Valentine's Day just got sweeter with help of Zoom virtual backgrounds. The right background can spice up virtual dates, liven up meetings, and spread love to long-distance friends.

For virtual dates, add a custom background to create the same ambiance as in-person dining. An image with hearts and candles sets the tone, and you don't have to worry about tidying up rooms. Keep the spirit of Valentine's Day alive at virtual office parties. A simple background like colorful candy hearts or a close-up of flowers maintains a work-friendly environment while being festive. Celebrate close friends with a virtual girl's night in for Galentine's day. Use throwback pictures to show off a group glow up and reminisce about old times.

In this article, I'm sharing ten Valentine's Day backgrounds for Zoom and how to upload a virtual background.

You can always make personal pictures the star of your background. Opening Zoom to an image of loved ones is fitting for celebrating this holiday from afar.

The Zoom Virtual Background Maker resizes images to 1920 X 1080, the perfect size for any computer screen. The compatible formats include JPEG, JPG, and PNG. For video backgrounds, upload a MOV or MP4 file.

How to Upload a Virtual Background to Zoom

All that's left is to upload your virtual background before Valentine's Day arrives. Before starting, check the system requirements and download the Zoom App. Unfortunately, virtual backgrounds are not compatible with the web portal.  

All you have to do is open the Zoom app, then click settings in the top right corner. From here, click backgrounds and filters to upload your background or explore the default images. After a few seconds, your new virtual background will appear.
