A virtual background for every occasion
Whether you’re working in your home office, on the kitchen table, or taking a meeting on the train, connecting with colleagues from anywhere is the new normal. That’s why Canva has created an extensive range of designer-made, free Zoom virtual background templates for every occasion.
With millions of images, illustrations and icons and hundreds of fonts to choose from, you can easily customize your Zoom background and make it your own in minutes.
With the world in a state of depression, many of us have now found ourselves with a new workplace – our homes. While it is certainly cut down the commute, it is also having some interesting results; namely, our co-workers are getting a rare glance into our living space through video chat.
At least temporarily, communicating with our colleagues in this way is likely normal. To save you from the potential insults of a messy room, and frankly just lighten the mood a bit, graphic design platform Canva has released a new background creator for Zoom video calls recently.
The new tool enables users to create their own Zoom background from Canva’s library containing millions of images, illustrations and icons, and customize it with easy-to-use editing tools.
It’s not just about hiding your living room turned home office, though. If your Zoom meeting calls for something more practical, the tool also allows you to add an agenda list or an infographic to the background of your video chat.
For those who haven’t used Canva before, there are 80 ready-made templates for you to choose from, ranging from funky animations to beachside views, corporate offices to the cosmos. Or, if you’d rather, you can upload your own image or choose from Canva’s free image library.
Canva is free to use, all that’s required is to sign up for an account. For the moment, the new background creator tool is only compatible with Zoom video conferencing software.
