Why you’d use it 

Having the ability to blur or replace your meeting backgrounds can help you show more of your personality, or help hide your surroundings if that’s your preference. 

Additional details 

Support for replacing your background with a custom image on Android and support for iOS will be coming soon; we’ll announce on the Google Workspace Updates blog when they become available.
