New: Custom Virtual Backgrounds

AUTHOR: The Whereby team

Now you can take your customization to a whole new level with custom virtual backgrounds. Specify the image that you want to appear as the virtual background for your call participants, whether itโ€™s your own branding or some fun scenery.

To set a custom virtual background in your call, simply add our new URL parameter to your roomURL when embedding a room into your web page or app.


Just add the image url to the parameter and it will be set as the virtual background when the participants join the call. Make sure that your image is in either jpeg, png, WebP or AVIF format, is 1280 x 720 resolution and is retrievable using CORS.

Enjoy your new, more personalised video calls!

p.s. This is just phase 1 of custom virtual backgrounds, keep your eyes peeled for more in the future
