The virtual background feature allows you to display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting.

In video meetings with users outside KTH, it can be helpful for participants to see where you belong. Then use the background image below.

How to change background image

1. Open the Zoom client on your computer.

In Windows, you reach Zoom in the list of programs under the Start menu or by searching for "Zoom".

2. Go to settings by clicking the gear icon in the upper right corner of the client.

3. Select "Virtual Background" and upload the image via the plus symbol above existing images.

Remember that you will see the image (and yourself) mirrored if the "Mirror my video" option is checked.

4. During a current Zoom meeting, you can change the background image via the drop-down menu to the right of the stop/start video icon.
