Video conferencing platforms like Zoom make it easy to stay connected with your friends, classmates, or co-workers when you can't be there IRL. You can even spice up your calls with a virtual background, which will swap out your bedroom for a cool image. If you're looking for fun backdrops to entertain your pals, check out these 12 food-themed Zoom backgrounds that feature your favorite bites.
Many popular food chains, such as Hardee's, Carl's Jr., Baskin-Robbins, and Taco Bell, have tasty-looking backgrounds you can use on your next video call. You could jazz up your virtual meeting with everything from close-ups of burgers to pics of hot sauce popsicles. To use the backdrops, you'll need to save the images to your computer or phone and upload them as a virtual background on Zoom.
Before you use Zoom's virtual background feature, you'll want to make sure you have Zoom version 4.6.0 on your PC or Mac, or an up-to-date version of the iOS Zoom mobile app on an iPhone 8 or later or a fifth-generation iPad or later. Once you've got everything set up, you'll need to sign into your Zoom account and head to the Settings section. Select the Virtual Background tab and choose the plus sign (+) to upload the image of your choice. Here are 10 foodie-approved backdrops to choose from for your next call.
