How To Use Virtual Backgrounds in Zoom

The Virtual Background feature allows you to display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting. You can upload your own images or videos, or you can select from several images made available to all users.

While in a meeting, most users can click the up arrow (^) next to Start/Stop Video and then click "Choose a virtual background." Be sure to use the links below for additional information.



The Office of Communications has provided several SNC-related backgrounds for use by all users. Users must have client/app version 5.1.1 or higher to see these background images.
