Hi Rachel! I’m not 100% sure about Vipkid. But, these backgrounds are made available to use on a variety of platforms. So, if Vipkid gives you the option to change the background – then yes, these backgrounds can be easily used.

These are for video recordings as in pre-recorded? Or can they be used as backgrounds as in live sessions such as Google Meet or Zoom videos?

Cassandra Lytch-Colter · Jan 7th, 2021


Yes, Cassandra, these backgrounds are used for live sessions in both Google Meet and Zoom videos! We have a great blog that explains how to use them on these platforms. It can be found by clicking on the link on this resource page or by searching for Video Backgrounds for Teachers.

Alexis Robinson

I can not figure out how to do this I have a chromebook. I tried to follow the directions for meet but could not find the device section. And zoom does not work well with the backgrounds on chromebooks.

Alexis Robinson · Apr 20th, 2020


Hello Alexis! We are sorry you are having trouble with your chromebook. I know from personal experience that you are correct – Zoom doesn’t work as well when using a chromebook. However, have you tried following the steps found here on the Zoom support page We hope this helps. If not, maybe try one of the other video apps if your school district allows it. You might have better luck with one of them. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Natalie · Apr 21st, 2020
