ZOOM Virtual Background

How to change your Virtual Background

Follow the steps below to get started. You are encouraged to update to the latest version of Zoom to see all options and available filters.


Download an image or video of your choosing.

Compatible formats include GIF, JPG/JPEG, or PNG. We recommend an image with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a minimum resolution of 1280x720 pixels.


On the desktop app, navigate to Preferences in the settings menu. On the left side menu, go to Background & Filters


You will then see Virtual Backgrounds, where you can choose from the preloaded options, or upload your own by clicking the plus (+) icon to the right of Video Filters.

You can choose either an image as your background. You’ll see a library of the images you’ve uploaded under Virtual Backgrounds.

To add or change your virtual background during a meeting, click on the upward arrow (^) next to Start/Stop Video. Click Choose Virtual Background, and select any of your backgrounds!

Top 3 tips for the best Zoom Virtual Background results:

Tip 1

Leave “Mirror my video” checked. Words in your background will look back to you but will read normally to the other meeting participants.

Tip 2

For the cleanest results, have a solid color in the background - or better yet, a green screen - so that your virtual background shows up clearly.

Tip 3

Don’t wear clothing the same color as your virtual background. No one wants to be a floating head!
