Is it possible to hide the virtual background?

Description
Is it possible to hide the virtual background menu item from the More menu programmatically or using Zoom account settings?

Which Android Meeting SDK version?
Zoom Android SDK v5.7.1.1266

Thanks!

Hey @venkat,

Thanks for using the dev forum!

Yes, you can disable virtual backgrounds in your account settings by visting Zoom.us and navigating to settings → In Meeting (advanced) → Virtual backgrounds.

Thanks!

Hi @Michael_Condon, Thanks for the update.

  1. Is there any option/SDK method to hide virtual background using Android Zoom SDK programmatically?

  2. Also observed that virtual background option is not available for some mobile devices
    a. OnePlus7 with OS 11 - Showing virtual background option
    b. Realme2 Pro with OS 10 - Not showing virtual background option

So, this option will not be available for all Android versions?

Could you please confirm.

I have identified that by using below setting the virtual background option is not showing
MeetingSettingsHelper. enable720p(true)
But this method is already deprecated.

Thanks.

Hi @venkat,

Unfortunately there is no way to do this programmatically.

Since the Zoom client has some system requirements for virtual backgrounds, these will also apply to the Meeting SDK. More information can be found here.

I have identified that by using below setting the virtual background option is not showing
MeetingSettingsHelper. enable720p(true)

Currently, virtual backgrounds are not compatible with the 720p setting.

Thanks!

@jon.lieblich thanks for the update and confirmation.
