Connecting to a Google Meet, and wish you could drop in a virtual background like Zoomers do? If you read Dr. Bruce Ellis’ blog entry, Creating Virtual Backgrounds for Zoom, you know what I mean. You can add a virtual background to Zoom with ease. Can you do the same with Google Meet? In this blog entry, we explore two possible solutions. Let’s find out.
Got the Virtual Background Power?When my primary computer died in March, 2020, I had a moment of fright. Would I have to clean up my home office? Would I have to venture out and try to find a Dollar Tree green tablecloth as a cheap green screen? The answer was, “Yes, I did have to clean up my office.” My old Dell didn’t have the graphics card to handle virtual backgrounds for Zoom.
“Wait a second, I thought we were talking about Google Meet?” you may be saying to yourself. And, yes, that’s true. We aren’t worrying about the Zoomers with their fancy computers. We need solutions that work on Chromebooks, or low-end computers like mine. But most may not know about a way to create virtual backgrounds for Google Meet.
