You can host meetings on Connect4 in a variety of ways whether it be in person, via a phonecall, using a third party video platform like Zoom or using Connect4's own web based video conferencing.

You can blur your native Connect4 video or add a background to your Connect4 calls for free by utilising a third party tool such as SnapCamera or Mmhmm.

How to blur your background

Simply select the blur icon on your screen whilst in a native Connect4 video call.

How to change your video background on Connect4 with Mmhmm

  1. Firstly download third party tool Mmhmm, which is a video presentation app.

  3. Give it a try with your Personal Pod meeting room- by selecting 'My personal pod'.

  4. Click the big mint green, 'Connect' button.

  5. Change Video camera device

Note: the Mmhmm app needs to be open in order for the Connect4 video feed to show. You also change your background via the Mmhmm application as opposed to within Connect4.
