With much of the country staying indoors, and many working from home, a lot of people are asking “how do I make my video calls look more interesting?”
If you’re using Teams or Zoom to catch up with friends and family, or for conducting meetings for work, you can now change your background image, hiding what’s actually there, and placing you into an entirely virtual world, and it couldn’t be easier.
Whether you’re using Zoom or Teams, you can now add one of these fabulous Plumbs images to completely transform your home office into a luxurious living room. Don’t worry, instructions how to change your background image for both Zoom and Teams are below.
Then, when you’re on a call on Teams, click the three dots in the control bar, choose Show Effects, and then choose your new Plumbs background and brace yourself to become the envy of your friends and work colleagues.
If you’re using Zoom, the process is even easier. Start by opening the Zoom program. Then click Room Management, then select Zoom Rooms. From there, go to Account Settings at the top of the page, and in the Account Profile tab, under Background image for Zoom Rooms, click Upload New Image, select your saved Plumbs image, click open, and welcome to your new living room.
