background in GTW

Client gave the idea of ​​having a "background" in GTW, just like GTM. Then the participant could change the background screen as he wanted.

This is already an option for GoToWebinar organizers using ChromaCam just like GoToMeeting: https://support.goto.com/webinar/help/how-do-i-change-my-webcam-background 

 

I am leaving this as an Idea still as it is not available to panelists and attendees that do not have their own paid account.

Our presenters are often caught off guard that they can't blur their background or use a virtual background.  "I do it on Zoom all the time, disappointing I can't do it here." We would love this option to be more readily and easily available.

Agree with UB Alumni Caree.

We have speakers from other organizations join us for webinars and it'd be nice to not have to ask them to download a separate third party service. Some companies don't allow their employees to just download all types of stuff.

Hi team,

 

Just bumping this thread to see if we have any updates at all, or a timeline for this release? Every panellist we ever have in our webinars ask for this and are so surprised when we have to advise it is not available natively 😅 Would like to keep using GTW for our webinars, a timeline on release would be great.

 

Thanks!
