These types of things take more battery usage. It’s my recommendation to use this when your battery health is good. If your battery is low and you use it then you may be facing problems like your filter or effect doesn’t work on other participants’ screens, Maybe your video is cutting on other participants’ screens like a buffering video.

You can’t use an immersive background on your video if you are using android or ios. You can only use an immersive background when you are using Google meet on a computer.
