Blurring your background makes your surroundings appear out of focus so people can't see the details of what's going on behind you. Virtual backgrounds completely replace your surroundings with one of the preset backgrounds.
On a Mac, you can blur your background in meetings and events using the Webex Meetings desktop app. On iOS devices, you can use blurred or virtual backgrounds in meetings, events, and training sessions using the Webex Meetings mobile app.
For WBS40.6 sites and later, you can blur your background before you join a meeting or during a meeting.
To use blurred backgrounds, your Mac must be an iMac version 12.2 or later with macOS High Sierra (version 10.13) or later and have a processor with more than two cores.
You can blur your background before you join or at any time during the meeting.
To use virtual backgrounds for WBS40.2 sites and earlier, your site administrator needs to enable Display user avatars in the meeting client (Meetings) in Common Site Settings.
Virtual backgrounds and background blurring are supported only on the following iOS devices:
iPhone 7 or later

When you're ready for everyone in the meeting to see your background, tap Apply. Webex remembers your selection for your next meeting.
