How to add a virtual background to your camera bubble

Add the image of your choice for a more polished background. 🎥

Virtual backgrounds make it easy to feel confident and comfortable when recording a loom with your video on. They're available on the Loom desktop app and Loom Chrome extension when recording in screen + camera mode (camera-only mode soon to come!).

Here's how to add a virtual background while recording:

  1. Open your Loom desktop app or Chrome extension. Make sure you're recording in screen + camera mode.
  2. Click on the camera settings icon below your camera bubble.
  3. Select from preset images, blur, and solid color options and start recording! You can change the background while recording if you want.


Can I add my own custom options?

Not right now, but we're working on it. Stay tuned!

Can I have virtual background in camera-only mode?
Nope. We're working on adding virtual backgrounds to cam-only mode, but right now you can only add backgrounds to your camera bubble in screen + cam mode.
