18 Valentine's Day Zoom Backgrounds That'll Have You Seeing Hearts

Valentine's Day is coming up on Feb. 14, but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, your plans are probably looking a little different this year. Thankfully, you can still celebrate virtually with your BFFs or partner using a teleconferencing platform like Zoom. You can even use a themed virtual background to add to the festivities. These 18 Valentine's Day Zoom backgrounds will help you spread the romance no matter where you are.

As of Dec. 31, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending virtual holiday gatherings as the lowest risk option for seeing people. With a virtual party, you can connect with people all over the world from the comfort of your couch. To set the tone for your virtual gathering, however, you'll want to add a Valentine's Day-themed backdrop that'll replace your living room with plenty of hearts, flowers, and chocolates.

You can find a Valentine's Day-themed backdrop using royalty-free image services such as Pixabay, Pexels, or Unsplash. To use them, download the image to your computer or right-click on the image from its blog site to save. Once you've downloaded your chosen image, open Zoom and click Settings > Backgrounds & Filters. Then, tap the plus sign (+) on the virtual background tab to upload your image.

To get started, here are 18 options you can use for your Valentine's Day (or Galentine's Day) Zoom backgrounds.
