As more employees switch to hybrid or remote work, Zoom meetings have become the new normal. However, as this form of communication becomes more commonplace, people now have new factors to think about. For example, what is an appropriate background for your video call? Read on to learn more about this topic.

Virtual Backgrounds 

Many web conferencing tools have begun to provide a variety of digital background options. These may include blurring what is already in the background or replacing the background with a virtual image or video. We have found that the following backgrounds are some of the most popular. 

“Personality” Backgrounds

Some workers choose virtual backgrounds that show off their personality. For example, someone who loves sports may choose a basketball court as their background, while someone who loves cats may choose a patterned cat background. While these backgrounds are certainly conversation starters but may not necessarily advance your professional reputation.

Logo Backgrounds

Some employees are all business, all the time. These people may choose a background of their corporate logo to maintain an heir of professionalism. This tends to be most popular among sales and marketing people.

Realistic Backgrounds

There are many people who choose to use a virtual background that could easily pass for a real workplace. Depending on the video call software you are using, you can choose from pictures of modern office spaces, cool loft apartments, and hotel lobbies. These options tend to be quite popular among many. However, it is important to bear in mind that people in the background of your environment may cut through the virtual background, so it is best to use these backgrounds in spaces without foot traffic. 

Blurred Backgrounds 

The most popular background used today seems to be the “blur” effect, which simply blurs a user’s real background. This background can provide enough detail to show that you are in a real location, without so much detail that is distracting.
