There is no doubt that 2020 belongs to video calling apps. Software like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet have seen a dramatic increase in downloads and usage. Zoom, with its easy-to-use interface and dozens of features, leads the race by a good margin.


Today, many people use Zoom to interview for jobs, attend seminars, music concerts, keep in touch with friends and family, and more. During an important meeting on Zoom, you don't want to show the messy room or the background behind you.



The good news is that Zoom allows you to change the wallpaper in the app. Participants will not be able to see what's behind you. Instead, they can only take a look at the wallpaper you are using. Zoom goes further and offers the ability to load custom wallpapers from your PC or Mac for use during video calls.

Functionality is essential in certain scenarios. By using a custom wallpaper, you can also make a good impression during video calls. Zoom only offers some wallpapers in the software. But as I said, you can opt for the custom wallpapers that you keep saved on your device.


Finding high-quality royalty-free images can be confusing. You don't want to spend so much time on the web finding wallpapers for your next zoom meeting. Let's talk about some websites that offer free high-quality royalty-free images. We will also cover how to add them to the Zoom software.

How to find funny zoom wallpapers

There are two ways to get a fun Zoom wallpaper from the web. You can opt for royalty-free websites that offer millions of images for personal use. If you want some specific images, choose the websites that allow creators to sell you the images. Let's look at a couple of excellent royalty-free websites.



Pixabay

Pixabay offers over 1,8 million free images for personal use. Open the website from the link and find the free images directly from the main screen. The default page consists of photos, illustrations, vectors, and more. Go to the Photos tab and start searching for images.


You can search images for the words cafes, conference rooms, famous places, and more. Pixabay will show both portrait format and images horizontally. Use the Orientation filter above to show only images horizontally.

Select the images you like and hit the "Free Download" button, select the resolution and you are good to go.

Unsplash

Unsplash is another great source for finding fun wallpapers for Zoom video calls. I find the Unsplash collection better than the Pixabay one. Unsplash offers a series of wallpaper collections right on the home screen.


You shouldn't opt ​​for vertical resolution photos as they won't look good during video calls. If you're like me and don't want to go overboard with wallpapers on Zoom, search for Desk on these websites. Unsplash also offers the ability to filter images with orientation and colors. Use them to quickly find relevant wallpapers.

Download paid images

Most of the time, you will find what you are looking for from the two sources above. But, if you want to check out the paid options, head over to Adobe Stock Images or Shutterstock and explore the image gallery.


Shutterstock also offers 10 free images for the first month. Go to these websites and choose the images to use as the Zoom background.

Now that you've downloaded these great wallpapers, it's time to add them to the Zoom app. Follow the steps below for that.
