Zooming into the Holidays: Add Festive Fun to your Virtual Meetings

Bet you are tired of seeing everyone’s same old backgrounds on your video conference calls, aren’t you?

Bring a little Christmas spirit to your next virtual meeting or digital learning session with a festive background from JingleRing. Consider it an early Christmas gift! These backgrounds can help you spread a little holiday cheer and take the Bah Humbug right out of your most grumpy co-worker during your next online meeting.

Dreaming of a White Christmas? This relaxing, animated snowfall featuring a cheery red background is the perfect backdrop for you! For an authentic wintery feel, crank up the air conditioning and cozy up with sweatpants and fuzzy slippers. Paired with your most professional looking blazer, no one will know. Business on the top, Cozy on the bottom!

Deck the virtual halls with a colorful, fresh, and modern living room background full of Christmas cheer and twinkling lights. Think outside the (gift) box and let the bright color palette inspire your holiday home décor this year!

For more traditional holiday vibes, this fireplace adorned with stockings will have you ready to roast some chestnuts on that open fire! Pour some hot cocoa in your coffee mug to complete this cozy holiday feel.

Now a word from Santa’s Helpers on best practices for your virtual backgrounds to work splendidly…

  • Virtual backgrounds work best if the area behind you is a solid color. A bare solid color wall or a green screen are our top choice.
  • Avoid wearing clothing that is a similar color to the virtual background.
  • Try to stay still, too much motion will cause the real background to slip through.
  • Stay well lit, spotlight your face. Light entering from the side or behind will affect the image on screen and cast shadows.

How to change your background on the Zoom app:

  1. Sign In
  2. On your desktop, click on your profile picture, then select settings. On mobile, you will have to join a meeting, then select the three dots at the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Click on Virtual Background.
  4. Select upload your own image.
  5. Click the + icon to upload from your video.
  6. Optional: If you have a green screen set-up, select that option for optimal viewing.
