Updated: Jan 25, 2022

Many people who use Zoom are disappointed by the fact that they can't use a virtual background since their system is not supported by Zoom.

I found a way to bypass this problem, this guide is a bit technical but hopefully by the end of it - you'll be able to use zoom background images on your computer.

This guide is written based on a Macbook air 2013 who's system isn't supported by Zoom.

So how did I solve it? pretty simple:

Snap Camera has better software for the backgrounds than Zoom and therefore you will get a working background, Hurray! Special Thanks to Michael Levy from Kanta who showed me this cool hack!
