Meet me in Vienna

The longing to travel is growing by the day. Including on business, of course. Planned meetings and get-togethers in Vienna fell victim to the coronavirus crisis. To make sure you don't have to go entirely without that dash of Viennese flair, our backgrounds of Vienna are now available for your virtual meetings. With just a few clicks, Vienna will arrive in your home office before you know it. 

So, do you fancy a meeting in the Albertina, Vienna State Opera, or the Spanish Riding School?

And this is how it works for Microsoft Teams: 

  1. Select your favorite Vienna backgrounds and download them really easily to your PC or smartphone. 
  2. If you use a PC, copy the image you'd like to use to this folder: C:\[enter the user name of your device here]\AppData\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads 
  3. If you use a Mac, copy the images to this folder on your computer: /users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/Backgrounds/Uploads 
  4. As soon as you start a team meeting, click on the "..." in the menu bar and select "Show background effects". Your image should appear there. 
  5. And the Vienna meeting can start. 

And this is how it works for Zoom: 

  1. Select your favorite Vienna backgrounds and download them really easily to your PC or smartphone. 
  2. Open the Zoom app (you have to download the app to be able to access backgrounds) and click on the arrow on the right next to the icon of your video camera at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Choose "select virtual background" here to upload your new Vienna background.
  4. And the Vienna meeting can start.
