What's new in WeVideo for Schools

Ta-ta, backgrounds

November 2022

Easily remove and replace video backgrounds in our iOS app with just a few taps. Talk about an A+ feature for student assignments. PLUS, some extra credit for ya — we've added the power of "copy to web" to the Classroom space. Start projects in the app (and, y'know, use the background remover), then finish them in the Classroom editor!
