More and more people are using virtual backgrounds.
It’s an interesting feature, isn’t it?
Especially, the virtual background of the smartphone is useful!
Zoom has a feature called Virtual Background that replaces the background with an image.
This was initially a feature that was only available on PCs, but now it can also be used on smartphones.
However, the virtual background of a personal computer and the virtual background of a smartphone are similar and different.
The idea of virtual background is the opposite.
PC virtual background
The virtual background of the personal computer replaces the background with other images based on the background color.
It is recommended that the background be all green, so it is a good idea to install a green plastic cardboard box in the background.
If you select a background image here, the green part of the background will be replaced with the image.
At this time, a green button will be displayed below the image list. (At the red arrow)
This is a sign that green is being replaced as an image.
You can replace the other colors by clicking this green button.
As a test, if you click the green button and then click on the pink part of the clothes, only the pink part of the clothes will be replaced with the image.
You can also replace only the flesh-colored part of the face
In this way, the virtual background of a personal computer has the advantage that you can specify a color to replace with another image.
However, the disadvantage is that you can only replace one color.
If you want to replace the background, you need to unify the background with one color.
Smartphone virtual background
The virtual background of smartphones is the exact opposite of that of personal computers.
The computer replaces the background color with another image, so the background had to be one color.
However, the virtual background of smartphones is created with the idea of replacing non-human images with other images.
In other words, the background can be the same as usual.
Select a virtual background from the “…” at the bottom right of your smartphone.
Then, the part other than the person will be replaced with another image.
With this, you can create a virtual background while walking outside and connecting to Zoom on your smartphone.
The virtual background of the smartphone is very convenient because you can set the image taken by the smartphone as it is.
However, iPhones that can use virtual backgrounds seem to be limited to iPhone8 , iPhone8 PLUS , iPhoneX and later models.
