But first, if you’re not sure how to change your virtual background image, here are some instructions.
How To Set Your Zoom Virtual Background

Via Zoom Desktop app before a meeting:
- In the Zoom app, click your profile in the top right corner, and select Settings.
- On the menu to the left, click Virtual Background.
- You’ll see a few default background options provided by Zoom. You can choose one of those by clicking on it, or upload your own.

- To remove any of your uploaded photos, click the X in the top left corner of that image.
PRO TIP: While you’re in Settings, on the menu to the left, click Video, then check the box for “Touch up my appearance” and take 5 years off your look.
Via Zoom Mobile App:
