Almost every business, large or small, has become heavily dependant on video conferencing. With less face-to-face interaction, conference calls on Zoom, Google Meet, GoToMeeting, and others have become a part of the daily routine for many of us. With remote work on the rise, this trend is sure to continue.

Aside from work, social interaction with family and friends is often done virtually right now, with in-person gatherings not always possible.

If you want to add a fun touch to your web conferencing, or if you simply want to hide the clutter in your home office, using a background image is a great option. Here at Vecteezy, we have a huge collection of images and photos that are perfect for use as a Zoom background.
