Allow video background to be blurred in 'meet now' and chat\'video call'
Being able to blur the video background when joining a scheduled meeting is great. I would like to have the same control when using "meet now" within a channel and when using the "video call" within a chat.
It seems bizarre that you cannot activate video blur / background before accepting a video call (non meeting) - The reasons for using the blur in a meeting is just the same in a direct video call. I agree with a comment below that it be good to expand this feature be able to set it as a default choice.
With the current global change in working, more and more of us are not in the office and might prefer to not showcase our kitchen or living room to a work colleague or client!
Or, perhaps, allow the user to default video background to blur always can solve this problem as well.
Actually it does not make any sense to omit Meet Now or ad-hoc call from Blur - it s when you can't plan that blur is more required, if I have a meeting scheduled for tomorrow I have time to find a good spot for the call - but someone ask me to join a meeting suddenly - thats when i need to get into the "zone”and out of the clutter and happenings.
