Collaborate – Using custom ‘Snap Camera’ backgrounds

Collaborate does not have the ability to give you a custom background like you can with Teams. In order to blur out your background or show something else behind you, then SnapChat’s Snap Camera can help you.

Below are a variety of backgrounds that can be used as Virtual Backgrounds when sharing your video in Collaborate. To set up Virtual Background watch this video.
