How to create Hands overlay from mobile

The Hands overlay feature allows  you to provide rich, natural, intuitive instructions using your hands.

When being in a call, the Hands overlay feature is activated in the tools menu. Before activating the Hands overlay make sure you have access to an evenly colored surface, for example a wall or floor. After that, point the camera towards the evenly colored surface and place your hand in between. As a result, the app will separate your hand from the background and overlay it on the top on the video stream from the other user.

The Hands Overlay feature allows you to provide rich, natural, and intuitive instructions using your hands and other objects. As a result, it allows you to show how complex actions are performed, point and give directions that are much more effective that with only voice and video.
