Just one more perk of the SoWork Metaverse is that your meeting now has advanced privacy through our in-house background blurring! By reading this article you'll be a pro at customizing your video.

🚀 Walkthrough

Open the settings cog in your video preview in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen by clicking on it.

Select your desired background blur strength

*Note: You will only see your desired blur effect if your video is on, not when only your character is visible in the video preview.

Why use a background blur?

Background blurring adds an additional layer of privacy to your SoWork Office so you no longer have to have your home or working space broadcast to your teammates!
