Using Effects and Virtual Backgrounds in the Socialive iOS App

Use the blur background effect or select an image as your virtual background when participating in a broadcast or when capturing an internal recording with the Socialive iOS app. This article provides instructions on how to use virtual backgrounds in the Socialive iOS app.

Prerequisites

Effects and Virtual Backgrounds are only supported on these devices:

Process

In the Green Room

  1. In the Green Room lobby or in the Green Room, tap the Settings button on the bottom-right corner.
  2. In the pop-up, tap Background. From here, you can:
