PROTIPS:

  • Make sure you use the platform (desktop vs. mobile) each background is optimized for to ensure highest quality.
  • For desktop:
    • In the “Choose Virtual Background” settings menu, un-check the “mirror my video” option so words, logos, etc. read left-to-right (not mirrored/right-to-left).
    • Find a solid-colored, plain wall to set up in front of for the best virtual background quality. If you don’t have a solid wall or green screen, in the “Choose Virtual Background” settings menu, un-check the “I have a green screen” option.
  • For mobile: To save + easily access images, tap and hold your finger on the image within the Dropbox App to reveal the “Save to Camera Roll” option.

Also, if you’re looking to apply virtual backgrounds on WebEx and Skype on desktop, you’ll have to tap into OBS. Here is a step-by-step guide.

Happy video conferencing!
