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.

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.

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
