virtual Background, Photos (without LABS) would be a start. I doubt that they really care about the user community as this is how most companies avoid dealing directly with their paying customers.
