Can you hide your image on FaceTime?

yes, we can do it on Facetime Video call. Hiding backgroud during video call makes your Video call experience much better. But still, if you don’t want to see your Face even in Video Call then Turn off from FaceTime app as you start calling. or Anytime you can Turn off and Turn on the Camera for FaceTime in Video call.

Can I change your FaceTime background on Mac?

No, we can’t set different backgroud like Zoom, Microsoft Team, or Other video calling app. Right now in FaceTime’s latest feature FaceTime mac only allow making Backgroud blur before start call or During Call.

If you want this feature highly required during the call then you must have to switch to Other App [Zoom, Microsoft Team].
