Zoom brings virtual background to Android app
The Android version of Zoom is getting a new update this week that brings a new set of features. While the video conferencing platform continues to be primarily used on the web. The company is equally aware of the changes its mobile app needs. And because of this, Zoom is now bringing the virtual background feature to its mobile app. This addition is part of the Zoom Android app version 5.3, available for all users now.
This feature became popular with web users, especially since people working from home could change their video background. And not show the shabby real-life settings or hide their whereabouts in general. The Android app comes with minor differences compared to the web platform. On the mobile app, you can only choose still images as the background. Video support for the background is still restricted to the web version.
