How to change background in BlueJeans

With the increase in the use of video calling and conference tools, there might have been instances when you might have used Zoom. The service saw its user base rise to nearly three times that of Microsoft’s Teams with a total volume amounting to over 4.84 million by the end of March.

However, not everything about Zoom is to be praised. There have been severe privacy flaws regarding the video conferencing tool including being caught sending user analytics data to Facebook, then a bug found to take control of a user’s microphone or webcam, and lastly, hackers breaking into private meetings and harassing attendees.

With so many vulnerabilities to its name, users are slowly moving away from Zoom to another platform – BlueJeans, which offers calls that are encrypted by default.

But what if you’re using BlueJeans for your daily routine and are missing Zoom’s most important tool – to change the background of your video feed. Luckily for you, we’ve prepared the following guide which will help you modify backgrounds on the BlueJeans app on your PC.
