For virtual backgrounds, it helps if you sit in front of a single solid color that doesn’t match your skin tone, hair or clothing. You can sit in front an empty wall or hang a colored sheet behind you. This will help the camera separate you from your background. 

How to Add a Virtual Background in Zoom

  1. Log in to your Zoom desktop client.
  2. Click Settings/Preferences.
  3. Click on Virtual Background from the Settings menu.
  4. Check the box next to "I have a green screen."
  5. Click on an image to select the desired virtual background or add your own image by clicking +Add Image.

How to Add a Virtual Background in BlueJeans

  5. Tap the camera menu at the bottom (see first pic below) and select Snap Camera, then join a meeting. Or, if you are in a meeting in a browser, you can select the Snap Camera from the side panel (see second pic below). This does not work on mobile.
