Virtual backgrounds for Linux

still can't manage to install the virtual background for the Linux client. A virtual background is also not possible in a browser session.

This is essential.

Number of Linux users who uses webex is really high and need such feature.

    Linux users feel like Second-class citizens. I don't understand why Zoom and Teams can provide this feature for Linux, why not Webex?

    We need virtual/blurred background when joining from browser, too. We have a lot of home-office and mobile users that need this feature while using the chrome browser on linux. (1 of 2 comments)

    It is not as important as the chat function, but nevertheless something that makes us paying(!) Linux users feel second class. Zoom has it, BBB has it, even Teams I think.
