Background blur for Google Meet

Description from extension meta

Blurs out your background during a Google Meet or Hangouts video call.

Image from store Background blur for Google Meet
Description from store Have to take a video call, but don't want people to be distracted by your background? Use this free chrome extension that blurs out your background during a Google Meet or Hangouts video call. * Control your desired level of blur: Use the slider to change the amount of background blur. * Privacy focused: All image processing happens locally in your browser. * On / Off switch: Easily turn the background blur on or off during a call using the On / Off switch at the top left of your screen. If you want to completely turn off the extension, go to chrome://extension and switch the extension off, then click reload on any active Google Meet or Hangouts call. This chrome extension works thanks to Google's open source TensorFlow JS and Bodypix model which allow for image segmentation to occur entirely within your browser, without a server. Known issues: - If you switch tabs, your video will stop. This is to preserve battery life. - If you have a high resolution video camera, this chrome extension may lower your video resolution to perform well. - Sometimes the background blur doesn't accurately or consistently blur out all parts of the background. Instructions: 1. Install the chrome extension by clicking the “Add to Chrome” button at the top of this page. 2. Go to meet.google.com or hangouts.google.com and start or join a video call. 3. Click the Blur: Off / On button at the top left of your screen to turn the background blur effect off or on. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] . We hope that you enjoy using it.

  • (2020-10-09) Amy Zhu: I think this was great! Thank you for creating this since I have a really messy background 😅
  • (2020-10-09) Ok stop it: I love how this extension lags me so much and when i turn it off it replays my motions in fast motion and everyone in the class is like : HOW ARE THEY SO FAST?
  • (2020-10-09) Oluwatobi Abraham: It is Okay but the problem is that it sometimes cover your face so i will give it 3 stars
  • (2020-10-07) iiigraceee: Very laggy and didn't blur everything, but it was fine.
  • (2020-10-07) Lily: Only blurred the left side of my image and was too slow. It would be easier if I could choose which part to blur.😞
  • (2020-10-06) Garrett the Carrot: This is not efficient. I'm sorry, but it only blurred out the sides of my screen, not the top, bottom, or middle. It also slowed down my own movement when it was on. I would turn around and my screen would be showing what I was doing before. I hate that. I suggest taking this down, fixing these mistakes, and putting it back up again. I will definitely be uninstalling this extension. Thanks for trying, I guess.
  • (2020-10-06) Rishi Kanchi: It works perfectly on Microsoft edge, no problems whatsoever. On chrome, however, it is too laggy to use. This is pretty ironic because this is the *chrome* web store but it works better on Microsoft Edge. I would love it if you added this extention into the microsoft edge extention store.
  • (2020-10-05) Ted Stewart: Doesn't blur out the background totally even in the max setting.
