What to Do If Your Blurred Background isn’t Showing Up

The option to blur the background doesn’t always appear during signup. Checking that you’re using the most recent version of Zoom is an easy way to resolve the issue. To see if there have been any changes made to your profile, click the gear icon next to your profile image.

While in most cases this will enough, there have been reports of people needing to restart their machines before the background will activate. Last resort: make sure your computer meets Zoom’s minimum requirements.

Warn you: It may take some time for a blurred backdrop to load. Similarly like any other digital backdrop. As a result, you may be prompted to continue the conference without the background or wait for the latter to load if you transition from one Zoom meeting to another.

If the meeting has to be restarted because the virtual or blurred background is taking too long to load, that is an option.

Conclusion

I don’t think you should blur your background on Zoom, but I had to provide my opinion on anything because this is a lesson on the Zapier app, after all. My kids were watching TV in the living room where my desk is, so I had to hold my recent one-on-one meeting with my manager in the kids’ playroom.

We began talking, and she inquired about the (generous) piece of art that hung behind me. I told her it was a huge mural the kids had drawn that we had up on the wall two years ago and never bothered to take down.

She expressed approval and mentioned that she, too, displayed doodling on her bedroom wall. This guide will let you know how to blur background in zoom windows 10.
