Fun: 17 Singapore-Inspired Zoom Backgrounds For All Kinds Of Zoom Meetings

  

Zoom meetings have pretty much taken over most of our visual communication, be it for work, school or social meetups. Indeed, with the popularity of this video conferencing tool, most of you would have heard of Zoom. But did you know that you can change your virtual background too?

First, you will need to know how to actually change the background. Here is a handy guide to do just that.

And before you start your Zoom meeting and prepare to tickle your meeting roommate, please ensure that your background and the clothes you are wearing has a contrasting colour. For example, if your background is white, try wearing a black top (not everyone has a green screen at home!).

Without further ado, let me present to you 17 hilariously Singaporean Zoom backgrounds. To download, simply right-click the image you want and click ‘Save As…’, or how you would save an image on a webpage from your device.
