there is no blur background option in my pc though – Zoom Community.How to Blur Zoom Background (Step-by-Step Guide + FAQs)
I cannot believe this fiasco! So many having the same issue as me and not a peep out of Zoom who has been touting their newest feature which doesn’t work! I screwed around for half an hour on my Windows 10 bit machine, and all of a sudden, a pop-up, I installed it, and there it was! But I have no idea what I did to invoke it. Thereafter, I have been trying to find this patch, to no avail..
Time to move on to some other software. I as well am not able to see a blur option on my virtual backgrounds menu on my laptop. I have updated Zoom to version 5. Would greatly appreciate any help which could be provided. Same problem I have downloaded what seems to be the latest version, as no download came with the Pro upgrade.
Called support but apparently Pro doesn’t include technical support. Extremely frustrated You do not need to have a pro account to use “blur background”. I see that no comment here has been accepted as a solution for this, so I thought I would weigh in! If you cannot turn off the green screen option for virtual background, then your computer will not be compatible with the blur background feature. It is however an excellent starting point, and if your hardware is lower than the minimums listed here you will not be able to use “blur background” or “virtual background without a green screen”.
Thanks Micah! I do see now the blur option requires a processor of i5 or above and mine is just i3. I don’t know why I didn’t notice that requirement earlier. Anyway, at least I have the explanation now. The processor being an i5 is only half the story, just as important is how old the processor is, how many cores the processor has, and what GPU is paired with it. If the blur background feature is missing from Zoom, the most likely reason for it aside from needing a software update is that your computer isn’t new enough or powerful enough for it.
I currently have the same issue. No option to blur my background. And Yes I meet all the requirements to blur my background. I do not even have an option key to blur it, so this shows me it is an issue on Zoom’s end. Please fix and let me know. Zoom Community.

Hello ajaypande I apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing.
If you are on the latest version of Zoom, it is possible that the windows device you are on does not meet the requirements: Image only without a physical green screen Zoom desktop client, version 5. Hikaho Observer. In response to jdott I must have a green screen to use this option?
I am still unable to figure it out. RonM Observer. I’m not able to activate Blur Background on my new laptop. I have downloaded Zoom version 5. If so, perhaps my chip is the limitation? Do I not have enough cores to handle processing for blur? Anupma Observer. In response to thomas I have the same issue Macbook Air Intel Core i5. In response to Anupma.
BillR Observer. In response to av4. Did you ever find out the answer to your blur issue Did you ever find the answer to the problem Did you find the answer I have the same issue.

Let us know if it worked. Sorry, it didn’t work. I have the same problem as others, not being able to use Blur background though all the requirements are met. I have a Macbook Pro mid with a 5th generation Intel processor link. For some reason a 6th generation is required by Zoom link.
Dear Zoom Team, if they can do it for my laptop, you can as well. Thank you! I found the solution for the blurr situation! I was just offered to upgrade to the newest version of zoom and when I did… the blur option now miraculously comes up.
Does anyone know how to actually get someone from tech support on the phone or chat? I’m having the same problem. Checking with Apple Support and have all the right specs. I also have checked my version of Zoom and have the right version there as well. So I really need to talk with tech support through zoom. Any help on how to connect with someone and not a BOT would be so appreciated! Thank you. I have the same concern as everyone here.
I can’t use the blurred background. Can Zoom just facilitate this function? In our office, I feel sad that only we, MacBook Air users, couldn’t apply the blurred virtual background. Just make it available already, please. C’mon Zoom, please release something that works?? I have found a short term fix: join a zoom meeting from your browser instead of from the desktop app, and I have the ability to tick the blur option. I seem to meet all requirements for a virtual background except that my Mac is not a 6th generation processor.
