When the major cities first shut down nonessential businesses and forced companies into working from home, videoconferencing took off. Services like Zoom and Google Meet became essential and we all became more familiar with them as a result. One of the simplest pleasures in quarantine became changing your video background. While at first, changing a background was just a silly, fun thing to do to keep meetings light and entertain your friends and coworkers, a background may be more useful than you think. Especially considering remote work may be the way of the future.

Consider all of the different meetings you have throughout the week. Do you pitch clients? Do you touch base frequently with coworkers? Are you tutoring students or teaching a second language? Do you have a weekly happy hour with friends? There are myriad reasons why you use a videoconferencing tool, so shouldn't you have myriad backgrounds available to you?

With Hello Backgrounds, you will.
