Have you been dreaming of an island getaway? If the cold winter months are getting to you and you aren’t able to make time for a sunny escape, changing your background on Zoom may be the next best thing. Whether you’re changing your background because you’re yearning for a warm sunny vacation, or simply just because you love the ocean, you will be sure to find a Zoom background that speaks to you here. In this article, we’ll teach you all about Zoom’s background feature in addition to everything you need to know about changing your background on Zoom. 

What is the virtual background feature in Zoom? 

The virtual background feature in Zoom makes it possible for you to display an image or video as your background as opposed to what’s actually behind you. This means that you can choose a stunning image of a beach as your background during your next Zoom meeting. In order to leverage this feature, you must use a green screen so Zoom can detect the difference between you and your background. This will result in a clearer picture that is less grainy. 

How to change your Zoom background on the desktop app:

Before joining a meeting:

  1. Download the Zoom app if you haven’t already. 
  2. Open the app and sign-in or create an account if you’re new. 
  3. Select your profile picture then select Settings. 
  4. On the left, select the Virtual Background tab. 
  5. When in the Virtual Background settings, select one of Zooms default images or upload your own. 
  6. To add your own image or video, click the + icon to upload your image from your computer. 
  7. If you have a green screen setup, you can select that feature to enhance the quality of your background. 

After joining a meeting:

  1. At the bottom of your screen, select the up arrow beside Stop Video
  2. Select Change Virtual Background
  3. When in the Virtual Background settings, select one of Zooms default images or upload your own.
  4. To add your own image or video, click the + icon to upload your image from your computer. 
  5. If you have a green screen setup, you can select that feature to enhance the quality of your background.
