A Participant is an invitee in a meeting scheduled by someone with a Host license. People can join your meeting for free from their phone, desktop, mobile, and tablet devices. Zoom doesn’t require people to set up an account in order to join a meeting.
You can enjoy unlimited 1 to 1 meetings. The Basic Plan has a 40-minute time limit on meetings with three or more total participants. But if you opt for a pro plan to have greater features, it’s all up to you!
Need more meeting time?
Either close out the room you’re in to begin a new meeting or extend your meeting time with a pro plan option. If you decide to upgrade to a pro plan, Twiniversity points out that you can cancel at any time.)
The free Zoom account offers an unlimited number of meetings, along with ticket support. Video conferencing features include HD video and voice, full screen and gallery view (Show up to 25 video feeds per screen), simultaneous screen share, a waiting room, and an active speaker view –Zoom detects which person is speaking and automatically shifts the video feed to the current speaker.
How to Add a Baby Shower Background to Zoom
What is a Zoom baby shower background? Simply put, this super cool Zoom feature enables you to display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting. For example, if you are having a meeting either for business or just for chatting with friends, you may appear as if you’ve just landed on the moon with one virtual background. Other backgrounds zoom you to the set of popular TV shows and movies, as well as relaxing vacation destinations. Zoom’s Help Center advises that this feature works best with a green screen and uniform lighting. You’ll have your shower backgrounds ready to go in no time. Your virtual baby shower will surely be so fun and interesting with the zoom baby shower background images.
Do It Yourself!
Want to upload your own images or videos as backgrounds for your zoom baby shower? You can do that, too! There are no size restrictions when adding your own zoom background. However, Zoom does recommend cropping the image to match the aspect ratio of your camera before uploading it. Zoom background can easily be applied using Desktop Client (a Zoom app downloaded and installed on the computer/laptop or phone).
Wondering how to set up Zoom for your virtual baby shower? Simply follow these steps and adding baby shower backgrounds to Zoom will be a breeze!
- Log in to Your Account – Go to https://zoom.us/. Click MY ACCOUNT.
Navigate to the Settings on the Left-hand Menu – Under meetings, choose “In Meeting (Advanced).”
- Find the “Virtual Background” feature – enable it by clicking the slider to the right.

For Windows and Mac:
- Click the Settings tab.
- Click “Video.” Take a look at the video to get the best results for the virtual backgrounds.

Then select “choose video settings.” Click Virtual Background and select the new background image that you’d like to use.
