The Covid-19 pandemic has redefined normal and it has disrupted the way we work and has changed the entire corporate structure. Virtual meetings have taken precedence and well, meeting in office has taken a backseat.
While working from the comfort of your home has its benefit, there are a number of challenges which have come to fore, especially when you have to deal with household chores.
Official video calls in the absence of a neat and proper background looks rather sloppy and hence, Zoom, the app which has grown exponentially over the past two months, has released a new feature which will allow users to change their background as per their preferences.
What this effectively means is that Zoom users can use a background as per their choice and this include choosing an image as per their fancy – which can include having anything from a beach to the mountains as your background.
Here is how you can change the background on your desktop:
Step 1: Open the Zoo app and then click on your Profile which is on right corner of the app.
Step 2: Now Click on the Settings menu.
Step 3: Proceed to then tap on the Virtual Background option which is in the menu to your left.
Step 4: One has to now choose one of the default background options which are provided by Zoom. As soon as you click on it, the changes will be saved automatically.
Step 5: One can now upload the image of your choice which can be used as a background. Then go to the Virtual Background option and then click on the plus icon right where it says ‘Choose Virtual Background’.
Step 6: Also, there is a dialog box which will appear where the image of your choice can be uploaded. This image will then appear alongside other images which are provided by Zoom for you to choose from.
