How to Apply a Zoom Background

Maybe you’ve never applied a Zoom virtual background before.

Not to worry, here’s everything you need to know.

Recommended Settings

Zoom has a few recommendations for applying your virtual background:

  • Have a solid color background behind you, preferably a green screen
  • A higher quality camera will work best
  • Ensure you have uniform lighting and color
  • Don’t wear clothing that’s the same color as your background.

There’s a set of system requirements your device will have to match in order to use virtual backgrounds effectively. You can find all the details on those requirements right here.

Step-by-Step Guide

The first step in applying a Zoom virtual background is ensuring you have the feature enabled:

  • Sign-in to the Zoom web portal
  • Click “Settings” in the navigation menu
  • Click the “Meeting” tab and ensure the virtual background option is enabled

Once the virtual background setting is enabled, follow these steps to apply a new backdrop:

  • Sign-in to the Zoom desktop client
  • Click your profile picture, and click “Settings”
  • Select “virtual background” (restart your client if the tab is not appearing)
  • Check the “I have a green screen” option if you are using one
  • Upload one of your images by clicking the “+” symbol
  • Click on the image to apply it

That’s all you have to do to apply your virtual sports background on Zoom.
