Bottom Line — With a video background, I could move around and other people can be behind me without being seen on video.
I work remotely and we use video calls to communicate.
I used to constantly think about where I’m sitting to take video calls. I didn’t want a messy room to show up.
Zoom and Google allow you to change backgrounds. Just google
blurred office background. Grab one of those images and use them.
If it’s a long meeting, I can easily move to another room without the background changing. I can lie down on the couch. It’s not a distracting change and no one knows.
If there’s someone else in the room and they walk past me, video won’t capture that as they are too far and a static background is set. This is especially useful if you have kids in the same room.
