Posted by Raphael Leynes April 16, 2020

With the state of the world at the moment, chances are you’re using a heck of a lot of Zoom and other similar video conferencing apps to communicate and interface with your team. That being said, it’s hard to keep up with the title of being the office’s biggest geek if you don’t have your action figures and posters displayed at your desk. (Yes, this is a top priority at all times) How ever will you actually make interesting conversation? How will you find people around the office who like the same video games as you? God forbid you talk to them about it. 


Luckily, Zoom has your back. Literally! Thanks to its sophisticated virtual background feature you can spice up your meetings with these geeky backgrounds while repping your favorite fandoms. Because you’re cool!
