Awesome Halloween Zoom Backgrounds To Download

It looks like trick-or-treating, just like most other big events, will be going virtual this year. But instead of feeling down about it, it’s simply better to make the best of a situation that is not in one’s control (which in this case is the global pandemic). Fortunately, Zoom has been more forward-thinking than anyone could have possibly imagined.

The video conferencing app’s thrifty background feature is a great way to create the fun/spooky air of Halloween depending on what you’re going for. Indeed this feature does make it possible for us to make the best of a bad situation.
