To change the background scene, tap the "More" button in the bottom right corner of the Calm app home screen and then tap "Scenes" to access our "Scenes" menu. If this option isn't available for you, please tap the Mountain icon on your Calm app's home screen.
In the Scenes menu, you will see our background scene options. Simply scroll through the scene options provided and tap any that you would like to download. Once you've downloaded a new scene, swipe left or right on the home screen image to change your current scene.
You may also adjust the Play sounds outside of app option by tapping the duration selector (such '30 min') and choosing how long you'd like a scene to play. This determines how long the scene will play once you exit the app, so if you select the '0 min' option, the sounds will not play outside of the app at all after you exit. If you start a session with a duration above 0 min selected, then, when your session ends, the scene will play for the duration you choose. For example, if you choose '1 hour' and then listen to a Sleep Story, the scene sounds will continue to play for 1 hour after the story ends.
You can also adjust the volume of the background sounds in the "Scenes" menu. To do so, slide the Scene Volume bar left and right to whatever level you prefer. If you do not wish to have any scene sounds in the app, you can move the slider all the way to the left or choose one of our two scenes that do not include any sound (Silent Earth and Silent Clouds).
Please note that your selected scene will only accompany meditation sessions and does not play in the background of our Sleep Stories.
