7 Best Background Remover Apps for Android

You don’t need expensive professional photo editing software on a PC today to remove background from photos. There are many easy-to-use backgrounds remove apps for Android you can use instead.

While smartphone cameras are great, you can’t help getting photobombed by someone or something in the background. That’s when background remover apps come in handy. Not only can you remove the background, but also replace it with something much better looking.

Let us see some of the best background remover apps for Android.

Remove.bg

remove.bg Android app

Remove.bg is a simple app because it simply loads up the remove.bg website as an app on your phone. It adds the convenience of an app, so you don’t have to fire up your browser and point it to the web service each time you want to remove background from a photo.

There’s a small edit button on the final photo that you can use to do some basic editing. You can add different backgrounds and manually remove certain parts.

Pros

  • Simple
  • Lightweight
  • Automatic background removal
  • No ads
  • Basic editing

Cons

  • Images have to be uploaded

Download: Remove.bg (Freemium)

Erase bg

erase.bg Android app

Just like the remove.bg Android app, the erase.bg Android app merely loads up the online service inside the app. You are greeted with the colorful Upload button, just as on the website. Simply upload the photo and the app will remove the background as best as it can.

You do get a decent selection of backgrounds you can apply, but there’s no manual removal. There’s not much else to the app, which can be a good thing if you’re simply looking for a background remover app.

Pros

  • Simple
  • Lightweight
  • Automatic background removal
  • No ads

Cons

  • Images have to be uploaded
  • No manual selection

Background Eraser Photo Editor

Background Eraser Photo Editor

Inshot Inc. is a popular name when it comes to media tools on Android. They make everything from video editors to downloaders, as well as image editing tools. Background Eraser Photo Editor is also a part of this group of apps.

The app has a paid subscription that removes ads and unlocks additional features. However, the free version works pretty well and consistently produces desired results more often than not. That, of course, also depends on the complexity of the image. There are plenty of manual editing features as well.

Pros

  • Automatic background removal
  • Decent selection of backgrounds
  • Extra editing features

Cons

  • Contains ads
  • Locked-up premium features

PhotoRoom Studio Photo Editor

PhotoRoom Studio Photo Editor

PhotoRoom Studio is one of the more feature-packed background remover apps for Android. With one tap, the app will separate the foreground from the background, and more often than not, it does a good job. The app offers plenty of background replacements as well as frames and borders.

Want yourself featured on a magazine cover? You can do that quite easily and for free with PhotoRoom Studio. Only some features are free, however, and many of them are locked behind a paid subscription. That said, those “some” features are actually a lot that you get for free.

Pros

  • Automatic background removal
  • Huge selection of backgrounds
  • A decent set of editing features

Cons

  • No manual selection
  • Many features require a subscription

Pixomatic Background Eraser

Pixomatic Background Eraser

Pixomatic is another feature-packed background remover app for Android. The range of features is wide enough that you can call this a decent photo editor, not simply a background remover. The downside, or upside depending on what you prefer, is that there’s no automatic background removal. You’ll have to manually select the part of the image you want to cut out.

The brush size is adjustable, and you can be very precise with the selection area. Once you’ve separated the foreground from the background, you have a plethora of options to choose from. From adding text and manipulating hair to blending images together, Pixomatic gives you a lot of options to create your next profile picture.

Pros

  • No automatic background removal
  • Additional editing features

Cons

  • Free version has ads
  • Many features require a subscription

TouchRetouch

remove objects from background

TouchRetouch isn’t your typical background remover. It only removes certain objects and is more like the magic eraser feature on Google Pixel phones. This is great when you already have a good picture, save for those wires in the background or some embarrassing thing in the background.

Not only the photobombers and traffic lights in the background, but you can also remove pimples, skin blemishes, scratches, etc. from the foreground to make things look better. You do have to select the object manually, but you don’t need to be very precise about it. Simply give the app a rough selection of what you want to be removed, and it will do it. All of that doesn’t come cheap though as it is a paid app.

Pros

  • No automatic background removal
  • Removes objects from the background and foreground

Cons

  • Paid app, no free trial

Download: TouchRetouch ($1.99)

Picsart Photo and Video Editor

Picsart Photo and Video Editor

As you might have guessed from the name, Picsart is much more than a simple background remover app. Many of you probably already use it as well. Picsart is one of the most popular and feature-packed photo editor apps on Android and it has been around for a while, regularly gaining even more features.

Of course, Picsart also lets you remove background from photos and replace it with something cool. You have to manually select it, however. Having used automatic background removers, I’d say the manual selection is actually better in many cases when the distinction between foreground and background isn’t very clear.

Pros

  • No automatic background removal
  • Huge selection of backgrounds
  • A plethora of editing options

Cons

  • Premium features
  • Contains ads

Download: Picsart Photo and Video Editor (Freemium)

Those are the best apps that you can use if you frequently find yourself wanting to remove background from your photos. Some of them are actually useful for many other things apart from that. There are plenty of other background remover apps for Android on the Play Store.
