Hi @ashishprusty 


After reviewing the specifications of your processor it shows to be a 2nd generation core I5. For virtual backgrounds without a green screen, we require a 6th generation i5, i7, or i9. Here is a link to a support article with more details.


Please let us know if you have any other questions.
