As much as you want to look your best on your daily Zoom meetings with your workmates, your background may say otherwise. If you have little kids who are causing a ruckus around your home—which is, unfortunately, their favorite thing to do—the state of your living space may not always be up to snuff. But instead of going to so much trouble finding a new area in your home where you can take meetings, you can transport yourself to a different place—virtually.
XSplit VCam is an app that acts as a green screen, allowing you to blur, remove, and replace your background with just a few clicks. Compatible with Zoom, Skype, Discord, Google Hangouts, WeChat, Viber, Slack, and GoToMeeting, all you have to do is open the video app of your choice, add XSplit VCam as the camera source, choose a background or just blur it, and you’re all set. You also have the option to give your webcam a DLSR or portrait mode style effect with the built-in blur slider, enhancing the overall picture quality.
Here’s a quick demo:
Whether you’re conducting a presentation, doing a virtual interview, or having a meeting, this app can help you and your background look more put together. For a limited time, you can get a lifetime subscription to the XSplit VCam Windows version for only $19.99.
