30 Virtual Backgrounds to Spice Up Your WFH Life
Let these fun & exciting backgrounds make you the talk of your (virtual) office on the next conference call!
With everyone working from home, video conferencing apps become the latest thing to have on your devices. Thanks to the customizability of ZOOM, it has become more popular compared to other apps of the same kind.
One of its key functions is “Virtual Background”. On top of concealing your messy room from your colleagues, it allows you to keep things fun and interesting during conference calls.
Switching to Virtual Background is simple. Just click the triangle mark next to the video icon in the bottom left and select “Choose Virtual Background”. In the menu, you’ll find a few sample images provided by ZOOM and the option to upload a file from your device.
Wherever you’d rather (pretend to) be at right now – beaches, mountains, or even space – you can easily do so with these images.
So if you’re looking to pep up your presentation, here are 30 virtual backgrounds you can use. We promise you’ll be the life of your next online meeting!
