How to share your slides as a virtual background on Zoom- Virtual Office

Updated: Jan 25, 2022

Deliver presentations in a more professional way with the new beta feature Zoom recently released. Instead of sharing your screen, you can now upload your presentation directly to Zoom and use it as your video background for an immersive sharing experience. Presenting your presentation as a virtual background will allow you to position yourself wherever you want on the screen, manage your presentation directly from Zoom and finally stop asking if everyone can see your presentation.

To look more professional, create a virtual office with your slides as a virtual background.
