Google Meet has a background blur feature that blur the background or mask it with an image. That is the magnitude of its effects. The fact that Google Meet is for professional use is therefore a reason to go no further than that.
That said, you can use a virtual webcam app with Google Meet and Snap Camera is an excellent choice.
Use Snap Camera with Google Meet
Snap Camera is free and is a virtual camera that can be activated and streamed to Google Meet.
Install Snap Camera
Snap Camera is a desktop app that needs to be installed, and set up before you can use it in Google Meet.
- Download and install Snap Camera from the Snap camera official website.
- Open the app and click on the gear icon at the top right.
- Choose your webcam from the fall.
- Return to the app and select the effect you want to use.
- Set up an app the way you want to use it it in Google Meet.
Check camera permissions
On Windows 10, it’s a good idea to check and make sure apps are allowed to use the webcam.
- Open the Configuration application with keyboard shortcut Win + I.
- go to Privacy.
- Select the Tab camara.
- Make sure that the Allow apps access to your camera version.
Snap Camera in Google Meet
You are now ready to use Snap Camera in Google Meet.
- Come together or start a meeting in Google Meet.
- Click on the more options button (three dots).
- Choose Settings from the menu.
- Go to Video tab.
- Select Snap Camera from the fall.
- Return to the meeting and Snap Camera will load the meeting.
If the camera view in Snap Camera is black, turn off apps that can use the camera. Additionally, it may help to discontinue apps like Netflix, Hulu, or Disney Plus. For some reason, they tend to interfere with Snap Camera.
If you still see a black camera view in Snap Camera, turn on Allow apps allow your camera change in the Windows 10 Settings Off and On app again.
You should also make sure that Chrome has access to the webcam, as does Google Meet.
Snap Camera works with most systems but not all or older ones. It has some system requirements which are listed on the download page. It works on both Windows 10 (64 bit) and macOS (10.3 and later), requires a Core i3 or later, and Intel HD Graphics 4000 or Nvidia GeForce 710 or AMD Radeon HD 6450, or later. Your screen also needs to support 1280 × 768 or higher resolution (most newer systems do).
