Virtual Background for Webinars

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.  

 

Any suggestions?

Good idea !

 

I have a Logitech webcam for example (which offers it's own desktop software for Windows), that allows forcustom 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.

Re: Virtual Background for Webinars

Thanks, but I'm a Mac user looking for solutions... this is an already-established feature with ZOOM & I'm disappointed that "Go-To-Meeting" doesn't offer the same benefit.

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!

Great Idea, I too am looking for such a feature.. Its a shame they are not listening and being competitive.

Agree with this feature being a must.

As companies have moved to remote work at home, this would be a tremendous bonus.

When will this feature be available?
