Starbucks is bringing the ambience of its most renowned storefronts to your next remote call, thanks to Zoom's background-changing feature. Coffee lovers can swap out their living rooms and offices for wanderlust-evoking scenes of the company's most famed locations around the world. If you're ready to get started, grab your favorite brew and check out these 10 Starbucks Zoom backgrounds to liven up your next coffee date or meeting.
Just like any time you use Zoom's background feature, you'll want to check to make sure you have Zoom version 4.6.0 or higher on your laptop or desktop, an iPhone 8 or higher, or at least a fifth-generation iPad to be able to access all the capabilities. Once you've created your account and signed it, you can click on Meeting Settings and then the Meeting tab. Once you're in the tab, you'll see a Virtual Background button with the option to upload a high-resolution image or video of your choosing, which in this case ranges from a lush landscape of Starbucks' coffee farm in Costa Rica to the world's largest Starbucks location in Chicago.
In addition to high-res video clips of steaming coffee and swirling cold foam, Starbucks offers a number of cool backgrounds including the original storefront in Seattle and the marble-covered Reserve location in Milan. You can download the images from the page on the Starbucks website or straight from this page, and they'll be ready for uploading.
