You have a Zoom meeting, but your normal work-from-home space is occupied, or a mess. You have no time to clean it up, or find a neutral.
Well, you don’t have to panic as there are options built right into communication platform to hide the space behind you. This is called Background blurring.
This option can keep your space private, or render messy rooms unclear.
How to blur your Zoom background before a meeting
If you don’t want to use a virtual background during a Zoom call, there’s no reason you have to show off your personal space. With Zoom open, click on the gear in the upper-right of the window, which will open the Settings window.
With Settings open, click on Backgrounds And Filters. On the screen that appears simply click Blur and your background would be blurred out.
How to blur your Zoom background while in a meeting
If you decide you want to blur the background mid-call you’re in luck, as that’s a simple task as well.
From the main meeting screen, look to the bar on the bottom (you may need to move your mouse to make it appear), where you should see a button labeled Stop Video with a small up arrow in the corner. Click the arrow, and then click on Video Settings
The screen that appears is the same Settings menu. So, click on Backgrounds And Filters and select Blur Close the menu and you should see yourself with a blurred background in your current meeting.
