Google Meet, the video conferencing app that’s similar to Skype or Facetime, recently updated its software with an additional feature that helps remove distracting backgrounds from the video calling process. When someone on your Google Meet call wears glasses or headgear, their image will be completely blurred, as if they were wearing a full-body poncho with no distinguishing features whatsoever. This background blur feature may work wonders for those who are balding and who wear hats—their heads will be perfectly blurred so that the hat won’t be the first thing noticed when they speak on camera during their conference call.

New Background Blur Feature in Google Meet
If you’ve ever tried to use a virtual background on Google Meet, you know that it doesn’t work well if you’re wearing glasses or a hat. But all that is about to change with Google’s new background blur feature. With this new feature, you can now blur your background even if you’re wearing glasses or a hat. Plus, the blur is adjustable so you can get it just right.
This is going to help many people
Are you someone who likes to rock a dope pair of glasses or a fresh new snapback, but feel self-conscious about how you look on video calls? Well, Google Meet is here to help. The company has announced an update to its background blur feature that will now work better for those with headgear and eyewear. Previously, it was difficult to get the background blur to cover up all of your hair. Now you can choose from four different blurring levels (high, medium, low and off) in order to ensure that your headgear or eyewear are completely covered up by the blurred image so people can focus on what’s in front of them: YOU!
How does it work?
With Google Meet’s new background blur feature, you can now wear your favorite pair of glasses or headgear without worrying about how it will look on camera. Just select the Blur my background option in your settings before joining a meeting, and your video will be automatically blurred. If you need to adjust the blur, you can do so by clicking on the … menu in the top right corner of your screen during a meeting and selecting Adjust Background Blur.
If you’ve ever been on a video call wearing glasses or a hat, you know that the blurriness can be frustrating. But thanks to Google Meet’s new background blur feature, that’s a thing of the past. Now, when you turn on background blur, your glasses and headgear will be automatically blurred so you can focus on the conversation. And if you’re still not satisfied with the results, you can always adjust the amount of blurriness manually.
Future implications for this feature
This new feature from Google Meet will have major implications for those who wear headgear or eyewear. With the background now blurred, it will be much easier for these individuals to participate in video meetings without feeling self-conscious. Additionally, this will make it easier for others to focus on the individual during a meeting, as there will be fewer distractions.

If you wear glasses or headgear, you know that sometimes your background can be a little distracting on video calls. Google is aware of this and has stepped up its background blur game in the latest update to Google Meet. Now, you can blur your entire background, or just certain parts of it. Plus, if you have multiple people in your meeting, you can choose to blur their backgrounds as well. This is a great way to keep everyone’s attention focused on the person who is speaking.
See how it works
If you’ve ever used Google Meet, you know that one of its best features is the ability to blur your background. This is great for video calls when you want to focus on your face and not what’s behind you. But what about those times when you’re wearing headgear or eyewear? For example, if you’re at a protest or work in healthcare. Now Google Meet has added a way to blur out both the headgear and eyewear so it’s just you that people see on their screens. The only downside is that it can’t be used as a filter in Gboard (to cover up other things) which would have been even better!
Think about situations where this would be helpful
There are many situations where this would be helpful. For example, if you are a doctor and you are on a video call with a patient, you may want to blur your background so that the patient cannot see your home office. Or, if you are a lawyer on a video call with a client, you may want to blur your background so that the client cannot see your personal belongings in your home office. This feature is also helpful for people who wear glasses or hats, as it can help to disguise their appearance.
