16 Haunted House Zoom Backgrounds That'll Transport You To A Spooky Scene

It's time to kick off the Halloween festivities with a themed celebration. If you're celebrating the spooky holiday at home this year, you can use a remote video conferencing platforms like Zoom to connect with your spooky season crew. You can even add a Halloween-themed virtual background to give your pals a good scare. Here are 16 haunted house Zoom backgrounds to use during your remote gathering.

You can easily bring the party to your house if you're skipping out on a IRL haunted house tour this year. A haunted house background will easily transport you from your living room to a frightening scene that'll make you feel just like you're exploring an abandoned space.

To get started using Zoom's virtual background feature, you'll need to make sure that you're using 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're set up, you can then change your virtual background by signing into your account, heading to Settings, and selecting the Virtual Background tab. From there, you'll be able to upload an image to use as your background. Royalty-free image services like Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels have plenty of photos featuring spooky scenes you'd usually find in a haunted house.
