Your next virtual hangout doesn't have to include a view of your bedroom. Zoom's virtual background feature makes it possible to video chat from somewhere far away, including from a pineapple under the sea. These are the 12 best SpongeBob SquarePants Zoom backgrounds to make a video call from Bikini Bottom.
If you haven't used Zoom's virtual background feature yet, it's easy to start. With a few steps, you can transform your call with a photo or video that replaces your room with a new environment. There are endless options available to switch up your calls, including some incredible choices from iconic cartoons.
To start using Zoom's virtual backgrounds, check that your PC or Mac is running version 4.6.0 or higher of the Zoom desktop client. If you're using your iPhone or an iPad, make sure that the mobile app is updated and you have an iPhone 8 or later or a fifth-generation iPad or later. For the best results, Zoom recommends that you use a green screen if you have one, or a white wall. Next, you can upload your Zoom background by going to Settings and selecting the Virtual Backgrounds tab. Then, click on the plus sign (+) to upload a high-resolution image.
SpongeBob fans will feel so seen with these virtual background options. While SquarePants may not be the ultimate choice for a serious work call, you can use these backdrops on calls with friends for a good laugh.
