Unsplash backgrounds

You can now choose from over 3.5 million high-resolution photos to make your Session background wallpaper.

Session just released a new native product integration with Unsplash that powers the ability for users to search the largest repository of free high-resolution photos on the internet and make any photo their custom Session wallpaper.

Give it a try:

  • As a host, select "Customize room" from the three-dot menu at the bottom of the screen.

  • Select "Background"

  • Select "Search"

  • Write keywords into the search bar

  • Pick any photo to make it your wallpaper
