An important thing to keep in mind during a video conference is to have a background that is not distracting or messy. But it might seem like an invasion of privacy to let other people have a glimpse of your bedroom or of the mess that you live in! A clever way to prevent this from happening is to use a virtual background.

 

So if you want to know how to add a virtual background during a video call to protect your privacy in every possible way, then follow the detailed step-by-step guide given below.

You can also upload your own image for a virtual background by clicking the plus icon and then clicking on “Add image”.
