While video calls are an increasingly large part of our everyday lives, you may not always have the opportunity to present a perfectly tidy background – you live where you work, after all. Conveniently, most video calling programs come with a feature to digitally blur the background or even completely replace it with another graphic. As Unsplash announces on the blog, they have added the infamous Zoom software to the long list of partners that can directly access the millions of photos on Unsplash using the API. So from the application you can search for Unsplash photos and set them as your background.
How to add a Virtual Background to your Zoom call
- Step 1: Click the Apps icon on the Zoom Meeting toolbar
- Step 2: Click on “Virtual Backgrounds”
- Step 3: Scroll through or search for an Unsplash image
- Step 4: Hover over the image and click “Set Background”
