Desktop virtual backgrounds have long been a favorite feature of Zoomers. Our customers have been super creative in selecting background images to use in their meetings. This fun and easy feature can be used in several scenarios. In a sales call, add a personal touch by using your customer’s logo or headquarters campus as your virtual background. Working from home? Simply find a picture of a formal office and upload it as your virtual background for an instant professional look. You can also customize your background to show off your unique personality, whether it’s a beach scene, mountain resort, or the logo of your favorite sports team. These are all conversation starters and build instant rapport.
Now you can take this awesome feature on the go with virtual backgrounds for iPhones! While desktop virtual backgrounds work best in front of a solid green backdrop, our mobile virtual backgrounds (iPhone 8 and later models) don’t require any solid backdrop. With mobile backgrounds, a virtual image will be applied on your command, regardless of your background. How amazing is that?
If this sounds too good to be true, see for yourself! Check out this quick video about our mobile app (virtual backgrounds are demoed about 35 seconds in):
Here’s how you do it yourself. First, update your Zoom app (this will automatically enable the virtual background feature). Then start a meeting and tap the screen for the menu to pop up at the bottom of your screen. Then you just have to select More in the right bottom corner and then Virtual Backgrounds. Choose a default image or upload a photo from your gallery.
