Users can now take their conferencing anywhere they imagine using preloaded digital backgrounds or backgrounds they upload. This feature is available to users that subscribe to FreeConferenceCall.com’s Pay What You Can.
“We created Virtual Backgrounds for both businesses and private users.” said David Erickson, CEO of FreeConferenceCall.com “It’s perfect for when you’re working remotely, working in places with busy backgrounds, or when you just want to have fun.”
Virtual Backgrounds are an exciting, fun way to communicate online. This feature lets users replace their in-person background with a digital background. Virtual backgrounds can also work in professional settings to hide backgrounds or add branding to meetings with customers or partners.
The technology powering FreeConferenceCall.com’s Virtual Backgrounds identifies the speaker(s) during a video conference and renders a background that appears behind the user(s).
How To Enable Virtual Backgrounds
After updating or downloading the latest version of the desktop app, users can enable virtual backgrounds during any video conference.
