Dragon Age, Mass Effect, And Star Wars Animated Backgrounds On Zoom Are Pretty Sweet

Recommended Posts


First things first: we all know I'm massively obsessed with Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Even my author profile says as much, but I've never done much to hide the fact. Secondly, these backgrounds have apparently been around for awhile now, but I'm always late to the party and just discovered them, but they are...for lack of a better word: dope. 

BioWare offers quite a few animated backgrounds for Zoom calls for Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Anthem, and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Since many of us are still impacted by COVID-19 and the threat of new restrictions looms ahead, Zoom has become an intricate part of our day-to-day, so why not have fun with it? 

These backgrounds are totally free to use, so no worries there, and are really easy to utilize! Download Zoom (a video conferencing software, also free), go into your settings gear wheel in the top right corner, and select the option that says "background & filters." You'll see a few presets in there, but let's be real...why be on a generic beach when you could be on the Normandy instead? Am I right or am I right?

I'm right. 

YOU CAN HAVE ANIMATED MASS EFFECT BACKGROUNDS TOO!?! Why am I so behind on everything?? 😖 pic.twitter.com/2TbDKGDfn9

You can pull really any image you want for this. I tampered with a few settings, including the image at the top with the Starboard lounge from the Mass Effect games. Or, you can pull from the animated high-res videos right here from BioWare to take that fantasy setting to the next level. It's a pretty cool feature, one fans of all game types have been playing around with.

Again, late to the party but if it's new to me, it might be new to somebody else. If you're a BioWare fan, especially of its older games, these animated Zoom backgrounds are just really freaking cool. Enjoy!
