Cool Zoom Backgrounds

Are you working from home due to the outbreak of the coronavirus (Covid-19) now? For remote work, you cannot work without many useful online tools such as chatting platforms and video communication apps.  You need the online communication tools for communicating with your family and friends online as well as teleworking. Governments ask you to stay at home, which make you unable to visit someone else living separately.

Speaking of online communicating tools, Zoom has been one of the most popular online video conferencing services in the world since it was released in the United States in 2013. If you use it, did you know you could change the background? The customized virtual background give you two major advantages. One thing is for those who don’t want to show your room to others on Zoom, and the other thing is just making users feel better with their favorite pictures.

Partly because of this situation under the coronavirus spreading, many companies and services offer free attractive Zoom backgrounds with various themes including movies, anime, manga, games and so on. In Japan, pop backgrounds are offered by the famous anime studio Ghibli and the iconic Super Mario. Marvel and DC characters are also available now. You can freely use them with Zoom wherever you live.

Here is the list of recommended Zoom backgrounds for those who telecommute and live separately with family. Just try them!

I'm writing by my motto: helping travelers spend their limited time experiencing something priceless in Japan. My articles won't let you down! Living in Tokyo and traveling many popular and hidden sites all over Japan, I deliver well-selected and latest tourist information to you from the perspective of “100% Japanese local”. My specific interests are island hopping, eating countless bowls of ramen, watching anime and reading manga.
