The Socialive iOS app now supports virtual or blurred backgrounds! Add any background from your iPhone or iPad to a livestream or internal recording to hide the clutter behind you or just stay on company brand. You can use the Virtual Background feature with or without the use of a green screen behind you. 

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.




Effects and Virtual Backgrounds are only supported on these devices:

  • iPhone 11 and above
  • iPhone SE (3rd Gen)
