Zoom on Android 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.

The new update also fixes minor bugs and allows you to share videos with other members on a call. But it goes without saying, the virtual background is the bigger news out of the two. 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. Also Read - Zoom: How to enable additional security on this video calling app

And now, Zoom Android users can use the same feature through mobile devices. This will ensure you can change the backdrop, especially if you’re taking Zoom calls on-the-go. Having said that, the Android app comes with minor differences compared to the web platform. On Zoom mobile, you can only choose still images as the background. Video support for the background is still restricted to the web version. But still we don’t think that’s a deal-breaker in general. Also Read - Zoom adds new features to enhance video and audio
