@nita47 - You can search online for that sort of information. Basically, the less busy your background the better - either a blank wall or put a room screen behind you is best - and put the light to your side and in front of you, not behind you. Tip: use the camera feature on your device as if you are taking a selfie. It's a good way to see what others will see before you video conference and you can adjust from there.


@https://www.houzz.com/user/soulcage2007 (Мария Костыкова) You need to upload the virtual background from the desktop version and then it's available in the Zoom app on your device. That's been my experience at least.
