Google Meet may soon allow users to blur background during video calls
Google Meet is reportedly working on a new feature that will blur users' background during a video call. The development was reportedly spotted in the APK teardown of Google Meet version 41.5 for Android. It is also possible that the feature may not be rolled out to users at all as Google seems to be only testing it right now. Whereas, if the feature is indeed released, Google Meet will still be far behind competitors such as Microsoft Teams that already provides the option to blur the background.
According to a report, the APK teardown of the Google Meet version 41.5 for Android hinted that the company is looking at the option to automatically blur the background during a Meet call. The benefits of this feature include a more aesthetically pleasing look as well as hiding the chaotic elements in the background. However, it appears that the Google Meet version 41.5 is currently limited to only certain regions. In India, Android users can currently download/update Google Meet version 41.0 via Google Play Store.
