Background Updates to Meet

Google Meet has been receiving some updates over the last few months. Here is the latest update to change your video background! 

Open Background Settings:

Before Joining Meet:

  • Click the shaded person icon in the lower right corner of your selfie video.

  • This will pop-up to select your background image.

After Joining Meet:

  • Click the 3 dots in the lower right corner and then click “Change background”.

  • You will see the options available. The top row is the blur background options and the bottom lists images you can choose. The ability to upload your own will come later when Admin gets the ability to disable this for specific school groups.

Blur Background:

  • Click the first “Blur” option. This is for a slight blurring of the background.

  • Click the second “Blur” option. This is for a heavy blurring of the background.

Set Background Image:

  • Click on any image listed. It will set that as your background.

Reset Background to No Blur or Image:

  • Click the 🚫icon to remove any background you previously added.

Any blur or image you set will be saved in your next Meet session.
