How to add a virtual background to your camera bubble

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

⚠️ Please note that we're currently rolling out virtual backgrounds to all users, but it's not live to everyone yet. If you don't see the option to add a virtual background now, check back soon!

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.
