Zoom is an immensely useful way of hosting video conferencing chats or webinars. It offers some very useful features that other video conferencing tools don't provide, like the option to use a Zoom virtual background during your calls. Set it up, and you won't have to worry about your messy room or if your living space looks a little too 'lived in', proving perfect when you need to work from home.
To use Zoom's video chat background feature, you need a fairly high spec PC or Mac to enable it. That means your Mac or PC will need a very recent version of its operating system and higher-end quad-core processor. If you have an older, lower spec system then you'll require placing a physical green screen behind you for Zoom conference to be able to pick up on it and translate your background to a more aesthetically pleasing backdrop than what was there before.
It's recommended that you use a reasonably high quality webcam and avoid wearing clothing that are the same color as the virtual background. Watch the video or follow the written instructions below to get your background set up.
Assuming your PC or Mac has the power to cope with the virtual background feature, it's easy to set up. Here's how to do it, and hide all that clutter behind you.
