No matter where you’re calling from, video conferencing platforms like Zoom can help you stay connected with your friends and co-workers. One of the most popular features on Zoom is the ability to swap out your background IRL for a virtual one, so you can chat with any type of surroundings. These IKEA Zoom backgrounds channel the designs from your fave Swedish furniture company. The only thing missing is the meatballs.
Before you start using Zoom's virtual background feature, make sure you're using Zoom version 4.6.0 on your Mac or PC computer. If you're using the Zoom mobile app, you'll need an iPhone a or later or a fifth-generation iPad or later and the latest update. Next, create an account and sign into Zoom. To change your physical background for a virtual one, go to Settings and click on the Virtual Background tab. From there, you can select the plus icon (+) to upload your own with a high-resolution image or video from royalty-free image services like Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels.
IKEA created its own Zoom backgrounds that you can use during your meetings. When you're on the site, you can scroll through different background categories, including Celebrations, Office, Spaces, and Romantic Date. Each category has a different type of space, so there should be something to fit whatever vibe you're going for. To download one you like, click the down arrow in the upper right corner of the image. Check out the virtual IKEA makeovers that await you.
