Blur on a Tablet


Judging from the number of posts on the subject and the results that come back from a google search, I'm not expecting great things, here, but let's give it a whirl!


All I want is a tablet that will support blurred background in Zoom. That's all I want. I don't want fancy filters or backgrounds that look like Hogwarts or whatever. I just want the blur to work.


Doesn't work on my Macbook. Fair enough, it's older. Bought a Galaxy S6 Lite. No love. Virtual backgrounds don't work at all. Returned it, bought a Surface Pro X. Virtual Backgrounds work, but no blur.


Anyone using Zoom on a tablet and consistently getting blur to work? If so, what kind of tablet?


Thanks very much!
