These days, social distancing and self-quarantine have become part of our daily routines, and working from home is the new normal for a lot of us. Video calls through Zoom or Microsoft Teams are an immersive way to stay in touch with co-workers without ever having to set foot outside, and so many companies have already transitioned into using these conference calls in place of meetings.
Now, Bravo is here to take those calls to the next level with all new custom backgrounds!
With these downloadable backgrounds, you don't have to worry about dialing in from a messy bedroom, the kitchen, or the couch. You can take your virtual business calls from the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Clubhouse or use some iconic themes from Below Deck, Below Deck Mediterranean, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, and Vanderpump Rules. We even have your own interview look from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Potomac, and The Real Housewives of New York City. The possibilities are endless.
To download, just right click on your favorite Bravo backgrounds below and save them to your desktop. Then, go to Zoom and click the gear settings symbol in the upper right corner of your screen. Next, click on "Virtual Background" on the bar to your left. Finally, press the plus sign to upload your new background. For Microsoft Teams, click the ellipsis for "More Actions" at the top of your meeting screen, then select "Apply Background Effects," and "Add New." From there, upload the file of your choosing. It's as easy as that! Your background may appear mirrored in self-view, but your team members will be able to see it the correct way.
Once you have your backgrounds ready, you can play around and choose where your next meeting is going to take place.
So, which one are you going to try out first?
