Zoom offers Virtual backgrounds on video calls for Android

published on: 27/09/2020 5:00 PM

The new version of Zoom for Android devices comes with important new features: you can use virtual backgrounds for video calls.

The Zoom app is renewed for Android devices , offering a host of new and exciting features for users. The videoconferencing app is now among the most popular, also thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic that marked the boom in downloads and use between video lessons for school or business meetings.

Among the most appreciated functions of Zoom from those who work remotely, there is certainly the possibility of adding virtual backgrounds during the video call, so as to maintain a minimum of privacy. 

A feature that was only available to Desktop users for some time. With version 5.3 of the app on the Google Play Store, the function also arrives for those with an Android device, along with other very interesting features to improve the quality of video calls. Bad news comes for Chromebook users: the app is no longer compatible with the Chrome OS system.

Zoom, virtual wallpapers for video calls on Android

Version 5.3.52640.0920 of the Zoom app is already available for Android devices and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. 

The great revolution concerns above all the arrival of virtual backgrounds for video calls, which are particularly useful for the user who, while working from home, does not want to share their private environment with work colleagues or customers in a video call. 

The long-awaited function has therefore arrived, but it still has a limitation compared to the Desktop version of the app: the user will be able to choose only images as the background of their video call, rather than using videos.

Zoom, the other news of the app for Android

The Zoom developers have fixed bugs and problems related to the Rooms, improved the Advanced Search system, and added new features. A very useful one is sharing the audio of a phone call directly during the video call, thus eliminating any reverberations from the microphone. Also improved the synchronization of the calendar integration, to join the next meeting without having to click on the reference URL, and the scheduling of default settings.

As for meetings, the latest version of the app allows you to automatically select the Room for defined groups of people. New features have also arrived for chat, with improved link preview and the ability to hide chat bots in the instant messaging list.
