Zoom is a popular video chat application used by people across the world. It allows users to conduct face-to-face meetings with friends, families, co-workers, employees, and more. By default, Zoom will display our actual background on the screen, which will be shared with the other end users. But you can also change your background in Zoom to any image from Zoom default images or pictures from your own gallery. Changing background will also help you to optimize bandwidth usage. In this article, we guide you to change the background image in your Zoom app.
How to Change Background in Zoom
You can change your Zoom background to any image using two different ways. Let us discuss these methods with the necessary screenshots.
