Virtual background for Webex on Windows

With current work from home scenario, this is a must have for remote workers.

    Just buy xsplit.com and integrate it... Currently my Quad i7 doesn't support Webex blur/background... that's ridiculous, considering it works with the Z and MS...

    I would like the option of using a green screen for virtual backgrounds. It makes a much crisper background.

    I would like as well to be able to customize WebEx backgrounds. Please enable that for all!!!

    Thanks for considering this request.

    There is an idea to make WebEx virtual Background backwards compatible. This feature is desired.

    Backgrounds, for perfectly working machines that have i7 processors <4000 series, do not work. Yet they worked all summer. Backgrounds are available on competing meeting applications and so this has now become a drawback. There are 'levels' of background, that may require a more powerful processor, but simple images or company logos, should not mean a costly upgrade, and consignment of good PCs/Laptops, to landfills. Sustainability is important. We are not all 'gamers' LOL!

    Webex Teams app already has this, no? Though the backgrounds do not blend in very naturally in video calls, which is a shame.

    Having the possibility to add company themed backgrounds to the default selection as admin via the control hub would be a really nice add-on too!

    Getting several end users say their virtual backgrounds spike CPU usage and then go white...definitely need to fix this...

    This feature is extremely useful.

    However, the high specifications required for the device is a drawback.

    My company uses a corporate version of Webex on Windows. This version allows the Personal Room to upload pictures for background. However, the backgrounds are not selectable. So sad.

    Thank you for adding the Virtual background. Webex seems to use a lot of CPU, and the load is light with Zoom. It would be helpful if you could tune up on this point.

    It looks like Webex added support for a few backgrounds. I'm hoping they will allow users to upload custom backgrounds too.

    I'm surprised its not available for mac and windows after the demand in conferencing from the pandamic. You would think this would be a priority
