Zoom video specs and best practice

  • Videos have a maximum resolution of 1920×1080.
  • Make sure your video background is just that — a background. A little bit of movement is nice. Too much and it’ll be distracting.
  • Use videos that have a static camera and limited background movement. Nature (beaches, mountains, forests etc) and abstract animated video backgrounds are perfect for this.

Variety is the spice of life, and the same can be said for your Zoom backgrounds. Working remotely, it can be easy to forget that people will be staring at the same wall behind your desk every day.

Zoom’s virtual background feature does away with the need for green screens to superimpose a background behind you. With the magic of technology (and don’t ask us how) everyone can upload a clever, hilarious, calming, or nostalgic background to their video calls.

Jump onto your next Zoom call with a brand new office background. Or a classroom background. Or the oval office. Or space. Or a screengrab from your favorite film. The options are limitless.

How to add a background in Zoom in 3 easy steps

  • Step 1. Download a background or video that you want to feature in your next Zoom call.
  • Step 2. Open up Zoom and click the cog icon or ‘Settings’. Then navigate down to ‘Background & Filters’.
  • Step 3. From the Virtual Backgrounds tab, click the + icon — ‘Add image or video’. Upload your image or video and you’re done.
