Samba Live 5.21

Aug 23, 2021 8:00:00 AM

Available from: 22 August 2021

With Samba Live 5.21, we introduce our brand new Virtual Backgrounds. You can choose between two blurred backgrounds or a predefined set of eight images (from serious office spaces to relaxing beaches). All of them are perfect for limiting distractions from your background or making video conferences more fun.

To start using one of the backgrounds, click on the Settings-icon in the sidebar and choose "Virtual background".

Choose a virtual background in Samba Live.Our brand new Virtual Backgrounds allow you to limit distractions or add some fun to your video conferences.

Virtual Backgrounds are currently in beta and not available on Safari yet. However, we are working hard to add custom backgrounds and support for all modern browsers. Please reach out to us if you have any feedback or ideas for improvements.

Additionally, this update covers improvements to the branding settings and more minor bug fixes.
