I get so excited when there’s a new feature on Zoom and I have to try it out right away! Today we’re looking at the new Immersive View that allows you to choose a virtual background for you and your participants to enjoy. It’s just another fun feature that will help to make your online experience more engaging. You’ll be learning with me as we go…I filmed the video the first time I opened the new feature because I just couldn’t wait to try it out and share it with you! Plus you get a second bonus video (and podcast) in today’s blog, showing you the pros and cons, with additional quick tips about how this new Zoom option fits into your online facilitation.
You are going to have to update your Zoom to the latest version in order to enjoy the new features including Immersive View. CLICK HERE to view a quick video on how to check to make sure you have the latest version and to update Zoom.
You will find the New Zoom Immersive Scene option in the dropdown menu at the right top corner of your screen. Look for the View button and when you hover over it, you will see a dropdown menu that has Immersive Scene at the bottom of the list. Make sure you’re not sharing your screen when looking for this option.
Depending on how many people are on your call will depend on which scene you choose. There are several with options for different numbers of participants. Also you will decide if you want to manually place people or have Zoom do it automatically for you. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s pretty cool!
In the new Zoom Immersive View, you can move people around to where you want to seat them but they can’t move themselves around. There are scenes to accommodate up to 25 people or as few as 2 people. Have some fun while you play around and check out the options. The host is in control of this feature.
I hope you found these tips helpful and fun. This is another way to create a memorable online learning experience for your participants. To learn more about Zoom Immersive, including the version your device needs to be: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360060220511-Immersive-View
