Don’t forget about Shakira and J.Lo’s 2020 showstopper.
Super Bowl Sunday is all about food, commercials, hanging out with friends, and tuning into the game if you’re so inclined. If you're hosting a virtual viewing party on Zoom or just looking to show off your team pride during your next video call, you can add a football-themed background that'll transport you to the field for the star-studded sporting event. From the star quarterbacks to scenes from last year's halftime show (remember the Weeknd in that maze?), here are 16 Super Bowl Zoom backgrounds that you can use for the big day.
Fans across the country are gearing up for the 2022 Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 13. Whether you’re in it to see football's biggest event of the year — the Cincinnati Bengals take vs the Los Angeles Rams — or just show up for the dips and the halftime show, you want to do it in style. Of course, you'll want to make sure you've got your snacks prepped (again, dips), but once that's set, you'll also want to up your Super Bowl Zoom aesthetic if you’re partying it up virtually. Take it to the next level with a virtual background that'll swap out your living room for a photo that'll make you wanna yell, "Sports!"
To get started using Zoom's virtual background feature, you'll need to have a PC or Mac computer with Zoom version 4.6.0, or the Zoom mobile app for iOS, which is compatible with iPhone 8 or later and fifth generation iPad or later.
Once you've created an account and signed into Zoom, you can change your virtual background by heading to Settings and selecting the Virtual Background tab. You'll be able to use some of Zoom's backdrops or upload your own with a high-res image or video from royalty-free image services like Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels.
