Having problems?

Make sure you are running the latest version

There are improvements being made all the time to the backgrounds feature and you should ideally be on version 5.1.1 or higher.

Older versions of the Zoom app will not have Smart Virtual Background package as an option. There was also an issue with virtual background not working on AMD processors on old Zoom releases. Click on the menu in Zoom and select "Check for Updates"
