If you’re working remotely and getting a little tired of your current zoom background, why not switch it to something more fun and upbeat?
Virtual zoom backgrounds with the beach views are the perfect way to add a tiny bit of summer fun to your video calls, whether you’re catching up with friends, colleagues, or even a boss. Seaside is always relaxing and sunny, which can help to create a kind of positive mood for your online session.
I have searched through a ton of photo stock websites and manually selected the best zoom beach backgrounds from less-known locations so that you can surprise your zoom call participants. So go ahead and make your next zoom call a beachside vacation – your coworkers will thank you for it 🙂.
Bonus: you will also find some zoom video backgrounds at the end of the article, with a detailed description of how to enable them.
In order to save the background on your computer, right-click on the desired image and select the
"Save as …" option and you’re ready to go!

I don’t find them very useful because they’re not very realistic—I can’t be on top of the Golden Bridge.

How to Add the Video Zoom Background
It is almost the same as with image backgrounds. You press “plus” button and select the “Add Video” option. Remember, you cannot use YouTube videos straight away, the video file must be saved on your computer or another zoom device.
