Zoom Virtual Backgrounds to Do Life Different

Marianne Murphy SIRO Head of Marketing

Life is different now in ways we’d never think possible.

Living all aspects of our lives within the confines of our homes – working, keeping fit, socialising and staying in touch – might have started out as a temporary consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, yet will likely become part of the ‘new normal’ world post COVID-19.

We are building a 100% fibre broadband network and at the heart of our business lies a mission: to facilitate positive changes in people’s lives. When daily lives revolve so much around the computer screen, we saw an opportunity to do our part in helping Irish people adjust to the new reality of living our lives through the screen.

As part of our Do Life Different campaign, we have curated a series of virtual backgrounds that you can use for Zoom, the super popular videoconferencing platform. The backgrounds cater for many situations and preferences: the home office worker can get an office-looking background, the fitness enthusiasts can set themselves in a gym, the outgoing type can be a in a pub or a café. If you live in a crowded apartment, why not get your own empty kitchen space, or better yet, designer walk-in closets. All backgrounds are available for both desktop and mobile.

In particular, we have chosen two backgrounds that reflect the reality we’re living in: the fox taking a casual stroll on Ha’Penny Bridge, and the beautiful Anne’s Lane in Dublin – completely empty except for its fabulous colourfull umbrellas. These have been our most popular downloads.

So there you have it, a collection of Zoom virtual backgrounds for however you want to live your everyday life. In providing these, we hope to play a small part in helping you Do Life Different, whatever your ‘new normal’ will look like.
