How to use a virtual background on Zoom without the minimal requirements

Updated: Sep 14

Many people who use Zoom are disappointed from 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 virtual background in your computer.

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


When trying to use a virtual background on Zoom - this is the picture I got.


So how did I solve it? pretty simple:


Step #1


Download Snap Camera and Lens Studio, Lens studio allows you to create filters for Snap camera & Snapchat. Step #2


Follow this guide that will explain how to create your oen filter for Snap Camera.

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