This is not True, my virtual background has been working ever since i bought my Surface Pro X SQ2 3 months ago, as of last week it was still working, i just notice today at my zoom meeting the the virtual background feature is greyed out now now it states that this computer does not support virtual background Solved: download the zoom 32bit version, bypass the upgrade to latest version prompt and you can use the virtual background in the 32bit version.
Thanks for this tip, sadly didn’t work for me. I just got my X a couple of days ago and this is really frustrating. Along with it not being able to install express vpn.
You tip does enable the option for virtual backgrounds but when I go to choose one they’re all greyed out and state that my device doesn’t support the feature. Would really like someone from MS to follow up as based on posts I’ve come across this is a very recent issue. Why does my computer not support the virtual background setting in ZOOM?
Not sure I understand why you think Zoom updating their app and breaking support for virtual backgrounds is Microsoft’s fault. I would encourage you to contacting Zoom support as John Neil recommended and ask them to release a native ARM app for Windows, as that’s the real fix.
I will try to do so too. I haven’t tried it yet, but maybe the x64 emulation will fix the issue with the newer Zoom app. I’ll try to test it when I have a chance. Thing is, people on here small sample, I know were saying it worked fine until a couple of weeks ago.
I’ve had my X for less than a week now, I uninstalled and rebooted, have tried the 32 bit Zoom version as well as installing Zoom 5. Zoom is on 5. Regardless of which it is, I agree that Zoom need to release a native ARM app for true compatibility going forward.
I haven’t used zoom for a couple months maybe or at least haven’t updated it , so the version on my Pro X is currently 5. It looks like I can still select virtual backgrounds no problem, though I haven’t actually joined a meeting.
I’ve upgraded it to Windows 11 from the developer channel, so I would think if it was something Microsoft broke it would have broken on mine too, since I’m on newer code than someone not running a dev build of Windows.
Of course that introduces other variables so I guess it’s hard to say for certain. Edit: I joined a test meeting and the background worked just fine. Oddly enough, it’s not prompting to upgrade. You only need version 3. If you need to manually update your system, you can tap on your profile picture in your Zoom Desktop Client then select “Check for Updates. The Zoom support page of system requirements contains in-depth information about the system requirements you need to use a virtual background without a green screen.
To do so, you first need to sign into the Zoom web portal. If you’re an account member, go to Meeting Settings, but if you’re an account administrator, head to My Meeting Settings. From there, select the Meeting tab, head to the Virtual Background option, and toggle the status to turn on the feature.
It’s important to note that you need to logout of the Zoom Desktop Client and log in to it again for the Virtual Background to work.
