12 Free Professional Zoom Backgrounds for Your Business Calls

With COVID-19 spreading and people staying at home, Zoom has emerged as the go-to app for businesses in the past year. It didn’t just become an app people use, but a work culture shifting tool that has enabled executives to work from home and progress their business in the right direction. Here is our list of professional zoom backgrounds you can use for free.

What is Zoom, and is it free?

Zoom (Zoom Video Communications, Inc.) is a publicly-traded company based in the United States. Its core product is their online chat service Zoom, an app that allows one party to communicate via video or voice to another party. The unique selling point of Zoom is that it enables more than two people to call each other for free. It’s great for teams and families from different households to communicate without having to spend a lot of money or time figuring out how to do it. Zoom is currently free, but professional teams can upgrade their plans for more features such as company branding, cloud recording transcripts, and more participants.

How Can I Use a Custom Background in Zoom?     

Using a custom background is quite easy on Zoom. Firstly, there are a few important recommendations to ensure it is functioning at its best. One of the key things to try and have is a solid background, preferably of green or blue colours. Higher quality cameras also help. Final point, do not pose with clothing that matches or is very similar to the background because this may cause Zoom difficulty in isolating you from the background.

To start using your virtual background, first, you’ll want to sign into Zoom with your account. In the menu, click account management and then click account settings. With this done, an option for a meeting tab will come up which you want to click. After, click on the virtual background option and enable it by using the toggle. You may also need to tick two options, one is Allow use of videos for virtual backgrounds, and the other is Allow users to upload custom backgrounds.
