Fun backgrounds for your next video call

[first published in April 2020. This is an update with more fun backgrounds to use]

Okay, so we still cannot escape this topic of Zoom. 

Understandable since it is the new way of ‘socialising’ or doing meetings during this Circuit Breaker period.

So, at the risk of overloading our blog with Zoom related articles, we decided to still want to share some fun Zoom backgrounds you can use in your next call with your client, a counterpart or our Surer demo session cause we are fun people

Before we get into it, here’s a couple of quick steps on how to change your virtual background on Zoom…

Change your Zoom background on the desktop app 

  1. In the Zoom app, click your profile in the top right corner, and click Settings. 
  2. On the menu to the left, click Virtual Background. 
  3. You’ll see a few default background options provided by Zoom
  4. If you want to upload a photo to use as your background, on the same Virtual Background Page, click the + icon next to where it says Choose Virtual Background. A box will pop up allowing you to upload a photo from your computer.
  5. To get rid of any photos you upload, tap the X in their top left corner.

Change your Zoom background on the mobile app 

  1. When you log into your account and join a meeting, tap the three dots at the bottom right of the screen to open the More menu. 
  2. Tap Virtual Background. 
  3. Select a background from the default options, or upload your own.

Okay, so we have gotten that boring stuff out of the way. Here’s the promised land of fun video call background images…
