Hi Amisha, 

 

Please note that the details in this Help Center  - based on my experience, the main reasons why your computer may not be able to show blurred background could be:

  • Age of the computer: if you can only use virtual background with a green screen present, you may not be able to use blurred background;
  • You're not on the latest version of Zoom: head to our download center and find the latest version. 

Please read the article mentioned, and if required upgrade to the latest version of Zoom.

There is not option of Virtual background

No, i can't put a backgound

I have a Windows 11 HP and the latest version of Zoom. I can't do anything without a green screen, let alone blur the background. Now what?

I have the same issue. I meet all requirements that the tech specs require, but I have no blur option and if I uncheck the use greenscreen box I have no options.

I also am having a problem with the Blurred Background.  I have the current version the zoom desktop client 5.7.6.  I meet the system requirements for Virtual Background with  the latest version of the  MacOS (version 10.15.7), with the required supported processor 2.5 GHz Dual-Core Intel core i5.  I'm not sure what generation it is.  I've signed into the ZOOM Desktop Client, clicked on the settings (gear), selected Background & Filters.  However, I do not have a "blur option".

Yes, I also do not have the option to blur my background. Please fix this, I think everyone who has zoom installed also has the same problem.
