Zoom is a great communication tool for keeping in touch with work colleagues and friends. So it’s worth trying out the virtual backgrounds.
Zooming Allows users to set a virtual background and the ability to personalize their video calls. Users can set a virtual background on iOS or Android, as well as on a Windows device. Setting up a background on one of these devices isn’t very complicated as there are just a few steps between Zoom users making a video call from Doctor Who or their favorite Pixar character in the TARDIS.
For people working from home or just looking for social interaction during the coronavirus pandemic, Zoom has proven to be an incredibly important communication tool that has a wide variety of virtual backgrounds. As popular as it is, zoom is by no means a perfect solution. Privacy and security issues have historically been an issue, including “zoom bombing attacks” in which someone who is not invited to a Zoom call will crash.
To set a Zoom background on iOS and Android devices, users must actually first attend a Zoom meeting. Once they have participated in a video call, they must tap the More button (lower right corner) and then tap “Virtual Background”. Then you can either select one of the images contained in the zoom app, e.g. B. The Golden Gate Bridge, or add one of your own pictures by tapping the plus sign. The background is then automatically applied and once the “Close” button is pressed, the user returns to the meeting.
Setting the zoom background in Windows
To set a zoom background on a Windows device, the user must start the Zoom desktop client and log into Zoom. After that, they have to click on the profile picture to access the settings and then click on the Virtual Backgrounds tab. There is again the option of selecting one of the backgrounds offered by Zoom or clicking the “+” button to upload a new image. After you select the background, it will be used in all future Zoom meetings, unless it has been changed.
Setting a zoom background is an easy and quick way to make Zoom calls a little more fun. For example, if a group of friends enjoy talking about classic sitcoms, everyone can change their background to a Golden Girls picture. Fortunately, it is also easy to turn off a zoom background if a particular Zoom meeting is taking place in a more professional setting, such as at the office. For example, at a work meeting or job interview by tapping or clicking the None button under Virtual Background. Tab.
