Did Somebody Say New Zoom Virtual Backgrounds?

The Zoom Virtual Background feature has been made to help you display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting. To experience the best virtual background effect, Zoom recommends you to use a solid green color background and uniform lighting. With these recommended settings, Zoom detects the difference between you and your background easily.

This feature also allows you to upload your own images or videos as a virtual background with no restrictions to file size. However, cropping the image to match the aspect ratio of your camera before uploading it will always bring a better experience or effect.


1)    Zoom Desktop Client for PC, version 4.4.53582.0519 or higher

2)    Windows 7, 8, or 10 (64-bit)

3)    4th generation i7 quad-core or a higher processor
