Fandom Zoom Backgrounds to Make School or Work More Nerdy!

2020 has come with several challenges, forcing us to adapt to a new way of life. One of those changes is Zoom meetings.  Zoom is a website and app that allows people to do group video chatting. Working adults and students of all ages are using Zoom to get their work done.  A cool feature Zoom has is the ability to change your background. Instead of your camera showing the background of your room, it can show a virtual background putting you anywhere you want.

We at Fandom Spotlite have compiled some of the best virtual zoom backgrounds for fandom lovers. These backgrounds will add a little pizzaz to your next zoom meeting.
