If you're using Zoom for work meetings or virtual hangouts with your friends, you might want to switch up your surroundings with a sleek digital background. Whether you're on a call in a messy bedroom or chilling on the couch, you can change up your space by swapping out your physical backdrop for a virtual one. That's where these 14 best Zoom home backgrounds come in handy to give your room a virtual makeover.
Using Zoom's virtual background feature is easy. Check to see if you have Zoom version 4.6.0 on your Mac or PC computer, or you're using the app version for iOS with an iPhone 8 or later. You can also use the Zoom mobile app with a fifth generation iPad or later. Once you've downloaded or updated to the version you need, create a Zoom account and sign in.
You can change your virtual background in a meeting or from the homepage. Go to Settings and click on the Virtual Background tab. Then, click the plus (+) sign and upload your high resolution image. Zoom suggests using images or videos from royalty-free image services, such as Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels.
