    That is exciting, but XFCE being what it is, it'll be a slow process. I would love to see it work, and may consider using XFCE again when they get even experimental Wayland support.

        Have any mainstream video call apps started using this feature yet? Skype/teams/slack/zoom etc? Arguably I hate all of them, but in job interviews there is little choice

          Zoom has, as of a little over a month ago, and it seems to work quite nicely.

          I've seen it work in Teams but also fail some time later with the exact same setup.
